UFC 286 is set to get going this weekend from the O2 Arena in London on Saturday, March 18. The card features 15 total fights and is topped by a five-bout main card. The main event this evening will see Leon Edwards put his welterweight title on the line in a rematch against Kamaru Usman. The event will air across the ESPN network, with the main card broadcast via ESPN+ PPV.
Edwards and Usman are fighting for the third time and that will be in the spotlight. But the card features some contender bouts. Notably, the co-feature of the night will see a lightweight bout between No. 3 Justin Gaethje and No. 6 Rafael Fiziev. The main and co-main event feature both “challengers” (Usman, Fiziev) installed as -240 favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook.
This card is coming to us from London, and so we get earlier fight times for the 15 bouts. The early prelims will start at 1:00 p.m. ET with the prelims at 3:00 p.m. ET. The main card is expected to begin at 5 p.m. ET with the Edwards-Usman fight to close it out. We can expect that bout to get going sometime in the 7 p.m. hour.
