Speaking to Mirror Fighting he said: “I definitely think he can win and I definitely think he is going to win.”
“I think that Leon is just a slick operator, he fights with his brain which is great. I think that Leon is just going to outsmart him, he might get taken down a few times in the fight because Colby is a great wrestler.”
“Leon is going to make him walk into something, he will set traps as he does and will catch him before the five rounds is up and finish him.”
