    It’s time for that to happen.

    Masvidal assaulted him and didn’t get arrested for it.

    If Masvidal comes in all aggressive maybe he can force Leon to actually fight.

    After losing 2 straight title fights I'm not sure where Jorge's head is at but he should be able to beat Leon. Also, Leon got himself assaulted. How dumb can you be to get hit after walking towards somebody talking shit?

    i think he was walking by him and decided to talk shit on the way. I don’t think he planned it.

    like calling someone a bitch when you walk passed them in the hallway In high school.

    Not many people will turn and punch you in the face.

    After seeing Diaz almost put Edwards out cold, I'm fairly confident Jorge would knock him out at some point in the fight.

    They've tried to make that fight at least twice already. Masdival don't want no smoke with Leon.

    the only problem with your idea, is that Masvidal has been running from Leon ever since that day...

    sorry, but he was SMART enough to capitalize on it while not having to actually fight Leon.
    He had nothing to gain fighting a top contender while he was getting title shots even for completely made-up belts.

    After Masdival got 1 shotted by Usman.

    People have short memories. It wasn't that long ago people were calling Usman Snoozeman because he was a decision machine.

    He still is. Finishing a fifty fight, sixteen defeat journeyman won’t change that narrative

    Leon needs Usman, so he can be humbled

    Jorge knows he won't win that in a cage, when he can't sucker punch and there is nobody to break them up.

    He'll keep ducking while making excuses about wanting money fights.

    Masvidal absolutely refuses point blank to have anything to do with Leon. Like Leon said, he can't make a fighter fight him.
    But they should firght for the BMF belt.
    Barring a lucky punch, Masvidal will get outclassed and embarassed by Leon.

    Masvidal walked up to him as he was a good 5 or 6 feet away going in a different direction. The coward calmly walked up to him with his hands behind his back in a non threatening manner, and proceeded to sucker punch him. But on sherdog he gets maximum respect. Should have been arrested.
