Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman throw down for a third tonight in the UFC 286 headliner. Edwards came from behind to knock out Usman with a last-gasp head kick to snatch the UFC welterweight strap with less than sixty seconds left on the clock.
Now, Usman is back for revenge but will have to do so on foreign soil this time with London’s O2 Arena playing host to the event. The card also includes a lightweight co-feature attraction between top-rated lightweights Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev while Gunnar Nelson, Marvin Vettori and Casey O’Neill feature as well.
UFC 286 kicks off at 5pm with the early prelims which are scheduled to be followed by the prelims at 7pm. The main card is then set to begin at 9pm. Edwards vs Usman can then be expected at around 10.30pm.

Edwards: “I just want to see how he reacts to getting knocked out cold, and see how he reacts travelling to the UK, seeing how crazy the fans are and just see how he comes back because he’s not getting any younger.
“He’s, what, 35, 36? Maybe older? Let’s see how he comes back. It’ll be a totally different fight, I’ve said it, my coaches have said it.”
Usman: “I will deal with him March 18. I’ve never been disrespectful with Leon. If anything, I’ve been the only guy that has given him respect all throughout his career.
“I’m not going to start now. He said a couple things now that have offended me, but I’ll talk to him about that on Saturday night.”
