CHAMPIONSHIP TRILOGY! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to The O2 in London England, on Sat., March 18, 2023, with newly-minted Welterweight kingpin, Leon Edwards, running it back with former 170-pound champion, Kamaru Usman, for a third (and likely final) time. In UFC 286’s pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, all-action Lightweight knockout artists, Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev, will lock horns with the winner inching closer to a future Lightweight title shot.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Being called up for the UFC 271 co-main event is the titanic tilt between two-time title challenger Derrick Lewis and Australian shoe drinker Tai Tuivasa. The record-setting “Black Beast” has won four of his last five while the power-punching “Bam Bam” has captured four straight and could blast his way into a title contention with a victory over Lewis. Hard to imagine this 265-pound showdown makes it all the way to the judges’ scorecards, especially considering both fighters have a combined 33 knockouts.
