Ultimate Fight Championship, between Nate Diaz Vs Leon Edwards On 13-Jun-2021, 07:00 AM at Gila River Arena USA
On June 12, Edwards faced Nate Diaz in the first ever non-title, non-main event five round UFC fight (UFC 263). Edwards outclassed Diaz on the feet and on the mat for four rounds before being stunned by a Stockton slap, straight left combo from Diaz late in the fifth round. Edwards was wobbling on his feet momentarily while Diaz pointed at him and taunted him. Diaz’s lack of urgency and Edwards’ recovery allowed him to survive this scare and pick up a 49-46 unanimous decision win from all three judges.
