Edwards survived though and won the unanimous verdict. Was it enough to earn the next title shot that he’s been calling for? Usman doesn’t think so.
“That don’t help you,” Usman told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto on the performance of Edwards. “I guess no one deserves it.”
To that, Edwards reacted in the post-fight press conference.
“All those guys are making excuses, they know I’m the real deal,” Edwards said. ” … Then who fucking does [deserve it]? Colby doesn’t. … Who else fucking deserves it?”
