Gilbert Burns has once again called out Leon Edwards to fight this year — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Gilbert Burns calls out Leon Edwards on social media
Gilbert Burns and Leon Edwards are both probably in the most difficult position in the UFC welterweight rankings.
Edwards is on a crazy win streak and is yet to receive a title shot and Burns, although he recently was defeated Kamaru Usman he did perform relatively well during the fight and since has got an impressive win over the always dangerous Stephen Thompson.
With both fighters being forced to wait for the outcome of the rematch between Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington 2, it would make perfect sense to make Edwards vs Burns next.
Burns agrees with that and has called out Edwards very aggressively on Twitter.
Check out Burns' Tweet below.
“Your best win is Nate Diaz who is unranked and the last time he beat a true WW is….NEVER, you are on a 9 fight win streak and nobody gives a shit about you. I’ve beat legends in Woodley, Maia and WB…come get this smoke…BRUMMIE CUNT” pic.twitter.com/l1xAl6Lcds— GILBERT BURNS DURINHO (@GilbertDurinho) August 9, 2021
Burns said "your best win is Nate Diaz who is unranked and the last time he beat a true WW is... NEVER."
Edwards then responded by saying when he called out Burns last year he declined to fight him.
Do you think that Edwards vs Burns will happen?
