Man, Leon Edwards can’t catch a break! He can’t land the title shot he has earned, he can’t get another guy in the top 5 to face him, and now after accepting a high-risk fight against a lower-ranked up-and-comer the fight gets cancelled. Throw this man a bone!

Second time it's been cancelled. Edwards pulled out of the December 19th fight with the bug

LOL Edwards has not earned a title shot mate. Dude hasn't even fought in two years and only has one win against a current top 16 guy, the 11th ranked Luque.

I disagree.
8 fight win streak over all quality opponents including a former champ in RDA and dangerous Luque.
Last fought less than a year and a half ago, but not,for lack of trying, as he’s had his fight postponed twice.
Burns is obviously first in line. Colby and Masvidal both just lost handily to Usman in their last fight. Who else would you give it to? Wonderboy has only a 2 fight win streak but was 1-3 prior to that and has no real claim to being next. Woolley, Maia, Chiesa, Magny, Luque? No across the board. Edwards may not be the most flashy option, but he is certainly first after Burns by merit.

Bear in mind, he was also the maker of the thread explaining why Yoel deserved a title shot even though he was on a 2 fight losing streak.

RDA was a former champ...of a different weight class. And was passed his prime.

I would give the shot to someone who has at least beaten someone in the top 10 (and no, Luque is not top 10 - he is the 11th ranked fighter in the division including the champ).

Your argument is silly. A fighters hasn't earned a title shot by beating unranked fighters and sitting on the bench. That's the opposite of 'earned'.

The only other viable option was Cannonier, and it has since been well established that he had no business stepping in the ring with Izzy. Those of us saying Romero was the best fight available for Izzzy were proven correct, seeing as many people scored the fight for Romero.

And of course, we are talking about a guy coming off razor close losses to the best in the division vs a guy who hasn't even fought the best in the division. So only a jetboat ownered person would think using my argument for why Romero deserved a shot at Izzy in any way undermines the argument for why Edwards doesn't deserve a shot.

So,they just cancel the main event and don`t offer up another fight? I would be pissed off if I bought tickets.

Two fun facts:

Leon Edwards has fought as many times in the UFC in the last 18 months as I have.

The best fighter Khamzat Chimaev has ever beaten is Gerald Meerschaert who has now lost 5 of his last 7 fights.

And yet cunts are clamoring for this random fight like their lives depend on it.
