Leon Edwards hasn’t competed since July of 2019 and the lack of Octagon time has finally caught up to the fighter because the UFC decided to move him out of the rankings, which led to an exchange with Khamzat Chimaev on Twitter.
Edwards took to Twitter to not only deny he was removed from the rankings and also challenge Chimaev to a fight:
I'm still in the rankings. Fuck all the inactivity, the only reason I havent fought is because all these so called top guys turned me down.— Leon 'Rocky' Edwards (@Leon_edwardsmma) October 22, 2020
Khamzat want to fight then?
Chimaev would respond with the following on Twitter:
“I’m always ready to fight. Let’s go. Rock'n'roll baby.”
