Leon Edwards vs Kamaru Usman LIVE: UFC 286 latest updates tonight with Sam Patterson KO loss

UFC 286: The lights go out in the O2 arena as the fight begins

Leon Edwards will defend his welterweight title against Kamaru Usman in the main event of UFC 286 at London’s O2 Arena tonight.

Jamaican-born Edwards defeated Usman in stunning fashion in August to take the belt from the Nigerian to become Britain’s second UFC champion.

For Edwards, the result also saw revenge for a point loss to Usman in 2015, meaning tonight’s main event will round out a trilogy between the pair.

The co-main event pits former interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje against rising contender Rafael Fiziev in a match that is almost guaranteed to steal the show.
