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!

Gordon badly missed weight for this fight (results HERE), but Hadley still wanted to give it a go. Good thing he did because the English youngster had no trouble getting inside and landing brutal body shots to Gordon. The veteran ate a few of them before falling to the canvas. Hadley followed up with some ground-and-pound before the referee stepped in.

Check out the finish below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:

Hadley, 26, is now 2-1 inside of the Octagon since making his debut less than one year ago. “White Kong” is one of the best up-and-coming names at 125 pounds and could parlay this win into a shot at the top 15 his next time out.
