Leon Edwards defends his UFC welterweight title for the first time on his home turf when the promotion heads to London for Saturday’s UFC 286 event. In the headlining bout, Edwards battles the man he dethroned, Kamaru Usman, in a trilogy match that has so many questions and storylines attached to it.

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Alexander K. Lee, and Jed Meshew get you ready for the pay-per-view event by discussing the championship fight between Edwards and Usman, and the stakes involved for both men outside of the title, along with surprise backup fighter Colby Covington’s place in the title picture. Additionally, they preview the incredible co-main event between Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev, discuss the under-the-radar matchups, answer some viewer questions, and more.
