Video: Can Leon Edwards afford to wait for Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington winner?
Edwards (19-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC), the British UFC welterweight contender, is unbeaten over his past 10 fights. That includes a performance that – sans a final-minute scare – saw him dominate one of the most popular fighters in UFC history.
Somehow, though, it still doesn’t seem he’s guaranteed for the next title shot. In fact, UFC president Dana White said as much at the UFC 263 post-fight press conference, confirming once again that a rematch between Colby Covington and 170-pound champ Kamaru Usman is on deck.
So where does that leave Edwards? Does he sit out and wait in hopes no one jumps him in line for the Usman vs. Covington winner? Does he chase a grudge match with Jorge Masvidal?
All these options and more were discussed in the latest episode of “Spinning Back Clique,” hosted by George Garcia with panelists Nolan King, Mike Bohn and Brian Garcia.
