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 the headline act for UFC 286 at the O2 Arena in London.
The trilogy match-up comes just seven months on from Edwards knocking out the seemingly unbeatable “Nigerian Nightmare” to take the crown, with this fight his first defence.
The two fighters went head-to-head early in their UFC careers back in 2015, with Usman coming out on top that evening, only for Edwards to claim revenge a full seven years later.
Edwards will now look to prove that his shock win at UFC 278 was no one-off as he looks to seal his status as the undeniable talent at 170lb.
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, Birmingham bred fighter.
The headline-act rematch may have a tough act to follow, however, with the co-main event being tipped as a fight of the year candidate with Justin Gaethje facing off against Rafael Fiziev in a much-anticipated lightweight clash.
The main card starts at 9pm GMT / 5pm ET. The Edwards vs Usman cagewalks are expected at 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.

“Rocky” made his professional debut at 19, and would eventually sign up with the UFC four years later.
He has since gone on to chalk up 12 wins from 15 fights with his victory last year over Usman seeing become Britain’s first champion since Michael Bisping back in 2016.

His unexpected defeat to Edwards at UFC 278 ended a seemingly unstoppable run of 19 straight MMA victories.
While the “Nigerian Nightmare” is known for his floor work, he can punch his way out of trouble when needed, and perfectly illustrated his fists as a means of attack in knockout wins against the likes of Colby Covington, Gilbert Burns and Jorge Masvidal.
