Leon Edwards vs Kamaru Usman LIVE: UFC 286 latest updates and results tonight

UFC 286: Jack Shore defeated Makwan Amirkhani in the second round

Leon Edwards defended his welterweight title against Kamaru Usman tonight, in the main event of UFC 286 at London’s O2 Arena.

Jamaican-born Edwards dethroned Usman in stunning fashion in August, taking the belt from the Nigerian American to become the second-ever British UFC champion.

For Edwards, the result was also revenge for a points loss to Usman in 2015, meaning that tonight’s main event will conclude a hat-trick between the pair.

In the co-main event, former interim lightweight champ Justin Gaithi takes on rookie contender Rafael Fizeev, in a fight that is almost certain to steal the show.

Maya vs O’Neil – First Round

A clean hit to Maia, but O’Neill fired again with a right cross.

Maya catches a kick and looks for a one-leg takedown…but she can only drive Aussie into the fence, where O’Neal slides away.

O’Neal just missed a right cross, and Maya grabbed her, pulled her close and knelt on her body.

Maya vs O’Neil – First Round

Lots of forward pressure and volume from O’Neal early on, but without the subtlety.

Good head movement from Maya to miss the Australian. O’Neal is already red around the face, in fact.

Maya slaps the outside, which O’Neal misses with a one-two shot upstairs.

The crowd wanted Vettori to win, but they actually booed the decision! I think most people scored it for Dolidze, as they did Indy Sport.

UFC 286 LIVE: Edwards vs. Usman

Marvin Vettori defeated. Roman Duldze by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27).

That 30-27 is too surprising!! Maybe it was the leg kicks that did it…
