Leon Edwards To Jorge Masvidal: You’re F***ed Now
In the co-main event at UFC London, Leon Edwards put in a big performance to beat Gunnar Nelson via split decision. Most of the headlines though, were for his confrontation with the main event winner, Jorge Masvidal. Edwards approached his fellow welterweight Masvidal, backstage while he was giving an interview, which resulted in punches being thrown and Edwards suffering a cut to the face. You can watch the incident and see what Masvidal had to say about he incident, here.
Edwards has now taken to Instagram to make a statement on the night, in which he sent a message to Masvidal.
It would appear that Edwards vs Masvidal is the fight to make next. And not just because of the scuffle backstage in London. With both men winning this weekend, the fight makes sense from a fight point of view as well. In one of the most stacked divisions in the UFC, the fight would put the winner on the verge of a title shot. The backstage scuffle would just add a little spice to proceedings.
Do you think this is the fight the UFC needs to make next?
