UFC contender Leon Edwards has branded Jorge Masvidal a "p**sy" and slammed the proposed BMF rematch.
Dana White (@danawhite) confirms UFC targeting Jorge Masvidal (@GamebredFighter) vs. Nate Diaz (@NateDiaz209) rematch. No deal for that one yet. First reported by @TMZ, for 12/12. That date still needs to be worked out. January also a possibility, per sources.

Masvidal vs. Diaz 2 has received mixed reactions with welterweight star Edwards pulling no punches on the "joke" of a bout.
He also described it as "two journey men" going at it again in a furious tweet.
"Could have fought number 3, yet chose to fight number 12," he said in a post on Twitter.
He added: "Eventually this p**sy will fight me, I'm all for money fights but watching two journey men go at it again when it wasn't even competitive is a joke.
"And this is the BMF."
Could have fought number 3, yet chose to fight number 12. Eventually this pussy will fight me, I'm all for money fights but watching two journey men go at it again when it wasn't even competitive is a joke. And this is the "BMF" :joy:

Preliminary discussions have started for the fight with interest from the UFC on running it back.
But Edwards isn't happy as he's still without an opponent following the cancellation of his bout in March.
He was supposed to meet former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in the main-event of UFC London.
Though the fight, and card, was scrapped due to COVID-19.
The Birmingham fighter, meanwhile, is on an eight-fight winning streak which includes victories over Donald Cerrone, Gunnar Nelson and Rafael dos Anjos.
The No.3 ranked UFC welterweight will have to wait a little longer before getting his hands on Masvidal.
