Leon Edwards doesn’t agree with Chael Sonnnen’s criticism.
Sonnen recently came out and explained Edwards does everything ideal inside of the Octagon but doesn’t do anything at all ideal outside the cage.
“You want to have a title combat or a huge fight, the first point you have to be is attention-grabbing,” Sonnen mentioned on Ariel and the Negative Person. “Both of people guys are fantastic fighters, but they don’t deliver any interest to the desk. Leon Edwards coming out and contacting for a struggle that any one that has the perception appreciates he isn’t likely to get not only wastes a media prospect, but it helps make him appear like he doesn’t have electric power in this sport. The worst point you can be in this activity is powerless. The complete even worse point you can do is get in touch with for a shot, in front of SportsCenter, and not get it.”
For Leon Edwards, he suggests he just cannot faux currently being a MAGA admirer like Colby Covington and thinks his combating ought to be adequate.
“It’s never ever about the competencies, correct? It is constantly about [that] I have to have to essentially be a clown,” Edwards mentioned to Submission Radio (h/t BJPENN.com). “It’s not me. I just can’t like put on a MAGA hat and faux. I know what he’s stating, [that] I need to do additional for promotion-intelligent, lead to it is the enjoyment company at the conclude of the working day. So, I do have an understanding of where he’s coming from. But that was Chael. He talks his way into big opportunities back in the working day, fought Anderson Silva and things like that. So, it is what it is. Like he reported, I didn’t choose a lot from it. I hear what he claimed and it is what it is.”
