Thompson challenged Edwards

Stephen Thompson, UFC welterweight, responded to the news that the promotion's champion in this division Leon Edwards plans to move up in weight after his fight with Colby Covington.

“There is me, there is Shavkat, there is Ian Harry, who is invincible and is advancing rapidly. There are plenty of other guys to fight at welterweight. Bro, what are you doing? I think that today he is just looking for a money fight, that’s why he says that. However, I think he started it too early. “I’m going to call Leon out and I’m going to tell everyone: ‘UFC, I’m coming for Leon!’” the fighter said.

Let us remind you that the confrontation between Edwards and Covington will take place on December 16 and will headline UFC 296.
