    “That fight has to happen, definitely that fight needs to happen,” Leon Ewards said. “It’s either that next or I feel I deserve a top-5 opponent next, if not the world title shot. There’s not many men doing what I’m doing and beating the guys I’m beating at this level. I want to get that man [Masvidal] in the cage, but that’s just for fun; my aim is to be a world champion. So whatever gets me closer to the world title, that’s what is next for me.”

    . . .

    “That’s just facts. I don’t need to put on a persona. I’m talking facts. It’s not trash talk. This fight [with Masvidal] has to happen. If I see him on the street, it’s going to happen or it’s going to happen in the cage. But either way, we are fighting, no matter what, we are fighting on sight.

    "They [UFC] needs to make this fight happen just to kill the animosity a little bit. Either way we are fighting, so they might as well make it in the cage.”

    . . .

    “Backstage he threw a few sneaky shots and then security separated us straight away. He’s trying to make himself sound bigger than what he is, but like I said, his day will come. We will see who the real man is then.”

    . . .

    “I didn’t get to touch the man because security got involved so quick. That’s one of the worst things. He did what he did, and then security took him away. I didn’t get to at least get one shot in. That’s what pissed me off. That’s why I need to get the fight next or after a title shot.”

    I can understand if hes mad but he will eventually get a chance to get his revenge on Masvidal. If Leon gets ranked high he can call out Masvidal and they will fight if Masvidal doesnt wana fight him now.

    Edwards beats Masvidal where ever it goes
    Mas has a better shot vs one dimensional Askren

    This will end up being the highlight of Edward’s career.

    Maybe but I don't think I'll ever bet against Mas again. He hurt me bad that night. Real bad.

    Cheap shot? That was def no cheap shot. But yes, it did get broken up by security, and Edward's did his best to act like he wanted the security to let him go, while he went from being loud and talkative, to completely silent within seconds.

    Real question is.. what Has Edward's done to to think he deserves an actual title shot? And if he says the fight will happen on sight, then why act like he wants it in the cage, being they would have to see each other prior to the fight. Kid is delusional it appears.

    Punching someone who isn’t ready for a fight is a cheap shot. Yes. Of course.

    Mas knew he was safe and security would not let him get stomped by Leon and his team.

    I think he does need to fight Masvidal next time he sees him.
    I also thinks he loses any street fight against Masvidal, his best bet is to try to get Masvidal in the cage.

    I respect him keeping it real. Honestly, I surprised more fighters don’t have this mentality. You hit me in the face backstage after a little trash talk - it’s going down. I’m with Leon.

    The one thing I don’t agree with is that he deserves a TS.
