Jorge Masvidal Savagely Rips Leon Edwards Following His Victory Over Nate Diaz

Jorge Masvidal has savagely mocked Leon Edwards following his victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 263.

The British fighter, who's unbeaten in his last 10 Octagon outings, pieced up Diaz, winning a lopsided, unanimous decision.

But his victory failed to impress Masvidal who pulled no punches in a scathing attack as he eyes a return to action in October or November.

On his return, he said: "Whoever's in the top five available November or October, that's who's head I'm coming after."

Asked about Edwards' win over Diaz, he replied: "It was a good fight, good performance, I thought.

"Leon does what he does and he keeps asking for more money and more things, but he's not a finisher. He's not a fighter.

"He was winning happily and he wasn't willing to put himself in a risk to go out there and get those finishes.

"That's why I don't think he's in the position that he wants to be in, because he's not going out and fighting every second of every minute.

"So he's a very skilled guy, but he just doesn't have that grit and that meanness in him to go out there and beat up a top contender the way he should."

Despite his ruthless review, Masvidal appeared interested in facing Edwards - a shortlist that also included Nate and Nick Diaz.

'Gamebred' continued: "All of the above. Whoever's available October or November when I'm coming back, that's who's head I'm taking off. Whoever it is."

Masvidal is currently on a two-fight losing skid having lost a pair of fights to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

He hasn't won a fight since beating Nate Diaz at UFC 244 back in November 2019.
