UFC 278 PPV price: How much does it cost to watch Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards 2 fight on ESPN pay-per-view?

Kamaru Usman is competing in his sixth defense of the UFC welterweight title at UFC 278 and already tops the UFC pound-for-pound list. If he beats Leon Edwards on August 20 at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, UFC President Dana White believes Usman will be considered a true all-time great.

“You know, I still think about Jon Jones. It’s time to talk about Kamaru Usman, you know?” White said at the UFC 277 post-fight press conference. “He’s a fight away from tying Anderson Silva. He has already beaten Jon Jones and GSP. And in his next fight, when he beats Leon Edwards, he ties Anderson Silva. So yes, he is under discussion.”

Usman has faced Edwards before. Back in 2015, Usman won unanimously. Since then, Usman has won 13 times in a row. After beating Tyron Woodley for the title, Usman defended the belt against Colby Covington (twice), Jorge Masvidal (twice) and Gilbert Burns.

Edwards has won 9-0 with a no-contest since his first go-around with Usman. His last fight was a unanimous decision win over Nate Diaz.
