Nice to hear him joke and laugh and actually show real energy, true confidence and happiness. He may be a new man now and that may be enough to take out Usman again. This actually excited me to see how this goes now

Was affected severely by altitude last time, whilst his opponent wasn't, took every single thing Usman had to offer whilst tired and still won it via clean KO lmfao.Don't be suprised if he wins this one earlier picking Usman apart. I see Usman ending up batterred after this fight giving it his all, but it wont be enough. Edwards takedown defense when not completely exhausted is to good, he is better on the ground and better standing up. Edwards KO or submission in 2nd or 3rd rd in my opinion.

Still feels kinda good to see Leon being champion. For SO LONG.....”I’m next for the title shot”, but he never was over and over again......until it was finally his time.

Since he won the belt, Leon seems very different to me. In a good sense. He opens up to the fans more, shares his thoughts on fighters and the sport. Jokes with the reporters. Almost like winning the belt gave him confidence to reveal more of his personality to the public. Love to see it. Once a champ always a champ. So win or lose tomorrow, he’ll still have that and the fans behind him.

What a diamond gadgie that Leon is mind, hard working, down to earth & skilled with that humbleness where the best thing to come from him winning the title is him getting his Mam’s Jamaican takeaway shop up & running, wish him the best & he’s definitely got to the top by grinding away slowly 👍🏿🥊

I think people are sleeping on Usman's age and that Leon is and should be at his prime. Age is undefeated and this coupled with the psychological effect of being put to sleep could be where Usman starts showing his age. Just look at Tony Ferguson and NIck Diaz. As great as they were they just arn't the same fighters.

8 years? A bit of a stretch there’s context behind those 8 years but like he said you need to grab a hold of something the disrespect he gets he’s underdog even though he has an 8 fight win streak but I get it he has to have an argument to what ppl say about him like usmans opinion about edwards being tired he’s using that as an argument towards his haters too

Usman grinds put a decision or finished Leon by gnp or sub. Leon on the other hand will need another ko. That head kick was there the whole fight, but you have to figure usman is hip to it now. I have to go with Usman in this one.

UK fighters always talk a good game but when they’re in the octagon they get smashed. I want Leon to win but I think Usman will get his belt back. He’s going to make it boring af though. Toe stomps and laying on peoples back is what Usman does when he’s going against a real striker.

Marty's going to turn on the snoozemode and try to go for the hold opponent against the cage and footstomp this time, so be prepared for that kind of fight. Bring a comfortable cushion. Unless Leon gets to prevent it and puts a stop to it again.
