Edwards and Muhammad have been going back-and-forth on social media with the Birmingham-based fighter calling his fellow 170-pounder a 'clown' in response to a recent interview with MMA Junkie.
Edwards (19-3, 1 NC), 29, of Birmingham, England, recorded the biggest win of his career on June 12 at the Gila River Arena after beating Nate Diaz via unanimous decision in the first five-round non-title fight in UFC history.
But Muhammad suggested earlier this week that Edwards should be forced to fight him again as he feels they still have unfinished business after their first fight ended in such a controversial fashion.
However, Edwards didn't take too kindly to the suggestion, as he responded to his comments with a simple one-word tweet.
Muhammad then landed a couple of low blows with a series of follow-up tweets referencing Edward's famous altercation with Jorge Masvidal at UFC London in March 2019.
But Edwards would soon have the last laugh when he revealed the truth about what went on behind closed doors when the pair came face-to-face at UFC 263 fight week.
"We’re working on something for him, talking about September—but definitely in the fall. It will be against Colby Covington."
This has left Edwards as the odd man out.
