We want to know who has advantages where and which fighter’s unique attributes could sway the battle their way. Nate Diaz versus Leon Edwards at UFC 263 is no different. However, as a special attraction five-round fight between one of the best welterweights in the world and as popular a fighter as the Ultimate Fighting Championship has ever had, this booking certainly has serious relevancy.

Mixed martial arts luminaries like UFC hall-of-famer, and former light heavyweight champion, Chuck Liddell. Two-time Professional Fighters League featherweight champion Lance Palmer. And active UFC welterweight and fast-rising head coach James Krause. All three had much to offer on the deciding factors in ‘Nate Diaz vs Leon Edwards.’
