Leon Edwards: I offered to fight Magny or Chiesa at UFC Fight Island 8, but UFC said no


According to Edwards, he actually wanted to face either Chiesa or Magny — both higher ranked than Chimaev but with much less hype surrounding them both — and then fight Chimaev afterward, but the UFC shot that down.

“I offered to fight Neil or Chiesa in the main event Jan. 20 and Chimaev straight after, but the UFC decided against it,” Edwards wrote on Instagram.
