Leon Edwards Wants To Fight “Racist Scumbag” Colby Covington

Former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington just picked up a victory at UFC Vegas 11 and a new opponent already wants a piece of him, with that person being Leon Edwards.

Edwards has taken to Twitter to call out Covington, whom Edwards refers to as a “racist scumbag:”

Covington did have words for both UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal after UFC Vegas 11, but he didn’t mention Edwards as a possible opponent.

With Usman defending the welterweight gold against Gilbert Burns at UFC 256 and Masvidal potentially fighting Nate Diaz early next year, it is possible that Edwards will get his chance to fight the “racist scumbag.”
