    The narrative around a potential fight between Edwards and Masvidal seemed to be overwhelmingly that Edwards would cruise to a decision win, that Jorge is scared, ducking, etc.

    But after watching Masvidal toy with Nate and finish him, and Edwards backpedalling and clinching for dear life to survive for another decision, are you still as convinced that Leon is such a favourite in that fight?

    I don’t think Jorge is a world beater or anything, but Edwards might be one of the most overrated guys on the roster, And I wouldn’t be surprised if he got knocked out by Street Jesus especially after what we saw the other day.

    Mas didn't finish Nate. The doctor did. It's definitely a highly intriguing matchup even without the 3 piece and soda incident.

    They both absolutely smashed Nate. Mas was more vicious while Edwards was smoother yet still just as effective.

    Sherdog told me not to like Edwards' style but I'm sorry I did enjoy his technical brilliance. I'm not confident one way or the other in the head to head matchup but it seems to me that Edwards might be the better welterweight overall.

    Just my 2 cents.

    No. I always thought Jorge would win.

    Who thought Edwards would beat Masvidal... I thought we all pretty much agree it would be another Baptism but Eddie was stuck in the UK during the pandemic for this to happen...

    If Leon has to wait it out for a title shot, another money fight with Mas would make sense..

    I'd favour Leon, but I favoured Till too... Who knows how that KO will have affected Mas, he's getting on a bit now too.

    I’d take Jorge before the Usman fight but he’s turning 37 and I would like to see how he recovers from getting KTFO first.

    I think Jorge will be gun shy or tentative if they fight now. Leon by decision or late finish IMO

    Everyone is forgetting that Masvidal doesn't have Diaz cardio and is unlikely to crack Edwards that late into a fight. Edwards still would win if he is defensively smart like he was the majority of the Diaz fight.

    I could see Jorge finishing him or the fight being competitive and Jorge coasting the last round to lose a close decision.

    Edwards has a glass chin so he would get baptized by the Jesus.

    I hope Jorge beats up Edwards but my brain says Leon wins.

    Masvidal has the power to put anyone away, but Leon is more technical. It's a close fight, but I think Leon takes it.
