Kamaru Usman seeking redemption against Leon Edwards at UFC 286
Kamaru Usman is seeking payback when he faces UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards at UFC 286 in London this Saturday.
The former welterweight king was on an incredible 19-win streak when he faced Edwards a UFC 278 in August. Having dominated the fight and being deep into the final round, Usman was on the cusp of a sixth title defence.
But Edwards was not done, firing a powerful left high kick that found its mark, sending Usman to the shadow realm, shocking the world and grabbing the belt.
"I've never been in this position, but I know that mentally, nothing has changed for me," the Nigerian-born fighter told The Pivot Podcast.
