The excitement for UFC 300 remains unparalleled. This makes it the best place to get a message across to numerous people quickly. Joaquin Buckley capitalized on the event to mock welterweight champion Leon Edwards. Buckley put out a sea of fliers plastered on car windows in the parking lot, indicating why the champion has not defended his title.

The fliers, designed with humor and a healthy dose of mischief, have the MMA community buzzed. The flier stated that the champion Leon Edwards was missing, and the last place he was seen was on his back in the 5th round. This was a reference to his recent fight against Colby Covington. Buckley’s stunt gained huge traction on social media.

The flier had “Softy” as the nickname for Edwards. This reference might indicate the welterweight champion breaking down after the UFC 296 press conference. The flier also touched upon Edwards’ perceived fear of losing his title to Belal Muhammad. The flier ended with a message that citizens should contact Buckley if ‘Rocky’ was found.

Joaquin Buckley seems to have taken trash-talking to a whole new level. Buckley is fresh off an impressive victory over Vicente Luque. He rose in popularity for his insane knockout of Impa Kansanganay. Buckley has clearly set his sights on the reigning UFC welterweight champion, Leon Edwards. But for now, he is content on trolling the champion. It remains to be seen whether Edwards responds to the troll job.
