UFC PPV makes its first return to England in six years as hometown hero and UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards defends his title against Kamaru Usman. The fight will complete a thrilling trilogy that started back in 2015, with Usman beating Edwards back then. The current UFC welterweight champion then claimed his revenge last August at UFC 278 in stunning style, and he now puts his title on the line this weekend against the immediate former champion. UFC 286 will take place this Saturday in London at the 02 Arena.
UFC 286 also features a very exciting card. In the co-main event, former interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje will come up against a streaking Rafael Fiziev in a pivotal matchup in the 155-pound title rankings. The likes of Marvin Vettori and Gunnar Nelson will also be in action.
Main Event Preview
Leon “Rocky” Edwards
- Nationality: British
- Age: 31
- Height: 6′ 2″
- Reach: 74″
- Total fights: 23
- Record: 20-3-0
Leon Edwards made his UFC debut in 2014, and his record stands at 20-3, with 1 NC. The Brit is currently on a 10-match winning run, with his last loss being against Saturday’s opponent, Kamaru Usman, in 2015. His last match was also against Usman, and he managed to win the UFC welterweight title from Usman through a head-kick knockout.
Before that, Leon Edwards had been unlucky to have 5 of his last 6 matches canceled due to various reasons and Covid-19. However, the 31-year-old has undoubtedly and deservedly worked his way up the welterweight division, and he is now faced with his first title defense with a home advantage.
Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman
- Nationality: Nigerian
- Age: 35
- Height: 6′ 0″
- Reach: 76″
- Total fights: 22
- Record: 20-2-0
Kamaru Usman has dominated UFC pound-for-pound rankings over the last several years and has only lost twice in his UFC career. His last fight was the one against Leon Edwards in August last year, which he dominated before being knocked out in the last round. A win would have seen Usman equal Anderson Silva’s 16-match UFC winning record, but he will have to settle for the second-best.
Before losing his title to Edwards, Usman had successfully defended his title 5 times against big names such as Colby Covington (twice), Jorge Masvidal (twice), and Gilbert Burns. He won it against Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 in 2019 and is the favorite to win the rematch.
