It looks like Rafael dos Anjos is going to face Leon Edwards next, after the latter claimed the former lightweight champ had turned down the bout.
Dos Anjos and Edwards are going to fight at the UFC’s July 20th card in San Antonio. Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole was the first to report the match-up, and recently dos Anjos tweeted out the response to Edwards below.
I guess you’re wrong son, see you in July https://t.co/eipGFq37fQ
