Date, time, price and where fans can buy them as Leon Edwards defends welterweight title against Kamaru Usman in London

Leon Edwards will make a hero’s return to England to complete his trilogy with Kamaru Usman at UFC 286 in London this spring.

‘Rocky’ became just the second British UFC champion in history when he dethroned ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ in stunning fashion last August.

Edwards dropped Usman with a vicious head kick in the fifth round of their showdown at UFC 278 having looked to be heading towards a decision defeat.

The welterweight rivals first met in 2015, with Usman winning via the judges and now London will be the backdrop for their conclusive showdown.

UFC 286 will be only the second-ever UK numbered event following Michael Bisping’s successful middleweight title defence against Dan Henderson at UFC 204 in Manchester six years ago.
