UFC 286 Edwards vs Usman 3 fight preview

Leon Edwards makes the first defence of his title on home soil in London in a rematch against former champion Kamaru Usman.

Edwards and Usman first met in December 2015, when Usman won via unanimous decision.

In August 2022, Edwards defeated Usman for the belt during UFC 278, delivering a shocking fifth-round head kick for a knockout.

Before losing to Edwards, Usman had won 19 straight fights.

Now, the Nigerian seems more than willing to get back on top and hopes to reclaim his crown.

Edwards, meanwhile, looks to rattle the MMA world once again at the O2 Arena.

The fighter has never previously lost a fight in England.

We're giving him the slight advantage, since fighting in front of a home audience will only motivate him more.

Regardless of the outcome, this trilogy fight will be one for the history books.
