Stephen Thompson apparently had never called out someone on Twitter, but recently “Wonderboy” changed that by challenging Leon Edwards.

The 37-year-old Thompson (15-4-1) hasn’t fought since last November, when he outscored Vicent Luque for the decision win. Thompson has gone 2-3 in his last 5 fights.

Recently the vaunted striker and longtime, welterweight contender shared out the callout below, via a tweet.

All due respect @Leon_edwardsmma, which I have a lot of for you, I have been saying I would like to fight you for a while now! It makes sense and would be a great match up.

I think that was my first Twitter call out ever. man that felt weird. Rolling on the floor laughingFace with tears of joy #FirstTimeForEverything

Edwards (18-3), meanwhile, hasn’t competed since last July when he recorded a decision win over Rafael dos Anjos. The 29-year-old is riding an eight-fight winning streak.
