Pointing that finger separated him from a moment of Glory, and a couple hundred thousand dollars.

If Chael had some of Nate's weed would Chael react to questions in light speed mode still?
BlakeCanDesign
BlakeCanDesign:
If Leon ever win the belt, I promise you all the commentary would be how amazing it was that Usman landed some good shots in the 2nd round. And how they can’t wait to talk about the rest of the division, and then totally forget Leon even exists. AGAIN! What a joke 😂

Just how good is chael's predictions
INFINITE UNIVERSE
INFINITE UNIVERSE:
Leon Edwards looked vastly overrated in this fight where he showed a lack of a chin and fought far too cautiously to deserve a title shot. Nate is not even a top contender and has only one win since 2016. Frankly Nate did look good and only landed one lucky punch in the last round. Other than that Nate clowned, turned his back, and did everything except fight for 4 rounds.

I respect Nate Diaz 💯, but Leon Edward's did a great job as well 👏 I can't take that from him, he won hand's down. So congratulations to Leon Edward's, you should fight Jorge Masvidle next, see if you can get revenge on that 3 piece and a soda. 😆

Now it's just 'the Bad Guy' - poor Chael 😂

He looks like he showed up at school and his best friend was off sick.

WOW Nate hit him once ... isn't he Awesome give him another BMF belt
The Doctor
The Doctor:
If Nate threw a right uppercut instead of pointing at Leon, he would've dropped him. Prime example of why you shouldn't admire your work in a fight. Still epic tho
Jarvis Reeves
Jarvis Reeves:
What fight did they watch? Nate got bludgeoned for 25 min landed one KO shot and was too stupid to turn it into a TKO.

Tomi Adewole
Tomi Adewole:
Great win for Leon. We learned two things from this fight though:
1. Leon Edwards is not ready for King Usman. Not even close.
2. He may have lost this fight, but at the end of the Universe, it'll only be Nate Diaz standing
Nick Hayden
Nick Hayden:
It's truly impressive how good their cardio is.
A1 RB Battles
A1 RB Battles:
Respect to Nate for almost beating Leon. Almost doesn't equal a win tho, give Leon his roses the man made a mess of Nates face and was skillful and dominant in rounds 1-4. Hats off to both fighters
Iron Front

Makes you wonder what would've happened with masvidal if the fight never got stopped for blood.

Tony Gareth
Tony Gareth:
The Diaz bro’s are tough and I usually like them but it’s just excuse after excuse with them! It’s not cool and they need to stop. If there were 6 or 7 rounds maybe Nate wins, but it’s 5 rounds and Nate lost. That’s all there is to it. Of course the bro’s are crowd favorites because they’re tough and take a beating then come back and win or almost win. It is impressive but they are not champions, they’re just good fighters and entertainers.

Gilbert Melendez is my favorite commentator. He's always right on the money. PS, ONE HELLOFA FIGHTER‼️👊👊. Vinny 🇺🇸

Mikhail:
I think if Leon takes the belt, you can arrange a rematch with Nate, it will be amazing
R. Gal
R. Gal:
Melendez with some great takes. It's perfect when analysts and commentators are fighters because they know what's going on.
Judges should have some martial arts experience too. I get they shouldn't necessarily be fighters because of conflict of interest but a little more insight into the game would help them a lot. Nevertheless, the sport is evolving.

Unclephilly82:
This fight was crazy good....if nate rushed him he wouldve won at the end. Great Fight!! Leon put in that work! Nate is just a Legend!
Gavin C320
Gavin C320:
Fact is Leon rode out the round even though Diaz had a full minute, and by the looks of things would have got back up off that stool refreshed and ready to chop that leg again . Fair play to Nate tho

Leon getting treated like Jon Fitch, he keeps winning... Yet it feels like he's coming off a loss

In a sport where milliseconds make a huge difference I can’t help but think he might’ve won the fight if he didn’t stop and point. Hope to see him in the ring again soon
