Chael Sonnen: UFC wants to pay Edwards to concede title shot to McGregor

MOSCOW, April 21 – /strong>. Analyst, former fighter of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Chael Sonnen said that the management of the promotion is doing everything so that the fight with the organization’s welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will be received by the former holder of two belts Conor McGregor.
As the American noted, the league is even ready to pay the No. 1 contender, Briton Leon Edwards, whose duel with Usman should take place in the summer.

“According to my information, the management of the UFC offered Edwards a full fee and a bonus for defeating Usman so that he would refuse this fight. It turns out that the management of the promotion wants to delay the title fight of Edwards, but does not want to offend Leon. The UFC agrees: Edwards deserves the title chance. However, they want McGregor to be Usman’s next opponent,” Sonnen said on his YouTube channel.

Edwards himself has already reacted to Sonnen’s insider on social networks:
“What the hell are you talking about?”
