UFC 286: Edwards vs. Usman 3

March 18 @ 11:30 pm - March 19 @ 7:30 am

UFC 286: Edwards vs. Usman 3 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on March 18, 2023, at The O2 Arena in London, England


The event is expected to feature a headline UFC Welterweight Championship trilogy fight between Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman, a former champion and winner of The Ultimate Fighter: American Top Team vs. Blackzilians welterweight competition.

Usman previously defeated Edwards in their initial encounter at UFC on Fox: dos Anjos vs. Cowboy 2 in December 2015, but Edwards won the title in their second meeting at UFC 278 in August 2022 with a fifth-round knockout.

A lightweight fight between Michał Figlak and Chris Duncan was originally scheduled for the event, but Figlak withdrew due to injury and was replaced by Omar Morales.

A featherweight bout between Nathaniel Wood and Lerone Murphy was also planned for the event. However, Wood had to withdraw because of a leg injury, and it remains uncertain whether the UFC will seek a replacement for him.

Finally, a welterweight fight between Gunnar Nelson and Daniel Rodriguez was slated for this event, but Rodriguez withdrew for undisclosed reasons, and Bryan Barberena stepped in as his replacement.
