UFC 286 — Leon Edwards vs. Kamaru Usman 3: Fight card, date, odds, location, rumors, complete guide
Kamaru Usman is trespassing into enemy territory to try and wrest his crown from UFC Welterweight Champion Leon Edwards. Their trilogy will headline UFC 286 on Saturday, March 18, the first UFC pay-per-view event in London in six years.
England is hosting a major UFC event for the first time since UFC 204 headlined by hometown hero Michael Bisping when he took on Dan Henderson in Manchester. There are many parallels between the two maps. Edwards and Bisping are unexpected UFC champions who defended the title for the first time on home soil. Where Bisping avenged a previous loss to Henderson, Edwards is looking to take the lead from Usman in their 1-1 series.
Last August, Edwards landed a nasty Hail Mary blow to the head that won him the UFC welterweight title and leveled his rivalry with Usman. Usman was statistically ahead and less than one minute away from equaling Anderson Silva’s record of 16 consecutive UFC wins before suffering an instant knockout. Ousmane will have to settle for second all-time behind Silva, but he will most likely regain the world title.
