There were doubts about Leon Edwards’ claim to the welterweight throne leading up to the fight. His previous clash with Kamaru Usman at UFC 278 ended in a head kick knockout in the last minute after Usman dominated the fight in the first place. But in this rematch, Edwards got off to a fantastic start, showing his exceptional skill and tactical approach.

On the other hand, Usman showed he wasn’t an easy opponent to hit, and his powerful punches and wrestling skills kept Edwards on his toes throughout the fight. The two fighters engaged in intense exchanges, landing significant punches and fighting for control.
Edwards’ point deduction for infraction could have resulted in a tie. Despite this, the judges ultimately ruled that he had done enough to retain his championship title. The win is significant for Edwards, who has worked his way up the welterweight division.

Adding to the excitement of the fight, the event took place in London and caused exceptional excitement among British fans. The packed arena was filled with cheers and applause for Edwards, who has become a hero to many fans in his home country.
Overall, the championship fight between Edwards and Usman was an exciting display of the skill and determination of two top-level fighters. The win for Edwards is a testament to his hard work and dedication to the sport and he is now poised to continue his reign as welterweight champion of the world.

After his win, lightweight champion Islam Makachev challenged him, as did Connor McGregor. blank Conor McGregor declares himself ‘GOAT’ after recently completing UFC 286.
