Welterweight Jorge Masvidal takes on Gilbert Burns at UFC 287 in April. According to experts, the winner of this fight can become a contender for the title fight.
Briton Leon Edwards is now the division champion, who has a serious conflict with Masvidal.
In 2019, during the London tournament, Masvidal approached Edwards in the box under the stands and unexpectedly landed several blows.
However, the British fighter is ready to forget that quarrel and agree to fight with himself. But this will be on one condition.
“If Masvidal beats Gilbert, personal feelings will be discarded, sports and business will come first. Then I will agree to fight him,” said the athlete.
True, Edwards himself has yet to rematch with Kamaru Usman at UFC 286 in London on March 18.
