    I don't think i've ever heard Wonderboy's name come out of Usman's mouth. It's very obvious WB should be next in line if he beats Burns.

    Yes he sucks because he got caught by another professional fighter. Solid logic.

    He did get KOd by Pettis, who then got tooled up by Nate Diaz, who is now fighting the #3 WW on an 8 fight win streak. This isnt MMAth but just objective facts so I don't see any reason for Usman to mention WB until after his fight with Burns.

    The winner of Diaz/Edwards should be fighting Usman plain and simple.

    If they fight in the big cage, Wonderboy could be a major problem for Usman. Usman would have a hard time getting his hands on him because the difference in footwork is actually comical. Wonderboy is next level and Usman is a major plodder.

    Wonderboy v Edwards should be the title eliminator but whatever...

    Diaz has no business fighting for the title whether he wins or loses that fight. He has one win in the last 5 years.

    Speaking of people not wanting to fight WB, Edwards is another one of those people.

    Do you see any reason as to why Usman would mention interest in fighting Chiesa then? Who's ranked lower than WB? That fight would make much less sense than WB. In every way.

    If Nate Diaz beats Edwards he should absolutely not get a titleshot over WB if he beats Burns. How does that make sense?

    If the fine gentlemen in the top of the WW division would start fighting other fighters maybe the division wouldn't be so stale and we'd have actual deserving contenders for an active champ.
    UFC really needs to do something about this.
    Get outta here with Wonderboy, man. 3-3 in his last 6.

    Diaz has won 3 out of his last 5 fights and 4 out of his last 7 with loses being *1 doctor stoppage, *1 majority decision, and *1 UD to a fighter that went on to win the LW title. If he defeats Leon Edwards he would have defeated the next contender for the belt anyway and would have 4 wins out of his last 6. You can bitch and moan about it all you want but at the end of the day, there's nothing you can do about it so you might as well just stfu.

    Nate Diaz defeating the virtual number one contender for the belt makes perfect sense as to why he should get a title shot. How dumb does it sound to give Edwards a title shot with a win over Diaz but not vice versa, when has that ever been the case for any contender eliminator. Yalls logic makes no sense "Oh yeah Nate just beat a guy who's cleaned out the WW division but he himself is not worthy because he hasn't done the same"? Yeah ok, but yall were calling for Khamzat to get a title shot with a win over Edwards.

    Lmao! One of those wins you’re referring to was against Gray Maynard, at LW, 8 years ago. That’s how irrelevant Nate Diaz currently is. Dude didn’t even get the decision against a gassed Conor in their third fight and he’s supposed to be a contender at WW? Laughable

    Really like this fight... Usman's last 3 fights have been against 155 journeymen... Time to give us a reason to bite on the GOAT talk...
