Edwards is currently 5-0-0 as a professional MMA fighter, with those wins coming over Rafal Cejrowski, Aaron Kennedy, Louis King, Kent Kauppinen and Claudio Conti. Edwards has competed in the promotion once, before, defeating the aforementioned Cejrowski by first round knockout at Bellator 179.
There is no word yet on when Edwards will step back into the Bellator cage or whom that opponent could be.
