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