i got tears in my eyes
i’m happy for him
@Drew R nearly ALL fighters come from the “dirt”. The cringy part about “literally crying “ about Leon’s win is that if Usman won no one would be crying about Leon’s loss. All these phony cry babies that are so emotional wouldn’t spare a second thought about him if he lost. They would be saying things like I knew Usman’s unstoppable, Leon’s not on Usman’s level and other things of the same nature. Just enjoy the fights and shut up. I wonder what these people will say when Usman demolishes him in their rematch. Probably cry about that too.
Even thru the Masvidal-exchange Leon’s handled self with such great Class
We all got chills with that post fight interview from Leon!! Look at me now!!
For real bruh
Yeah EY TYRON LOOK AT HIM NOW
His raw emotion made me tear up especially when he said his been doubted his whole life. Look at me now will be forever inspiring and quoted in ufc history Well done champ. 💥👊🏽🇬🇧
Same here man. after all that
“ I was born in Jamaica with nothing, I lived in a wooden shed with a zinc roof. Look at me now I’m world champion.”
Absolutely incredible words from the humble champ.
@Mark actually second, Leon said it first I jus commented about it. Spread love❤️
@Tomas Arepo you’re the first person in the world to ever say “zinc roof” congrats 🤣
@cachifli no need to even reply to them lol let them have their opinion 😂😂
@BidoMaggot zinc is a metal
Zinc roof 💀💀💀
The way he said “Look at me now” hit different. You could feel the raw emotions he’s projecting. No doubt the most inspirational win
I watched Leon get disregarded and disrespected for years and I get the feeling he has been treated this way even prior to mixed martial arts entering his life. I’m so proud of him and his never give up attitude. He silenced all the haters in that moment.
@Vote4Pedro bruh usman earns bw 1 to 2 million including ppv. He is promoted heavily for a reason by ufc
@Vote4Pedro the UFC pay method’s are so shit
@The Prediction MASTER You probably right but you know what Leon ain’t giving back to Usman? The 400k Leon got for the fight plus 50k bonus for fight of the night and a sponsorship incentive worth 32k 😎. All that for one fight. Usman did end up getting 892k even tho he lost but he was the defending champ so there’s that. Pretty good shit for both of them.
Leon doing the entire UK proud, coming from behind and knocking out an absolute monster in his prime and as Dana said was on his way to becoming the GOAT. Unreal scenes and so deserved for Rocky!
@Matthew Corey Villa Leon edwards even said he’s repping the uk what are you on lmao
Bump the UK. The man is a true Jam. He just lived there. But that swag is all Spanish Town. Colonizers always trying to lay flaming the black man.
Unreal scenes! Everything about it is legendary. Been rooting for Leon for a few years now and i haven’t been more happier for any fighter since ive been hooked lol
If this doesn’t give you chills check your pulse.
“Look at me now!” will be etched in MMA history forever.
“Pound for pound, headshot, dead!” Coldest line in ufc history
I was thinking , i must not be the only one that HEARD that PURE RAW LETHAL ASSASIN LINE ! 100 % Best LINE EVER ! # 2 , my right hand COACH ! …..broke MOUNTAINS ! ! : Khamzat
@Tim Filipiuk yeah that’s the hardest shit of all time bro.. don’t listen to others.. we know the truth
@Sleazy Eezy that’d be something
That’s how the trilogy intro should end when the fighters are about to walk in for the fight!
You can hear the quiver in his voice. The raw emotion is there. Makes everyone else feel it. Well deserved
@SAVAG3MMA the pure euphoria he’s feeling in that moment, proving the world wrong , changing his and his family’s life forever. Doing after all the adversity and then on top being down in the fight. We could only dream of that
Rawest emotion ever. We can only dream of that feeling he must’ve felt in that moment
