Barstool Sports has recently reached out to Dana White for an exclusive interview which is due to be made public, but Robbie Fox shared a sneak peek into the interview with a short 50 second clip that he shared on Twitter.
The clip shows a playful banter between Fox and Dana White regarding the Masvidal vs Edwards fight that Fox wants to happen, while White joked about whether it has been made official yet.
However, the UFC president did hint that they might just make the fight happen.
“Are there any plans for the Jorge Masvidal – Leon Edwards fight? I saw Leon Edwards two days ago, he’s kinda changed his tone on that one and said that he’s down to fight Masvidal,” Fox told White.
“You’re throwing all these ‘well, what about this one? what about that one? what about this one?’ You want to do a 30 minute interview about all the fights that you want to see?” the UFC prez jokingly asked Fox.
“I’ll throw you a bone so you get off my back here, yeah maybe we will do Leon Edwards and (Jorge) Masvidal,” White added.
