Stephen Thompson Calls Out Leon Edwards, Gets Called Out By Khamzat Chimaev

Stephen Thompson called out Leon Edwards earlier today on Twitter, but he wound up on the other side of a call out, courtesy of Khamzat Chimaev.

Everything began when Thompson, who was making his first call out ever, called out Edwards on Twitter:

“All due respect @Leon_edwardsmma, which I have a lot of for you, I have been saying I would like to fight you for a while now!” Thompson posted. “It makes sense and would be a great match up. I think that was my first Twitter call out ever. man that felt weird. #FirstTimeForEverything”

Before Edwards even replied to the call out from Edwards, Chimaev would shoot his shot and call out Thompson on Twitter:

“We fighting next. Let’s go, leave Leon alone.”

Thompson has yet to respond to Chimaev, who is 3-0-0 under the UFC banner and is coming off of a one punch knockout win over Gerald Meerschaert at UFC Vegas 11.
