Undoubtedly, Khamzat Chimaev is putting a lot of fear in the whole UFC, so now Leon edwards wants it. After a spicy crossing and saying that he would have no problems fighting the Swede, the American left a clear message for Dana White. The President of the company is delighted with the undefeated, so the American assured that he will end him forever.
“Outside of a title shot, I think it’s the biggest fight. Obviously Jorge Masvidal would have been fine too, but he turned down the fight. This is the biggest fight to guarantee me what’s next. That was my thinking when addressing this. The UFC loves him. Dana White loves it. Everyone thinks it can’t be beat. When I go out and remove it, I don’t see what they can say next to give me my title shot, “he said at first.
Lion He trusts himself, which is why he said: “I’d be on a nine-game winning streak. I think this was the fight to do and now here we are. The guy is special. I’ve been in this game my whole life, I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m telling you the guy is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. Special. I know the UFC is probably banked, Dana anyway, I know he’s praying for this guy to win, but I’ll be too much for him there, I’m telling you. “
“They have done this before with other fighters. They’d get one, two good career wins and the UFC pushed them straight to the top, and then they beat them. Just like in boxing, if you’re a good prospect, they build you up slowly, make you learn the tricks of the trade, and get you through adversity. They have done it with many other fighters you can name. It has not worked. This is more motivation for me, ”the American also explained.
Knowing that the fans want this crossover, Leon edwars He mentioned: “I understand that it is a business. I understand that you are trying to invest in this child. I use this as motivation to show you one more time why I’m on an eight-game winning streak and why I think I’m the best in the world. I don’t really examine it too much. I just use it for motivation. Put it on my back and keep working. Keep moving forward with what I want to achieve and that is to be a world champion.
