About UFC 278: Usman vs. Edwards 2

The Nigeran Nightmare comes into UFC 278 on a 19-fight winning streak looking to defend his title for the sixth time. After defeating Jorge Masvidal, Colby Covington, Gilbert Burns, Rafael Dos Anjos, and Covington again, Usman is squaring off against the man that he beat in his first ever UFC match, Leon Edwards.

Back at “UFC on Fox 17” on Dec. 19, 2015, Usman got his first career victory in a unanimous decision. However, that was the last time that Edwards lost a match. Since then, “Rocky” is on a 10-fight unbeaten streak with wins over Dominic Waters, Albert Tumenov, Vicente Luque, Bryan Barberena, Peter Sobotta, Donald Cerrone, Gunnar Nelson, Rafael dos Anjos, and Nate Diaz.

The co-main event for the night features former Featherweight champion Jose Aldo facing off against sixth-ranked Merab Dvalishvili. Aldo is currently on a three-fight winning streak and Merab has won six straight, most recently beating Marlon Moraes by knockout at UFC 266.

Also on the card, Paulo Costa will take on former champion Luke Rockhold in a battle to move up the Middleweight ranks. Both men have lost their previous two fights and are looking to get back in the win column. Interestingly, none of Rockhold’s UFC fights have ever gone to a decision, so there’s a possibility that this one could end at any second on Saturday.

Why You Need ESPN+ if You’re a UFC Fan

Since the UFC partnered with ESPN+, the worldwide leader in sports’ streamer has become a must-have service for all MMA fans. Not only are the promotion’s major events available via ESPN+ Pay-Per-View, but the platform also is the home of “Dana White’s Contender Series,” “The Ultimate Fighter,” “UFC Live,” “UFC Embedded,” “DC & RC,” and tons of other original UFC-focused content.

The service also has an extensive archive including UFC’s earliest events dating back to UFC 1, highlights from recent cards, a library of title fights, past PPVs, and more — all of which can be watched on-demand on ESPN+.
