MMA: UFC Fight Night-Cerrone vs Masvidal Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 170-pound veteran, Jorge Masvidal, has already agreed to fight welterweight wunderkind Leon Edwards, which is why “Rocky” doesn’t understand why “Gamebred” is now calling out Darren Till.

Probably because he’s chasing that paper.

“Darren Till, I hear you having the same problems,” Masvidal wrote on social media. “I am trying to find someone to fight you in your backyard. I love fighting in other people’s backyards. I’m game if UFC can make it happen.”

Till retweeted and responded in kind:

Not surprisingly, Edwards is having none of it.

“It’s ridiculous because I’ve been calling both of them out for quite awhile now,” the Brit told Eurobash (via MMA Fighting). “First of all, Masvidal said he wouldn’t come to the U.K. and now I’m seeing this shit today about him and Darren. At this stage it’s just bullying, I’m trying to bully and force these guys into fighting me. I’ll say it again, the best fight for the U.K. is me versus Darren. Masvidal doesn’t even matter in the U.K., nobody even knows him there.”

Edwards (16-3) is riding a six-fight win streak that includes unanimous decision victories over Bryan Barberena and Donald Cerrone, among others, but is only ranked No. 10 in the division, one spot behind Masvidal.

“Gamebred” (32-13), meanwhile, is coming off back-to-back losses to Demian Maia and Stephen Thompson.

Who do you, as a fan, want to see Edwards fight?
