Fear?  Leon Edwards refuses to fight Khamzat Chimaev: "Beat a Top 25 first"

Without hesitation, Khamzat Chimaev is putting a lot of fear in the whole UFC, so now Leon edwards left some controversy. After a spicy crossing and saying that he would have no problem fighting the Swede, the American says he is not interested in climbing into the cage with him. This would be so for a special issue, since the sensation fighter of the moment has not fought with a top 25 or less to this day.

Obviously No. 1 is the champion Kamaru Usman. Give me the No. 1 contender, and then the winner will have a title shot between Jorge Masvidal and now Colby Covington. I’m ready to go. These guys are putting all the excuses in the book for why not fight the world No. 3. It’s weird for me. I’m ready to go. Everyone is going crazy, but I’m here. I’m ready, “began the American, who wants to take the title from the Nigerian.

For its part, Lion he assures that he wants to go for everything, and for this he only has to climb places in the ranking. As for Wonderboy, he got knocked out one fight ago. Anthony Pettis knocked him out. If I go out right now and fight Wonderboy and beat him, the UFC will be like ‘let’s go one more top five and then we’ll go for a title.’ They wouldn’t give me a title shot right away. For me, to get the world title, which is my goal and my dream, is to beat one of those first four guys, “he said.

Will faces meet at some point?

“Talking about ChimaevHave you only ever had one welterweight fight against a lightweight guy? ”He highlighted about the Swede. Edwards also made it clear that it is not easy to analyze Khamzat. “It’s hard to judge from that. When she calls me, I don’t really pay attention to her. It is what it is. I don’t really pay too much attention. He has a great talent, but for now he does not drive me crazy, “he dictated, so many intimidated him for being” afraid.

Closing with his words, Leon edwards gave the key to face Khamzat Chimaev. If the Swede wants it to happen, here’s what should happen: “He has to at least beat someone in the damn top 25 before he goes straight to the damn fight No. 3. At least he fights someone in the top 25 or 30 first and then come to me. So we can go and start talking from there, but the MMA community is literally if you feed them something, they will accept it. It is what it is”.
