It’s officially Fight Week! The most substantial trilogy in the business will take place this coming weekend when Leon Edwards defends his newly procured UFC Welterweight championship against Kamaru Usman. Leon Edwards left the MMA spectrum stupefied when he abruptly knocked out Kamaru Usman with a head kick in the fifth round of their bout.

Edwards was down three rounds to one heading into the fifth round. The contest was almost certainly done for the Brit when he pulled a rabbit out of the hat and head-kicked Usman. Thus, fulfilling his destiny.

The 31-year-old is now set to make the first title defence of his reign against Usman in the marine event of UFC 286. The co-main event in store for fight fans is spectacular as well.

Former interim UFC Lightweight champion Justin Gathje puts his number three ranking on the line as he welcomes Rafael Fiziev into top-five contention. The victor will undoubtedly propel their case for the next title shot against the champion, Islam Makhachev.

The fight night will also see Gunnar Nelson make his return to the octagon after over a year-long layoff following a win against Takeshi Sato in March 2022. Nelson is set to face Welterweight mainstay Bryan Barbarena. Barbarena is coming off a loss to former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos.

Furthermore, the night will see undefeated Women’s flyweight Casey O’Neil make her return to the octagon. She was last seen over a year ago in the UFC. Unfortunately, the 25-year-old sustained an ACL tear which rendered her incapable of competing.

O’Neil faces former UFC Flyweight title contender Jennifer Maia. Last but not least, former UFC Middleweight title contender Marvin Bettori graces the octagon once again against surging contender Roman Dolidze. A sensational fight in the making, that is.
