UFC 286 Preview

Leon Edwards sits at 20-3, while Kamaru Usman is 20-2, so their welterweight battle at UFC 286 in London should be a hotly-contested bout. Their previous match-up saw Usman dominate nearly the entire fight until Edwards used a head kick in the final minute of round five to knock Usman out.

The Edwards vs Usman fight is expected to start at roughly 5 p.m. Eastern time. The undercard is as follows:

Gunnar Nelson vs. Bryan Barberena, welterweights
Casey O’Neill vs. Jennifer Maia, women’s flyweights
Marvin Vettori vs. Roman Dolidze, middleweights
Jack Shore vs. Makwan Amirkhani, featherweights
Omar Morale vs. Chris Duncan, middleweights
Sam Patterson vs. Yanal Ashmoz, lightweights
Muhammad Mokaev vs. Jafel Filho, flyweights
Lerone Murphy vs. Gabriel Santos, featherweights

Jake Hadley vs. Malcolm Gordon, flyweights
Joanne Wood vs. Luana Carolina, women’s flyweights
Ludovit Klein vs. Jai Herbert, lightweights
Julianna Miller vs. Veronica Macedo, women’s flyweights

At the pre-fight press conference, Edwards said that he thinks if Usman loses, he should retire.

“Our mentalities are in two different places. I feel like he’s on the way out, and I’m going to open that door for him and give him a path to follow his fashion dreams and wherever he wants to go,” said Edwards. “I think he’s already got one, something’s out the door and I was going to add to that. Whether he retires after or not, it’s up to him.”

Meanwhile, Usman said that he is focused and ready to regain his title.

“When you start to just defend and defend and defend (the belt), it does kind of get lackadaisical, it just gets repetitive,” said Usman. “This one immediately I found it on the ride to the hospital after [UFC] 278 … I got presented with an opportunity to be able to fall as a champion and rise again.”

He continued, “Honestly, you know, there’s not many more things left for me to do. This one and each and everyone is special. I would love this one as well, everyone is special so I would love this one as well. The Colby one was special, the Masvidal one was special, this would be special just as well.”
