“If I had to put money on it, I’d probably go Khamzat (Chimaev) but I’d love Nate (Diaz) to get it done,” Leon Edwards told assembled media at UFC London last weekend. “He’s (Nate Diaz) done so much for the company and I wish they (the UFC) gave him a veteran, a nice fight to bow out to.”

“To give an up-and-coming guy that’s had four or five fights in the UFC, and a wrestler guy as well – I think they’ve f*cked up,” Leon Edwards explained. “They should’ve gave him a better fight, but I would love Nate to get it done. As I said, if I’m a betting man, I’d probably go with Khamzat (to win).” 

This comes at a time where Nate is about to become a free agent as his is the last fight left on his current deal.
