Leon Edwards v Kamaru Usman 3: UFC 286 predictions for welterweight world-title fight


Leon Edwards defends his welterweight world title for the first time against Kamaru Usman at UFC 286 in London on Saturday.

The Birmingham fighter upset the odds to dethrone pound-for-pound great Usman in August and become just the second UFC champion from the UK.

The rivals fight for the third time and are tied at one win apiece. Can Edwards successfully defend his title or will Usman spoil the party for ‘Rocky’ on home soil?

Edwards, 31, has promised to knock Usman out again, saying: “I’m the better fighter than him, I’m the better striker than him and I’ve knocked him out before so I’ll knock him out again.”
