    He has a long active win streak for sure.

    But he did not have the greatest performance ever against Nate.

    He should have gone for the kill and brutalized him.

    “Let’s say they do give Colby the title shot, I’m not fighting no one else unless it’s a title shot. That’s just it,” Edwards told the UFC’s John Gooden. “I’m not gonna start fighting 10, 11, 12 fights and still ain’t got a title shot. I’ve earned my way. I didn’t b*tch and moan when I took my loss against Kamaru. I worked my way back up to now have a 9, 10-fight win streak. I feel like I deserve it.

    Leon Edwards's highest rank win was RDA who at the time was number 8 he doesn't deserve a title shot at all. He needs to man up and fight Masvidal or Colby.

    I say he's waited long enough, just wait a little longer for the title shot he's entitled to.

    Edwards should have fought Wonderboy when he had the chance.

    Top 5 win would have had him in the right spot.

    Since when does deserving a title shot mean you are going to get a title shot? He has to make the UFC think people want to see it and I dont think his last fight did that.

    I'm sure off of the Nate money he can afford to sit out all he wants, stay fit for if Colby drops out.. He does deserve it, just like Tony did.

    Why the hell should he fight Masvidal? It's another no win situation for him same as vs Nate.

    He doesn't deserve a title shot yet. He almost got knocked the fuck out by a LW part time fighter.

    Edwards wanted to fight Masvidal since he sucker punched him and Jorge wasn’t interested.

    Why should Edwards give him the fight now? UFC likely want this so that if Jorge wins, they can give him a third undeserved title shot.

    Dude has no top 5 wins. Might has well give Travis Fulton or Dan Severn title shots if winning streaks is all that matters

    So we have Edwards and Colby waiting for that title shot... Give it to Wonderboy and these two divas will wait. <mma3>

    What do you mean allow it? Dana has said it many times, with certain intention of course, they cant force anyone into a fight they dont want, wether the were not able to make Masvidal fight him after the sucker punch, and they wont make Edwards fight him now, and that still doesnt mean Masvidal will take it...that guy was KTFO not long ago, he might try to wait for Nate rematch instead, a fight that will sell with a big reward, instead of getting outpointed by Edwards.

    He's not entitled to anything. Noone likes him or cares to see him fight. He's boring and got a bad attitude. If I'm Dana, he's fighting or he's not getting a sniff of the belt

    Rankings aside. Unpopular and non selling fighters have no pull to call their shots like that. If Thompson wins, Colby and him could be the next in line for title shots and leon will have to fight a top 5 or lose out

    He takes fights against opponents that don't do much for him in addition to underwhelming performances in them.
    But the guy is on a fucking 9 fight win streak, would be 10 if not for his eyepoke fuck up imo.

    He deserves the shot more than Colby right now. Granted I would rather see the Colvington rematch, in terms of who deserves it, Leon is in the lead.
