The undefeated UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has taken his upcoming opponent Leon Edwards down memory lane, reminding the Brit of a flashpoint he had with a fellow fighter back in 2020.
After UFC Fight night 147, Edwards and Masvidal got into an altercation, which led to the Gamebred fighter throwing punches at Edwards. At the time, Masvidal was being interviewed after securing a knockout against Darren Till when Edwards approached him and began to taunt him and ask him for a fight.
In typical erratic Masvidal fashion, he descended on Edwards and hit him with what he later described as a ‘three-piece with the soda’. Edwards chose not to press charges, but that encounter still rings a bell in both fighters’ minds.
