New UFC 286 main card revealed with Leon Edwards vs. Kamaru Usman 3 for welterweight title
The UFC 286 main card looks a little different than it did a week ago, with one women’s 125-pound bout replacing another in the pay-per-view lineup.
During Saturday’s UFC Las Vegas broadcast, an updated main card for the event, which takes place at The O2 in London, was unveiled. The pay-per-view is headlined by a welterweight title trilogy between Leon Edwards and the man he dethroned by the belt, Kamaru Usman.
The biggest change to the main PPV card was the matchup between the returned Casey O’Neal and former title contender Jennifer Maya, who gained the upper hand over Joanne Wood against Luana Carolina, who is now moving to an early preliminary card.
In the co-main event, former interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje tries to stop the onslaught of Rafael Fiziev, while a welterweight bout between Gunnar Nelson and Brian Barberena serves as the main event.
Opening the pay-per-view is a middleweight battle with Marvin Vettori taking on Roman Dolidze.
