UFC278: Usman vs Edwards
Is Kamaru Usman the current greatest fighter in the UFC? He might be, and he’s back in action after a long time out of action. The last time the current welterweight champion entered the ring, was back in November 2021.
He’s back to defend his belt against number one contender Leon Edwards. With a record of 19-3, Edwards has proved himself worthy to take a shot at the title, winning his last nine fights in a row (except for a cancelled fight in March due to an accidental eye poke).
This won’t be the first time these two have crossed paths, with the two battling it out early in their UFC careers, with Usman getting the victory decision at the time.
Plus, Jose Aldo and Merab Dvalishvili will look to close the gap on the ladder in the bantamweight division when they meet in the undercard.
This fight card is sure to be filled with action, and there’s no better place to watch it than LIVE AND LOUD on one of Canberra’s biggest screens in the Onyx Lounge.
From 12pm, Sunday August 21.
