On March 18, one of the welterweight division's longest standing rivalries comes to a close in the main event of UFC 286 at the O2 Arena in London when England's own Leon Edwards defends his crown against former champion Kamaru Usman in a rubber match the entire sports world will be watching.
Fresh from a stunning knockout of Usman last August that evened their series at 1-1, Birmingham's Edwards will now make his first title defense against Usman, who has won 19 of his last 20 bouts.
Plus, two of the lightweight division's most explosive contenders collide, as Justin Gaethje meets Rafael Fiziev in the UFC 286 co-main event.
