dwards vs Usman 3 – LIVE!
The UFC returns to London tonight as Leon Edwards faces off against Kamaru Usman once again inside the octagon. The pair will complete a stunning trilogy at the O2 Arena, with the UFC welterweight title put on the line.
Birmingham’s Edwards famously knocked the dominant Usman out with a stunning spinning kick at UFC 278 back in August to avenge his initial loss to the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ in 2015. It’s time to find out whether he can do it all over again. Usman was on course to be considered one of the greatest ever before that loss and will be desperate for revenge tonight. Still, home support for Edwards could be a huge factor.
The biggest ever UFC event in British history has a stacked fight card too. Marvin Vettori and Jennifer Maia picked up wins, before Justin Gaethje won by majority decision over Rafael Fiziev in a thrilling co-main event. Gunnar Nelson produce a superb performance, winning by first-round submission against Bryan Barberena. Follow UFC 286: Edwards vs Usman 3 live below!
