Colby can get this work too. Then the title next. Its strap season

In the instant after-effects of Chimaev’s withdrawal due to COVID-19 problems, Edwards made a huge callout of Nate Diaz to take the battle. Diaz struck him with the stiff-arm, however, declining the Brit with a popular Conor McGregor meme (by means of Twitter):

nate your photoshop abilities are as bad as your battle record. and you utilized conor’s line wtf 😂

And lastly, Edwards took objective at his long time competitor, Jorge Masvidal. The set have a vibrant history, with Masvidal infamously punching Edwards backstage after they both made triumphes at a March 2019 occasion in London.

The card Edwards is enthusiastic to still heading in March is nearly precisely 2 years to the day of the occurrence with Masvidal (35-14 Mixed Martial Arts, 12-7 UFC). Nevertheless, Edwards doesn’t appear positive about a resolution (by means of Twitter):

We all understand that bitch Jorge will be no place to be seen when it comes to combating me. 😂

Although the high profile battles seem abundant for Edwards, it stays to be seen who, if anybody, will consent to get in the octagon with him one month from now.
