Rafael dos Anjos Confirms Leon Edwards Bout With Zinger of a Tweet
Leon Edwards recently claimed Rafael dos Anjos was ducking him, and the former lightweight champ had quite the response.
Yahoo Sport’s David Iole recently relayed that RDA and Edwards have agreed to battle at the UFC’s upcoming card in San Antonio. The news came not long after Edwards claimed that RDA had turned down the opportunity to fight him in August, and after he took a verbal shot at dos Anjos and other top welterweights.
Well, as you can see by the tweet below, RDA definitely took notice of Edwards initial tweet.
I guess you’re wrong son, see you in July https://t.co/eipGFq37fQ

Tweets aside, this is a very interesting and compelling fight. Edwards has been rising up the welterweight ranks thanks to a seven fight winning streak. RDA, meanwhile, demonstrated last month that his days as a top 170’er are far from over, by submitting Kevin Lee.
Here’s the line-up so far for UFC San Antonio (via MMA Mania).
