He has fought against big names but that headliner fight from him has never really come for one reason or the other. It could probably that he doesn’t really excite people that much considering 9 of his 13 UFC fights have gone to decision.
And he has finished his opponent just thrice in that time at the promotion. He also has no fight of the night or performance of the night awards to show, but he is a sturdy fighter who pragmatically approaches each fight and manages to get the job done each time.
For a fighter that hasn’t had any notably big payouts, Leon Edwards has amassed a net worth of a massive $4million in that time. This, of course, is primarily due to Edward’s exploits inside the UFC octagon.
His last fight, against Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night 187, saw him take home $80,000. His highest payout came in his bout against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC on ESPN 4 when his win against the Brazilian saw him earn $118,000.
His total career earnings in MMA is just a shade above $800,000. These figures included post-fight bonuses, sponsorship bonus, payout on appearance, win bonus, etc.
Edwards has a very impressive professional MMA record of 18-3-0 (1 NC) and UFC record of 10-2-0 (1 NC) since his debut some 6 and a years back.
Edwards is currently on an unstoppable streak. Disregarding his no-contest bout against Belal Muhammad, The British-Jamaican MMA fighter has won 8 fights on the trot. His victims include stalwarts such as RDA, Gunnar Nelson, and Donald Cerrone.
His first UFC loss came on his debut in 2014 against Claudio Silva, and his only other loss in the promotion is against the undisputed welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, when he lost to him on decision at UFC on Fox 17.
His last fight ended in a no-contest after he inadvertently poked his opponent, Belal Muhammad, in their welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night 187. The fight was stopped in the 2nd round due to an eye poke.
Leon Edwards lives a private life when it comes to his family. There are no reports in the media about his possible wife or girlfriends. He, however, is the father of a 7-year-old named Jason.
Jason’s mother’s name is unknown and Edwards privacy in familial matters on his social media accounts should be respected in this regard. He does have a brother, Fabian, who fights in Bellator MMA.
Leon is nicknamed ‘Rocky’ which was supposedly given to him by a friend of his. It is possibly after the ‘Rocky’ movies starring Sylvester Stallone as a boxer.
As for Leon Edwards and his endorsements, there is no information available about which companies associate with him and sponsor him.
Edwards’ next fight comes against Nate Diaz in a welterweight bout at UFC 262. This will be the first five-round non-title co-main event in the history of the promotion.
Diaz has spoken about his intentions of fighting at both 155 and 170 and it seems that he is gone with the latter in order to make a push in that division once again.
‘The Stockton Slugger’ is on the back of a defeat against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 and would be looking to get back on track with a win against Edwards. But Rocky won’t be a walkover for him.
