UFC Welterweight Leon Edwards Offered Some Strong Words For Jorge Masvidal After Backstage Brawl
Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards made headlines last night (Sat, March 16, 2019) with a backstage altercation at UFC London. “Gamebred” who picked up a spectacular KO win over Darren Till in the main headline, but after his scintillating victory he broke his post-fight interview and got physical with Leon Edwards, who was also emerged victorious via a split-decision win over Gunnar Nelson in the co-main event.
Edwards suffered a severe facial laceration during a melee, but he seems doesn’t bother about this whole thing as he won’t press charges against Masvidal.
Masvidal already gave his side of the story why he trades punches with ‘hooligan’ Edwards.
Earlier on Sunday, Edwards took to Instagram and offered some strong words to Masvidal.
“Jorge, fair play sneaking your shots in when you could, but now you’re f-cked,” Edwards wrote. “If security wasn’t there you wouldn’t have made it back to the U.S., I’ll see you soon.”
Edwards sure does deserve a big fight as he picked up the seventh straight win in the UFC last night. Masvidal might fit well as he also scores the biggest win of his career. After last night’s altercation, this feud seems far from done deal.

”Very happy with my performance last night against a very high caliber opponent in Gunnar Nelson,” he wrote on Instagram. “Much respect to you Gunnar that was a great fight and look forward to seeing you bounce back. Thanks to my team, friends, family and the fans for everything. Birmingham stand up! As I said – that’s 7 in a row in the hardest division in the sport and I’m coming for everyone. World champ 2019 mark my words. If you’re not with me now, you will be.”
