Leon went from “I believe I deserve a title shot” to “look at me now” to “head shot dead”. Main character development right there.
Proper cheesy this comment.
@rajah ferrier i would think that too if i watched my fav fighter get ko’d like that
@M Hutch Nerds are popular now.
@rajah ferrier Spend less time online and get a hobby then.
2 wins over one of the most dominant welterweight champions in UFC history, he should be proud of himself 👏 Big up Leon doing bits for Birmingham & the UK! Brumtown 0121 🏆
@DomesticUse ONLY no where near gsp. Stop
@Nate Betts Yh , it was more like a chess game than a fight imo. Usman tried to break Leons defence but he couldn’t , because Leon controlled the fight with his low kicks. He was in big trouble one time imo , but he grabbed the fence at that point. That was a really dangerous position , if he hadn’t grabbed the fence there it could’ve easily ended in submission right there imo. Anyways it wasn’t a spectacular or entertaining fight, but it was close and tense.
Usman is forever retired…😅😂😂
@DomesticUse ONLY u trippin lil bro
His takedown defence was phenomenal
@Morgo he grabbed the fence once lmaoo unserious ppl
I think only roid Hendricks and GSP could easily take him down….. I think Colby wil have a hard time against Leon.
@Yussuf Hussein And Kamaru getting ‘kicked’ in the nuts and recovering 2 secs later wasn’t suspect at all
Kamaru’s legs dont work
Congratulations to Leon. So happy for him. Well deserved
Usman didn’t do enough whatsoever to win that. He should now retire.
@Azretah lol yeah those 50 leg kicks really devastated Usman 😂 Edwards is a coward and lame to watch. Usman obviously won
How did Usman win? With what damage?
@Azretah Nah usman def won. Plus Leon kicked him in the nuts and held the cage for his life
An incredible story and Leon is my favourite fighter today after Jiří Procházka. No arrogance, no drivel, but action. Congratulations from the Czech Republic 🇨🇿
@Shaheed Harun it’s fine because nobody cares
Leon is as boring as Usman if not more. Absolute snoozer of a fight .. I kept falling asleep
@Top Secret What about Yair?
Jiri is a real martial artist in actions and character
Jiri is my favourite fighter after Izzy! I’m a sucker for guys with incredible technique like those guys! ❤️🇬🇧
Leon is such a good striker. Went back and watched him fighting nate diaz, and his patience, defense, and shot selection is awesome.
His punch game needs improving though big time, but yes he’s very good
Don’t think he’s that good with his hands tho. But I agree with the rest , he has great defence. I don’t really like those kind of fighters tho , it’s nog that entertaining. At least not for me 😅
Nate slept this dude 👌
@Adam BenelhachemiNate was more hurt
He knows how important rhythm is.
Masterful performance by Leon, done exactly what he had to do.
@PublicEnemy-1 zero control, backed up the whole fight like a coward, did zero to dictate the pace. Coward fighter, lame champion, can’t wait to see him lose and instantly be forgotten about. It’s OBVIOUS that fight was rigged since all the money was on Usman.
@LaTrell Jones go and grab some salt and eat it sunshine, face it Usman was average Leon hit cleaner shots
@LaTrell Jonesone fence grab 🤓 one foul. But keep talking. He got the point deduction anyways so cry about it
@LaTrell Jones just like khabibs full career, yes.
@Mart Tyler im not salty leon was the better man , but he has done if before and that stings with me
Kamaru did not look the same. Was very hesitant with almost everything. Props to him for keeping his usual pressure, but it wasn’t effective unfortunately. I do believe he can come back from this, but not sure if he’ll find the motivation at this point. If he decides he can retire and everyone should salute this man for the run he’s had! 100% Hall of Fame material!
Yea this may be the end of Usman besides from a few money fights. Dude doesn’t even have knees left.
@EyeSee ok, maybe just as big
@Mad Villain he did not ever look bigger than Jan I don’t know what Ur smoking lol
@Milan Wolfi how can 8 people like your comment that is blatantly a lie. 9 years? Weird.
Well yeh because he didn’t have anything for Leon. All he has got is his wrestling and his right hand. Once Leon was able to show, as he did in the 1st round of the last fight, that he can handle Usmans wrestling pretty easily- then it was just a matter of Leon picking him apart with his superior striking. Wasn’t much Usman could do really.
Usman will never be the same. Hadn’t lost in 9 years and never been KO’d… he didn’t look the same tonight.
Edwards is his boogeyman
@BigRandomUn he looked horrible, he looks old and slow, to be honest he needs to retire, this was a very bad look for him, hes beat up and just using his platform to have another few fights and take some millions, nothing wrong with that but hes not a draw or main card at this point.
@Don Jon He’s one of the greatest fighters the division has seen give him some respect.
@Unknown angler 🎣 Once.
He should retire
Takedown defence & kicks really were the story of the fight. I had it 48-46 edwards personally .
@Denis Luzaic Yeh I was getting pissed when people were talking about Usman winning round 4. He literally didn’t do anything. They were talking about round 3 with the 10- 8 though lol.
I had Leon at 50 – 0
49-46 Connor mcgegor
@XK I agree I have usman 2 and 3 had it 47 47
Who cares yours personally xD
