This Sunday in the main event of UFC on ESPN 4, UFC welterweight Leon Edwards is set to take on the former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. While Edwards is probably making the mistake of already looking past dos Anjos and is eager to fight the dangerous Jorge Masvidal next, RDA currently has his eyes solely set on Edwards and is eager to get a victory over the Brit, so that he can build his way towards a title shot.
In a recent interview, RDA revealed that he is eager to get a title shot but wants to secure it in an old-school way by fighting and defeating everyone whom the UFC throws at him.
Here’s what he had to say:
Yeah man, like when I had my way to the UFC lightweight title, I fought five times in eleven months. And back then there were no rankings, I had to fight any and everybody that the UFC gave to me. So if I am on the path to the title right now. I gotta do the same, a victory is a victory. Edwards is a tough guy man. You know he is coming into the fight on a seven fight winning streak, but I am now looking forward to shortening and stop that win streak.
