    The guy is on a 7 win streak, 9-1 in his last 10 with the loss being a close deicison to the champ Usman, yet he's struggling to get fights :eek: I think he's pretty underrated, beat Gunnar and even out grappled him, beat Cerrone comfortably, beat Luque who has been a killer since that loss and I think he gave Usman one of his toughest fights to date. RDA ducking him so he should get Lawler or Wonderboy

    Tough spot to be in, all he can do is stay in shape and hope he gets the call to replace someone.

    Who wants to fight the guy who just lost to masvidal without throwing a single punch.

    RDA turning down the fight makes no sense. He accepts bad stylistic matchups all the time, why not fight a guy on a long win streak if you wanna climb back to the top as quickly as possible?

    Got anything besides lame jokes? At least you didnt talk about that Chicken wing and Pina colada joke.

    It's pretty sad if WW's are ducking him. Him vs Ponz would be good but I am sure Ponz wouldnt want to face him as well. Ponz is retired I believe lol

    WW has three guys in the top 15 with 7 fight win streaks and nobody to fight. LW has bigger names but WW has more depth right now.

    It's pretty clear why nobody want to fight him, there isn't really any upside. With new additions of known fighters at WW in Pettis, Diaz, Kevin Lee, Askren. It's pretty clear why no one wants to fight him because they probably think it's going backwards instead forward. The Masvidal situation didn't do him any favors also.

    Hes been ducked hard because hes a very well rounded good fighter but his name isnt carrying much weight. The UFC need to push him with the pro mo a bit.

    Probably because he just fought a month ago. Maybe he wants a break. I do think that RDA, Thompson, Lawler all make sense for Edward's at this stage.

    Y'all goofy for thinking him getting cheap shotted means anything. Yeah it was funny but not only would Leon beat Masvidal pretty easily, he'd beat the majority of top 10 welterweights.

    He's being picky and refusing anyone lower ranked than him, which is understandable considering his win streak, but he can't be surprised when the guys ranked higher than him also refuse to fight lower ranked guys.

    All jokes and memes aside, he’s a pretty solid fighter for 170.

    He’s well rounded and has a good motor.

    I could be mistaken, but if I remember correctly masvidal approached Leon with his hands behind his back or something & then stuck him a few times real quick. Instantly Leon was held back so he had no chance to even retaliate.

    I’d have to see the video again though. It’s been awhile.
