Representative Khamzat Chimaev confirmed that “Gray Wolf” needs to recover from COVID-19 infection, at the same time, Leon Edwards is also urging other opponents to go to the radio.
Khamzat Chimaev vs. Leon Edward is one of the 3 most anticipated battles in January coming with Holloway vs. Holloway. Kattar and Poirier vs. McGregor 2. Yet last night, this matchup continued to be canceled for the second time without knowing the reason.
Not long after that, Combate magazine had information that Khamzat was positive for COVID-19. The manager of the Chechen original puncher also confirmed, “Gray wolf” requires post-COVID pulmonary rehabilitation time.

On the side of Leon Edward, the Jamaican-born puncher sent a question, promising to confront his colleague in the future. But at the same time, he still wanted to continue the fight at Fight Island 8.
After that incident, the UFC immediately proposed an alternative to Kevin Holland vs. Kevin Holland. Derek Brunson with no less charm. However, Leon still wished to continue fighting and he called out the name of a fighter in Welterweight 4th place – Jorge “Gamebred” Masidal.
Leon Edwards immediately asked Jorge Masvidal to respond to the challenge
This is a very sensible battle to take place at the moment. Third place puncher Leon Edward has had many consecutive victories in recent years and is one of the candidates targeting the championship belt, while Jorge Masvidal – who is ranked 4th is a boxer with enough reputation. is attractive and currently holds the BMF belt.
Not only that, in early 2019, Leon Edwards and Jorge Masvidal once fought each other after the UFC London event, this is also the reason why the British boxer wanted to count with his attacker.
Recently, though, “Gamebird” has been very quiet. Before the call from Stephen Thompson or even a few “kick” from Colby Covington in the past, Jorge Masvidal still has not had an official statement for his upcoming match, so with a surprise call for a vacant position, do you notice it?
How the main battle of UFC Fight Night 185 will take place is still a big question mark and let’s wait for the latest information from the boxers.
