Leon Edwards Finally Gets a Top 10 Ranking

Leon Edwards Finally Gets a Top 10 Ranking

Leon Edwards went into his fight with Rafael dos Anjos ranked outside of the top 10, an almost unbelievable statistic when you look at his overall record and his current win streak.

But thankfully a more realistic view of his talent is reflected in the new UFC welterweight rankings.

The win over the former UFC lightweight champion sees catapult over the likes of Darren Till and sees him now ranked 4th.

Edwards is likely to get Jorge Masvidal or the winner of Colby Covington and Robbie Lawler next, and Edwards could be just one win away from a shot at UFC gold.
