Leon Edwards convinced to finish Nate Diaz at UFC 263
In an interview ahead of UFC 263, Edwards spoke about his next opponent and says he is confident he can defeat Diaz via a finish.
“I need to go out and finish it. They only stopped it once, and that’s all I need. They’ve finalized it. He’s not a robot. He’s not an invincible man. They’ve finished him, and I really think I’ll go out and finish him again, and I can’t wait. My skill set will be too much for him. On the ground, my strength will be too much for him. And I can’t wait to go out there and let him feel that.”
Edwards has already visualized the fight against Nate. Leon is well aware of what he has to do to defeat the younger of the Diaz brothers.
“I can imagine going out there and beating him, and getting the stoppage. I know he’s a tough and tough guy, but I don’t think being tough and tough is enough to beat me. I’ve worked hard and dedicated myself for a long time, and now it’s time for my results to show. I can’t wait to get out there and show it.”
