Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards face off at UFC 278 press conference
This will be the second time that Usman and Edwards have faced off. The two battled in December 2015, months after Usman won the winner of The Ultimate Fighter season 21, with Usman claiming a unanimous decision.
This will also mark Usman’s sixth attempt at a UFC welterweight championship defense. He earned the title with a one-sided decision victory over Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 in March 2019.
Since then, FanSided MMA’s 2021 Fighter of the Year has successfully defended the title against Colby Covington twice, Jorge Masvidal twice and Gilbert Burns once.
Usman has not suffered a defeat in the Octagon, and his only loss in his MMA came in his second professional bout.
Edwards has not lost a fight since the defeat to Usman. He’s gone unbeaten in his last 10 fights, with nine wins and a no-contest.
Edwards had a win streak that included victories over Vicente Luque, Bryan Barbarena, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos.
After a fight with Belal Muhammad went to a no-contest, Edwards scored a win over Nate Diaz at UFC 263.
