While there has been no official announcement of fights at the aforementioned event at the O2 Arena, reports suggest that reigning UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards, lightweight superstar Paddy Pimblett, and women’s flyweight fan-favorite Molly McCann could be notable fighters of UFC 286.
However, UFC president Dana White has hinted that Edwards could face longtime rival Kamaru Usman in the UK as early as 2023. Even former UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, who was defeated by Leon Edwards this August, has hinted at facing ‘Rocky’. Next up is a trilogy matchup in the UK.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ expressed his interest in fighting Edwards. “We have to wait and see which date makes sense. It’s going to be at the top of next year and I want to go to England. I’m feeding to go to England.
I feel like England is my second home. England is half Africa. So, it’s time to go out there and entertain my English, and what better story than a better man? I mean you can’t write better than this. I’m excited to see what’s next and we’ll definitely figure something out,” Usman said.
