Join the UFC Fight Week Crew as UFC 286 Fighters Weigh In



Hoping for Drama-Free Weigh-Ins

Join the UFC Fight Week crew this morning from the fighter hotel in east London as the stars of UFC 286 tip the scales and look to make their contests official ahead of Saturday night’s fight card. We’re hopeful the drama will be in short supply this morning with neither Leon Edwards or Kamaru Usman having a history of missing the 170lb welterweight limit.

Monumental Night for British MMA

It promises to be a monumental night for British MMA at London’s O2 Arena tomorrow night, bringing a UFC world title fight to these shores for the first time in more than six years when Edwards steps out in front of a sold-out crowd accompanied by the 170lb strap. The 31-year-old will be looking to upset the oddsmakers once again by defeating the former pound-for-pound ruler Usman, signaling his arrival as a genuine great in one of the division’s most talent-rich divisions.

Usman Seeks Revenge and Redemption

However, revenge is the order of the day for Usman who still smarts at having relinquished his world championship reign in the dying moments of an otherwise dominant performance at UFC 278 last summer. Can “The Nigerian Nightmare” return to snatch back his belt and seize victory in the crucial trilogy showdown – or will Edwards prove his win in August was no fluke by repeating the feat?
