The UFC arrives in London tonight with a main event title fight that will have fans on the edge of their seats.

However, Edwards flipped the script and knocked out Usman cold with a leg kick which sent shockwaves through the MMA world.

Now Usman enters Edwards' backyard as he looks to win back the UFC 170lb title in a trilogy fight which will bring an end to this rivalry, but with Edwards set to be backed by a passionate home crowd, the 'Nigerian Nightmare' will need to produce a near perfect performance in the English capital.
