Leon Edwards fights Kamaru Usman at UFC 286 at the O2 in London. Here’s how much each fighter will be paid for the fight.
Usman and Edwards first went toe to toe in 2015, with the former claiming a victory. However, the British fighter took his revenge last August at UFC 278 in dramatic fashion.
Edwards pulled off a stunning final-minute finish, landing a left high kick that knocked Usman out.
In turn, the 31-year-old was crowned the UFC Welterweight champion, becoming only the UK’s second-ever fighter to achieve such a feat.
The 31-year-old will defend his crown against Usman, with the pair taking each other on for the third time this evening.
