UFC 286: preview and prediction
British fighter Leon Edwards will be looking to seal a glorious homecoming on Saturday as he defends his welterweight title against Kamaru Usman as headline act for UFC 286 at London’s O2 Arena.
The trilogy bout comes just seven months after Edwards knocked out the seemingly unbeatable ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ to take the crown, with this fight his first defense.
The two fighters clashed early in their UFC careers in 2015, with Usman coming out on top that night, only for Edwards to exact revenge a full seven years later.
Edwards will now be looking to prove his shock win at UFC 278 wasn’t a one-off as he looks to seal his status as an undeniable talent at 170lbs.
The first numbered UFC event to take place in the UK since 2016, Usman is likely to face a hostile crowd as he takes on the popular Jamaican-born and Birmingham-bred fighter.
The main act’s rematch could have a tough act to follow, however, with the co-main event being considered a fight of the year candidate with Justin Gaethje taking on Rafael Fiziev in a much anticipated lightweight fight.
The main card begins at 21:00 GMT / 17:00 ET. Walks between Edwards and Usman are expected around 10:30pm GMT / 6:30pm ET. Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch a UFC 286 live stream, so you can catch Edwards vs Usman and the rest in the Octagon.

Who is Leon Edwards?
Jamaican-born British star Leon Edwards was able to break out of a world of gang violence in Birmingham thanks to MMA.
“Rocky” made his professional debut at 19 and would eventually sign up for the UFC four years later.
He has since taken 12 wins from 15 fights with his win over Usman last year, becoming the first Great Britain champion since Michael Bisping in 2016.
Who is Kamaru Usman

His unexpected loss to Edwards at UFC 278 ended a seemingly unstoppable streak of 19 consecutive MMA wins.
While the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ is known for his ground work, he can get out of trouble when needed, and has perfectly illustrated his punches as a means of attack in knockout victories against the likes of Colby Covington, Gilbert Burns and Jorge Masvidal.
