Conor McGregor declares himself “GOAT” following recent conclusion of UFC 286
There were doubts about Leon Edwards’ claim to the welterweight throne leading up to the fight. His previous meeting with Kamaru Usman at UFC 278 ended with a head kick knockout in the final minute after Usman had primarily dominated the fight. But in this rematch, Edwards got off to a fantastic start, showcasing his exceptional skills and tactical approach.
On the other hand, Usman showed that he was not an easy opponent to beat, and his powerful punches and wrestling skills kept Edwards on his toes throughout the fight. The two fighters engaged in intense exchanges, landing significant strikes and grappling for control.
Edwards’ point deduction for breaking the rules could have led to a draw. Still, the judges ultimately decided he had done enough to retain his championship title. The victory is significant for Edwards, who has been working his way up the ranks in the welterweight division.
In addition to the excitement surrounding the fight, the event was held in London, creating extraordinary excitement for British fans. The packed arena was filled with cheers and applause for Edwards, who has become a hero to many fans in his home country.
Overall, the championship fight between Edwards and Usman was a thrilling showcase of the skills and determination of two top-level fighters. The victory for Edwards is a testament to his hard work and dedication to the sport, and he is now poised to continue his reign as the welterweight Champion in the world.
Following his victory, the lightweight champion Islam Makachev called him out, and so did Connor Mcgregor.
