Stephen Thompson thinks Leon Edwards is getting too ahead of himself by chasing dual-champion status. Welterweight champion Edwards (21-3 MMA, 13-2 UFC), who will attempt to make his second title defense against Colby Covington in the UFC 296 headliner on Dec. 16, recently stated that he wants to become the U.K.’s first UFC two-division champion if he can get past Covington. Thompson (17-6-1 MMA, 12-6-1 UFC) faces Shavkat Rakhmonov on the same night Edwards fights Covington.
