Leon Edwards Calls Out Jorge Masvidal

Jorge Masvidal might have his next opponent lined up should he be interested in fighting Leon Edwards. 

Edwards called for a fight with Masvidal on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon. He wrote in the caption, “Let’s make it happen, it’s the only fight that make sense for me outside the championship.”

This is not the first time Edwards has called out Masvidal of late. They also have history. 

Edwards andMasvidal were involved in a backstage skirmish last year at a UFC event in London. The two men are both ranked in the welterweight top-5.

Edwards has not fought since July of 2019 when he scored a win over former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. On the flip side, Masvidal last fought at UFC 251 in July when he lost to reigning welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
