    Keeps winning fights but can’t get the fans on his side abs can’t get the UFC behind him either.

    Boring style. Will get dominated by Kamaru for 5 rounds and then fade into obscurity.

    Sadly Jon Is an incel now since his divorce.

    Jon= Leon
    Kamaru = GSP

    If you think Leon's fights are on par with smoke break Fitch, I've got some beach front property in Wyoming to sell you.

    Also, losing decisively to the most active champion we have right now is nothing to be ashamed of.

    Leon's fights aren't boring, they are just average and not particularly interesting. He's not a guy who will stink up a card like Fitch did.

    Does Leon also have yellow fever like Jon Fitch?

    I wouldn’t say Fitch faded into obscurity. He had some great wins post GSP and a solid run in WSOF/PFL.

    The best thing that ever happened to Leon was getting flash KO’d by Masvidal and TKO’d by Nate Diaz

    The Leon Edwards against Bellal was very entertaining and looked unstoppable.

    Leon vs Diaz was Jon Fitch-esque but not as dominant or wrestling heavy.

    Overall if feels like the UFC has or is shifting towards more exciting fighters and finishers getting better opportunities in matchmaking. Oliveira and Jiri come to mind.

    Fitch is a cool guy. Get over yourself. "Incel" is a really stupid and most projection-based term.

    Fitch's ex-wife is beautiful. I'm not sure if he likes asian women or fell in love with one. I'm sure since his wife left him he is cured of his "yellow fever". I hear he won't eat Chinese or Korean food anymore.

    You gonna compare a snoozefest grappler with a high level technical striker in Leon? Some dude said the Nate fight was boring? Because Leon was busting his ass up n Nate was running turning his bitcch ass butt to leon. Leon's entertaining imo.

    I think his problem was the masvidal shiit was bad publicity, even tho we all know masvidal been ducking him ever since.. and his inactivity, if he was more active he'd be more relevant.. no one can deny his streak just like Do Bronx, mans been putting in that work consistently

    Leon has no charisma and lacks the killer/finishing instinct. Call me crazy though but I like his fights.

    Fitch was worse. But..

    He was given alot of opponents that couldnt stop the TD,and he'd do the bare minimum to stop the fight from being stood up.

    For a while he was one of the most boring fighters to watch tbh.

    If you gave Fitch a tough opponent that forced him to fight,you could get good stuff out of him. Erick Silva fight was actually alot of fun.

    Fitch beat the #1 contender and was then it himself. Leon's never been that. Colby's been in front of him. Burns as well. Style wise neither of them is a fan favorite, so in that sense, yes. Leon will get the shot eventually, lose, and fade away.
