    Because the first fight was 1 of the 5 best WW title fights ever, and because you lost to Burns after Leon barely survived vs Nate.

    Usman by ko/tko round 3

    Purely for the entertainment value. Edwards should rightfully be fighting for the title, but he just had a pretty disappointing performance against Diaz which was supposed to be his showcase fight, and Colby's fight with Usman was much more competitive and entertaining than Usman/Edwards.

    'The guy is almost 40. Who’s had more title shots than Wonderboy? He’s on a two-fight winning streak. He beat a guy from Outback steak house (Geoff Neal) and then he beats some other jobber (Vicente Luque) and now he thinks he gets a title shot. Bro, you had like two or three title shots, more title shots than anybody in the division. Sit down, kid. And stop identifying as Wonderboy. You’re not a boy, you are a 40-year-old man and you drive kids around in a Karate truck,”--- Covington.

    Before he lost another stinker


    Wonderboy is trying to clap back and failing

    Why? Because Colby was less than a minute away from winning that decision. I dont think there is a more dangerous fight for Usman than Colby. We need this rematch.

    If Thompson could've gotten by Burns, then he likely would've gotten the shot. However, that didn't happen, so I guess Colby was next in line.

    Because their first fight was great, and nobody else is a clear contender

    I mean he's technically not wrong but weird timing him piping up after a loss. I think if Leon had finished Nate he would have gotten the shot instead, hell even with an impressive win he likely would have got the next crack at Usman but he just ended up surviving.

    Don't have anything since sherbros gave so many good answers before me.
    I don't understand why so many people are against that fight. Wasn't the 1st one fun?

    Because it makes more sense? Colby is still Usmans hardest fight currently....Leon could win...but it would be by a quiet decision. Usman vs Colby 1 was a classic scrap, I looked forward to #2.

    Yep, certainly Usman's most competitive one in recent memory too. It's also a fight where I don't mind who wins, if Colby does it opens up the division to other interesting match ups, if Usman does we get to see the memes of Colby likely ko'd again. Give Edwards the winner and go from there.

    At least Wonderboy is willing to fight other legitimate contenders unlike Colby who has a sat on a win over the ghost of Woodley for a year.

    Colby was not a minute away from winning that fight as reasonably Kamaru was winning the 5th and that knockdown down definitely won it for him outside of the stoppage. The judge who had it for Colby? Sal fucking D'Amato.

    Wonderboy got out wrestled by a juiced up 155er. Usman would just take him down and hold him there.
