Hey I am not a Colby fan or something but I wanna be honest. I remember during 2020 when he was turning down fights to the point they were gonna drop him from the rankings if he did not fight khamzat. Also Colby has fought 3 times since Leon fought so I don't think he has the right to act entitled at all. Also if people say he has not fought in a while because of the khamzat fight being remade not really, that fight was originally for December.

Colbys egos betrayed him. The moment he saw Usman call out masividal, he should have seen he only has one fight that makes sense and that’s Leon. Him playing villain denying Leon didn’t hurt anyone but himself. Maybe he can fight wonderboy now. Lol He doesn’t have many choices aside that or wait a year.

Fair play, Leon. We have all had a tough time these last 12 months, but just think if Leon had beaten Tyron (which I suspect he would have) he would have had the biggest paying fight of his career for a title. Instead he earned 0£ from fighting and has to start again.

I feel for Leon, he always seems to be in wrong place at wrong time and I also think UK fighters get a back burner position if they aren't calling out people on socials constantly. He's only got to beat either, Coby, masvidal or burns now and he's title shot. All names mentioned are his equal.

Too many fighters want to protect their precious rankings by ducking fighters such as Leon. Much respect to him for accepting a lower ranked opponent as that is a risk few other fighters are willing to take. He is capable of matching up against any other top 5 fighter in the division and then getting the title shot he deserves but he is showing more desire to compete than many others. Best wishes for the next fight! P.s I love the way he says Khamzat Kaz-Matt 😂

Could have taken the Wonderboy fight when it was initially on the table last year though, hindsight is 20/20 but surely that would have made more sense than Khamzat or Belal. Leon didn't take the Usman fight on short notice because he wanted a full camp, but now criticizes Colby for basically the same thing. I feel sympathy for the way the Tyron fight got cancelled, but outside of that some of this has been a result of Leon holding out for the perfect fight for too long. It's good to finally see him back though, he can spice the top of the division with a decisive win over Belal, but if it's a close decision his position won't improve that much.

Are people forgetting that Leon was ducking everyone as well? He flat out refused Wonderboy a couple of months ago. He only took Chimaev because he was forced out of the rankings, that threat probably applies for Belal too.
