Morning Report: Leon Edwards Calls Chimaev’s Punks vs. Nate Diaz ‘f ***** up,’ Diaz’ ​​Roots ‘Get It Done’

Leon Edwards isn’t on board with the idea of ​​matching Chimaev’s punch against Nate Diaz.

Weeks after Edwards secured his long-awaited redemption chance and the 170-pound title on August 20 in Salt Lake City, Utah, he will battle his last opponent, Diaz, in the octagon for the last time. The promotion announced last week that it will be Diaz against one of the highest-rated contenders in the welterweight class at Chemayev at UFC 279 on September 10.

Mixed reactions in response to conformity followed, sparking interest in many in the community, but at the same time the impression that there were better options available for each. Unbeaten Chimaev climbed 11-0 through the ranks at record speeds and arguably could have waited for his shot for the winner by tilting Edwards’ title against champion, Kamaru Usman. Instead, he will look to hand Diaz his third straight defeat, making him 1-4 in his last five games.

“If I had to put money on it, I would probably go to Khamzat but I’d love for Nate to get it done,” Edwards told the media backstage at UFC London (h/r TheMacLife). “He’s done so much for the company and I wish they’d give him a veteran, a nice fight to bow to. To give a rookie guy who’s had four or five fights in the UFC, and a wrestler guy too—I think they’re having sex. They should’ve fought it better. But I’d love to get it done.” Nate. But like I said, if I was a betting guy, I’d probably go with dimples.”

Edwards and Diaz met in a five-way no-title match in June 2021 at UFC 263. Edwards dominated the 24 minutes of the competition, coming up with a clean punch in the last moments, giving Diaz the opportunity to score at all times upset. Unfortunately for Best of Stockton, Edwards managed to survive and earn the nod of the unanimous decision.

Diaz’s assumption in his post-UFC life is that he’ll get into the world of boxing likely to have a match with Jake Paul. If it ends up coming to fruition, Diaz has full support in the form of his latest successor.

“You can’t love Nate,” Edwards said. “And he is who he is. I watched this guy come in at the age of 16 or 17 when I was entering MMA. I wish him well in his career and everything he would like to do next. [Boxing] Jake Paul or wherever he decides to go.”
