Edwards vs Usman 3
Leon Edwards retained his throne as the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight titleholder after a majority decision win over Kamaru Usman at UFC 286 on Saturday at the O2 Arena in London.

Edwards utilized his exceptional takedown defense, impressive counterstriking, and kicks to the body, head, and legs to secure the victory. The judges scored the bout 48-46, 48-46, and 47-47.

With a 2-1 advantage over Usman in their trilogy, Edwards now dominates the 170-pound weight class. Usman struggled to break through Edwards' gameplan and failed to dethrone the champion. Despite benefiting from a point deduction in Round 3, Usman could not shift the momentum in his favor.

Edwards' superior performance culminated in a fifth-round defense against Usman's increasingly desperate takedown attempts, coupled with partially blocked head kicks, short-range uppercuts, and a superb standing elbow.
Kamaru should take a break from UFC
I always knew Edwards would kick his Bum, butt again. It was way too sudden. Israel Adesanya did same thing. When you lose a fight, the winner has a psychological advantage over you, so you tend to have that rush of blood and crave for vengeance. He's 36 now, at the twilight of his career.
