Leon Edwards and Jorge Masvidal have unfinished business with one another. The pair engaged in a melee back at UFC London earlier this year.
Although many believed they’d be fighting each other next, especially given each man won their respective fight that night, the UFC decided to go in a different direction. Masvidal takes on Ben Askren this weekend (Sat. July 6, 2019) at UFC 239 on pay-per-view (PPV). Also, Edwards will headline UFC San Antonio against Rafael dos Anjos.
“That fight will 100% happen even in the cage or when I see him at the streets,” Edwards said. “So that fight will 100 percent happen. That needs to happen.”
In regards to who he sees coming out on top between Masvidal and Askren, Edwards picked “Funky” to leave with the win:
“Ben is a weird one, he’s (expletive) but he finds a way to win,” Edwards said. “It’s a weird one but I’ll probably edge Ben for outgrappling him.”
What do you think about Edwards wanting to get his hands on Masvidal by any means necessary?
