One he went backstage, however, Edwards allegedly approached him with his hands up, while Masvidal’s hands were behind his back. The two got into a scuffle and had to be separated by security.

According to Leon Edwards, this account of events is not completely true. He said that he was backstage doing interviews with media and was simply walking. He denied having his hands up and said that the two got into a scuffle due to Masvidal.

He said that had his hands been up, Masvidal would not have been able to hit him.

The two appear to be heading towards a fight of their own, building off this ‘heat’.

While some fans suggested that Leon Edwards was scared, Ariel Helwani said that Edwards had survived gang culture, and was not intimidated at all.
