UFC 286 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

For the first time in over 6 years, the UFC is back in London for a PPV card. Then, it was Michael Bisping defending his middleweight title vs Dan Henderson in a rematch. Similarly now, the UK boasts a champion with Leon “Rocky” Edwards facing familiar foe Kamaru Usman in a trilogy series that stands one a piece. The decider awaits.

In addition to the blockbuster welterweight main event, British fans are in for a treat when one of, if not the most, electrifying fighters in the history of the sport, Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje, collides with Kazakhstan wrecking ball Rafael Fiziev in the co-main event.
