This will be Edwards’ first title defense against a fighter other than former champion Kamaru Usman.

Ahead of his much-awaited bout against Covington, Leon Edwards is on a media tour to promote the UFC’s last pay-per-view event of 2023. In an interview with SB Nation, the 32-year-old was asked what he thought about Covington’s attempts to get in his head by talking trash about him.

Edwards agreed that Chaos had been trying to knock him off his game by getting in his head. However, he did not seem to take the American’s insults very seriously, commenting that it was quite different from the trash talk he grew up with. He went as far as comparing him to the American Pie franchise character Stifler.

“Yeah 100% [he’s trying to get in my head]. I think he’s like a different kind of banter to like where I’m from. And the way I grew up, you know, like it just remind me of like a typical American jock, you know. You know, it’s like Stifler from American Pie, you know, that kind of person. [He] just like talks sh** and it’s okay, like whatever, you know,” the welterweight champion said.

It seems Edwards is not aware that Colby Covington plays a deliberately brash and outspoken villainous character in order to antagonize himself to the fans. And the Englishman seems to have taken all of Covington’s insults to heart and made clear just how low an opinion he has of Chaos.

And it makes it easier for me to train, makes it easier for me to go out there and punch a hole in his face,” he added. Who do you think will win in their bout?
