Before UFC 278, Kamaru Usman was one of the most dominant UFC welterweights champions, who has beaten elite opponents with ease.

Usman was supremely confident that he would get the win over Leon Edwards in the rematch at UFC 278 and move on to bigger things.

However, Kamaru Usman was equally shocked as the MMA fans when he found out that Leon Edwards won the fight with a head kick KO in the last minute of round number 5.

However, The Nigerian Nightmare is already planning to get his revenge and win back his welterweight title by beating Leon Edwards.

In an interview with TMZ, Kamaru Usman confirmed that he will fight Leon Edwards in a trilogy on his UFC return. And this time he wants to fight Rocky in England.
