Edwards avenged the loss of 2015
Osman and Edwards met for the second time in a long time, but with the anniversary of Osman winning unanimously in December 2015.
This time the story was different and with an amazing ending: Edwards knocked Osman out a minute before the fight ended, with a powerful kick on the head of the Nigerian who dominated the fight.
Thus, after five defenses, Kamaru Osman I’s reign in the welterweight division ended. The new king is Leon Edwards, who has gone nearly seven years unbeaten and a professional record of 20 wins, three losses and a struggle with no resolution.
Edwards had already caused a major upset in the first round by bringing down the Camaro, which fell to the canvas for the first time in its history. However, the following rounds went to Osman.
Edwards’ win meant a lot to the UFC, as it ended Usman’s perfect streak of 15 straight wins and nearly nine years without a loss, putting him on the verge of breaking legend Anderson Silva’s record of 16.
Will there be a third battle between Edwards and Osman?
The uproar caused by this victory was so great that all the fans began to believe that there could be a third fight between these two fighters.
The question did not come long after Edwards’ coronation, as in the post-fight conference, the new champion was asked if a rematch with Kamaru Usman was a possibility and he replied, “I knew we would likely play again.” Revenge was in the future. Whether it’s next or later, we’ll rematch. He’s been a champ for a long time, they’ve been saying he’s the best pound sterling all week long…believe it. Like I said in the octagon, the belt no one owns.”
Regarding the location of this three-way fight, UFC president Dana White pushed for a third fight. White went so far as to say the fight could take place in England and offered Wembley Arena as a location.
Edwards, happily after he had brought down Usman, also spoke of this situation: “I heard Wembley. Wembley is sure. One hundred percent. Do it at Wembley, it should be done. Never been done before. To have a boy from Birmingham, in the UK Do it from the UK I know (Michael) Bisping did it first. But he did it to live in America, you know? So it was hard for people like me to call and say look, we can do that too. She made a point to stay in the UK United to make that happen, to show the other players who come after me, that look, if you believe in your country, and believe in your team, you can do it.”
