Pros react to Leon Edwards KO's Kamaru Usman at UFC 278

Leon Edwards, Kamaru Usman, UFC 278

Tonight at UFC 278 featuring Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards (Leon Edwards) battle for the welterweight title to repeat itself as the protagonist.

Usman (20-2 MMA) and Edwards (20-3 MMA) originally met in December 2015 in a unanimous decision victory for the Nigerian Nightmare. After that victory, Kamaru Usman went on to a 13-game winning streak while taking the UFC welterweight title and defending it five straight times in the process.

Meanwhile, Leon Edwards has 9 wins – 0 without a match since suffering a setback from Usman in 2015. The Birmingham native defeated Nate Diaz by unanimous decision in his previous final effort at UFC 263.

Tonight’s UFC 278 Main Event proved to be a back-and-forth. Leon Edwards got off to a great start to the game, knocking Usman down and taking a large portion of the opening round. However, Kamaru Usman will turn things around in the second, third and fourth rounds, leaving “Rocky” to finish in the fifth and final round. Well, Edwards did just that, ending Usman’s night with a thunderous header in the last minute of the final innings.
