One of the biggest grudge matches in recent UFC history is about to finally come to fruition.
Per sources, both Leon Edwards and Jorge Masvidal have agreed to meet on Dec. 11 in Las Vegas. The fight will take place on the UFC 269 main card.
The fight is almost three years in the making dating back to when the duo got into a skirmish backstage at an event in London in March 2019.
Since then they have engaged in a war of words but never competed against each other.
That will change in two months.
As a result, look for the Brandon Moreno x Deiveson Figueiredo 3 fight to get moved to UFC 270 on Jan. 22.
UFC 269 would feature Charles Oliveira x Dustin Poirier for the lightweight title, Amanda Nunes x Julianna Peña for the women’s bantamweight title and Edwards x Masvidal.
UFC 270 would then have Francis Ngannou x Ciryl Gane for the undisputed heavyweight title and Brandon Moreno x Deiveson Figueiredo for the flyweight title, plus Derek Brunson x Jared Cannonier, among others. Good stuff.
The front-runner to host UFC 270 at the moment is Anaheim or Las Vegas. If it’s Anaheim, it would mark the first UFC event in California since UFC 241 in August 2019.
