Leon Edwards doesn’t plan on competing in London for his next fight.
The UFC is slated to return to London in July, but welterweight champ Edwards says it’s too quick of a turnaround for him to make after he retained his title against Kamaru Usman in their trilogy bout at UFC 286 in March.
Instead, Edwards (21-3 MMA, 13-2 UFC) is eyeing the UFC 294 card Oct. 22 in Abu Dhabi.
“Unless it comes with some stupid money, then I might consider (London),” Edwards told Sky Sports. “The bag always talks. Come with some stupid money, and I might consider it. I fought under a month ago, so I’ve still got stuff I’ve got to do first. Literally next week, I would have to be back in camp. August to March, I did that already. Now they’re saying March to July (camp for the next one). I don’t think it makes sense.
Is Leon turning into the next UFC Diva?
