UFC welterweight competitor Gilbert Burns trashed “coward” Leon Edwards for supposedly declining the Jorge Masvidal battle.
Edwards and Masvidal entered into it a couple of years back at a UFC London occasion, where Masvidal struck Edwards backstage with his “three-piece and a soda” combination. Masvidal ended up being a super star following that event and wound up defending the belt two times versus Kamaru Usman, while Edwards has actually been relatively non-active ever since. It’s now 2 years later on, and these are still 2 of the very best welterweights on earth. With both Edwards and Masvidal presently without an approaching battle, it does make good sense for them to combat each other.
Masvidal just recently stated that the UFC used him the Edwards battle and he accepted it, however according to Masvidal, Edwards turned it down. Talking to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto in a current interview, Burns was inquired about Edwards supposedly turning Masvidal down. Hearing the news, Burns had unfavorable things to state about Edwards, calling him a “coward.”
” I believe statistically it’s a great defend Leon Edwards. And brother, the man hit you with a three-piece and a soda, and you’ve been requesting this defend years. And now this person states yes and you state no? Male, that man’s a freaking coward. The method I remain in Brazil in the street, if I inform my buddies and my coach and my people in Brazil, ‘guy, that person beat me on the street,’ and they run, they break out the battle. Now I get used the battle and I state no? Brother, they’re going to bully me. They’re going to talk a lot sh t,” Burns stated.
Do you concur with the criticism that Gilbert Burns imposed towards Leon Edwards for apparently declining the battle versus Jorge Masvidal? Do you hope this battle takes place?
