For Masvidal, his last fight came in November 2017 when he took on the two-time title challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at UFC 217. Unfortunately for Masvidal, he would suffer a unanimous decision loss that put him on a two-fight losing streak. The previous coming to Demian Maia.
Prior to the two-fight skid, Masvidal had seemingly hit his stride as he got on an impressive three-fight winning streak that saw him finish the likes of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Jake Ellenberger with strikes.
As for Edwards, he’s got quite the momentum going right now yet he remains well under the radar. Having won six straight with his last coming over Cerrone in a thrilling five-round affair, Edwards has established himself as the dark horse at 170-pounds and one to keep an eye on each and every time out as he keeps on climbing the ladder.
