    Leon got wobbled by a Lightweight Journeyman in the twilight of his career. Masvidal pieced up Nate. The story is there and it makes sense. Leon is probably not going to get any rub from beating Nate, the Last 1:06 will be remembered more than Leon dominating Nate.

    Make the fight, let Leon get some Stock.

    I assume he takes him down and it raises his stock. Or he gets clipped and that’s the end of the run.

    Guys like Nate and Jorge don’t belong in contender fights. Their there for fun just bleed fights. Hopefully they use those 2 right there next fights.

    Khamzat if he wants to wait until 2022, and Usman is fighting Colby next...

    Good looking fight for Masvidal! If that’s how he fought Nate, he’s going to get three pieced again.

    Masvidal fucks him up pretty badly, I'm not interested in that fight

    I feel like that's a step down for Leon. I think he gets the title shot and Mas rematches Wonderboy

    Leon doesn't deserve the fight. I've been saying this for over a year. He has to earn his baptism.

    Masvidal lands and Edwards falls.

    Masvidal did it better.

    On a side note it's hilarious how fickle mma fans are. First Masvidal was gonna fuck up Leon, then people switched sides and said Leon would outclass him, and now people are backing Masvidal to win again.

    Honestly rewatching that Leon recovered fairly fast.

    I don't think it would be a smart fight for Masvidal to take at all. He wants to return in December, at which point he'll be 37 years old and coming off a brutal KO. With decades of wars behind him. His days as a top contender are over. So why fight a boring, albeit legitimately elite top fighter in Leon Scott, who he'll probably lose a decision to? He should just instead take a few fun winnable money fights and then call it a career.

    When Masvidal stops ducking him, yes.

    No ain’t happening. Burns is already fighting Wonderboy and how is fighting the guy who beat Nate easier a step down? Also Colby is probably getting the rematch with Usman.

    I know Mas just got Koed by the champ, but at this point everyone has lost to Usman. I like the Mas Leon fight at this point for entertainment purposes but doesn’t make sense is if Mas wins it since he wouldn’t get another rematch with Usman.

    I always thought Leon vs Mas would be a close and competitive fight.
    People before this fight were saying Leon would run through Mas, but I never saw that. Maybe now, since Jorge just got KO'd and is probably out of his prime.
