UFC 263: Nate Diaz vs Leon Edwards

Nate Diaz is one of the most prominent fighters in the promotion. And when he enters the ring, it is a bloodbath. The Stockton gangster dominates his opponent inside the cage with his aggressive fighting style. Though he has been away for a while, his legend is still intact. On his return, he will look to beat the Jamaican-British fighter Leon Edwards.

Considering his ability to land heavy takedowns, ‘Rocky’ will be a tough competitor for Diaz. He has a nine-fight unbeaten streak and is yet to fight for the title. Hence, he too, like his opponent who has never held UFC gold, will be hungry.
