    The way Leon set up that head kick was masterful. Switches stance, feints a kick a couple of times to gauge Usman's reaction mixed in with a couple of jabs and a low kick. See's Usman isn't concerned about a high kick and WHAM lights out. That has to be a blueprint for a head kick.

      ​@Guillee The first fight is arguable. One thing that many don't take into account is kickboxing scoring is different than MMA scoring. Izzy did outland him, but Pereira was always on the aggression, putting pressure and just being a ring general. And since he didn't take that much visible damage, there was less of a chance for Izzy to win the decision, but it was not impossible. The point stands, Pereira won. In the second fight, Izzy was definitely winning, doesn't matter when you get sent to the Shadow Realm. And in the third, same thing. You can be winning four rounds, and if Pereira knocks you out, that's it.

    It’s one thing that we even had three fifth round title finishes, but even wilder that in all three instances, the winning fighter was down going into the fifth and was the challenger. Add to that the fact that at least in the case of Izzy and Usman they didn’t need to win the last round and they would retain and were some of the top P4P, and this year has had some of the most insane title changes the promotion has ever seen in one year. There’s been some unfortunate ends in main events this year but also some incredible ones.

    I was amazed by this fight. Seemed the challenger was poised to handle Usman's worst the entire fight. Like he was on a completely different level and it all started with the initial takedown and full mount. The smack he gave Usman as he got up. Edwards has completely disrupted that weight division.
    Adesania was taken out by an assassin who just hunted him down the entire fight.

    Connors recent tweet summed up Leon's win perfectly tbh. It was the EVERYTHING of the year. The timing of the commentary, the dominance of the champion, the record for undefeated streak on the line, the corner advice at the end of r4, the literal last minute head kick ko of a fight that he was about to lose, the post fight interview, the backstage footage of him on a call to his mum........Holy shit. It just doesn't get better.

    The Izzy stoppage MIGHT have been a LITTLE early. But it really played out in Izzy's favor. Had the ref allowed the fight to go on Izzy MAYBE would have recovered..
    But I think there was a bigger chance of Alex Pereira landing 2-3 clean shots and possibly knocking Izzy out cold.. Then Izzy wouldn't be getting an immediate rematch. The ref really did save him from his worst nightmare.

      @Nights Timo is Usman likely to fall for the same type of thing and will Leon beat him in a rematch if he doesn’t GREATLY improve his wrestling? No, but saying it was all luck (which makes YOU the casual fanboy) diminishes the hard work, both mentally and physically, done by someone you couldn’t hold a candle to.

    • Troy McAllister
      Troy McAllister 3 ай бұрын

      @Nights Timo the whole reason any competitive activity that is judged has scoring and especially a time limit is that the competitors are tasked with figuring out how to strategically be in the lead by the time points or time have expired, or by flat out elimination like a KO, and the whole reason a match isn’t just automatically considered concluded if one party is seemingly dominating the other (aside from things like run rule in little league) is because a PART of said strategy may very well include things like being strong-willed, weathering the storm of a flurry from an opponent, lulling them to sleep (so to speak) and drawing them into a trap, like having them think they’ve worn you out too much and having them believe they can coast to the end, then feinting to get a desired reaction out of them so you can pounce. That is precisely what Leon did. YOU cope

And then to see him as the first person in the cage to lift and congratulate Pereira on his last round title win, just amazing. So glad he's gonna be able to fight for the "vacant" 205 belt in Brazil. Crazy, and unfortunate Ank and Jan fought to a draw, but he deserves this next chance for real....

    You can tell watching Edwards Usman 2 that Edwards was not trying to spend unnecessary energy early in that fight. Watching the way he paced himself and played defense you could tell that his goal was to drag Usman into deep water. Even when his coaches gotten his face he kind of ignored them and didn't say anything because in his mind he was like "man, you don't even know what the f*** I'm doing right now.. do you coach??"
