Stephen Thompson recently began campaigning for a fight with Leon Edwards, but it looks like Khamzat Chimaev has a different plan for “Wonderboy”.

On Tuesday, Thompson used Twitter for the first time to call a fighter out, as he respectfully challenged his fellow welterweight contender, Edwards.

Not long after, however, Chimaev tweeted out this.

“We fighting next lets go leave Leon alone”

Chimaev is coming off a 17 second, knockout win over Gerald Meerschaert this past weekend at UFC Vegas 11, which moved his record to 9-0.

The rising star was expected to face Demian Maia next, but it’s not clear whether that fight will materialize.
