    What has been said?

    Jesse 'Bam'Rodriguez:

    “This is the biggest fight of my career,” Rodriguez said of the matchup. “I’m so excited to fight Sunny Edwards. I’ve seen a lot of talk about the fight before it was even signed. I know a lot of people are going to be tuned in.”  

    Sunny Edwards:

    “I think me and Bam have set the tone in the lighter weights and a few more need to happen now,” Edwards told Talksport.

    “I feel with me - and it’s shown in my performances - the better the opponent, the better I am. I know it’s kind of cliche. Because what I do is kind of dancing with the opponent, I let them put the input in and I go around them. If they’re really good then what I do becomes really, really good to beat them.”
