UFC 278 PPV will be headlined by the Welterweight Championship bout between Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards while the veterans like Jose Aldo and Luke Rockhold will be on the main card.
Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards will be clashing for the second time in their career. Their first clash was in fact Usman’s first bout after winning the Ultimate Fighter tournament in 2015, where he got a unanimous decision win.
Usman is holding onto the Welterweight title since the start of 2019 and will be making his sixth defense at UFC 278. Previous defenses include Tyron Woodley, Colby Covington(twice), Jorge Masvidal(twice), and Gilbert Burns. He is on 19 fights winning streak overall and 15 fights winning streak in UFC.
Edwards will be returning to the ring 14 months after battling Nate Diaz at UFC 263. He has also not lost any of his bouts since losing to Usman in 2015 and holds a record of 9-0-1 since then. His victims include the likes of Rafael dos Anjos, Donald Cerrone, and Vicente Luque among others. Will he be able to avenge the previous loss to Usman or will Usman carry on with his title reign?
In the co-main event, Luke Rockhold will return to the octagon after 3 years. He last fought in the Light Heavyweight division where he lost to Jan Blachowicz via knockout. He will be facing Paulo Costa who missed weight before his last bout against Marvin Vettori, leading to that bout being bumped up to the Light Heavyweight division.
UFC Veteran Jose Aldo will also be on the main card and will face Merab Dvalishvili in a bantamweight bout. Marcin Tybura vs Alexander Romanov and Tyson Pedro vs Harry Hunsucker are the other two bouts on the main card.
