The main event at UFC 278 will feature the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
Defending welterweight champion Kamaru Usman takes on Leon Edwards in Utah. After ESPN+, ESPN/ABC airs the prelims.
It’s been more than seven years since Usman (20-1 MMA, 15-0 UFC) and Edwards (18-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) met. He has been successful since he defeated Edwards in December 2015 at UFC on FOX 17.
Usman’s next opportunity to tie Anderson Silva’s record for the longest winning streak in UFC history will be at UFC 278. As of this writing, Edwards is unbeaten in 10 fights.
