Nigeria’s Kamaru Usman has taunted Leon Edwards, his opponent, ahead of the UFC 278 duel between both fighters.

 

Usman challenged Edwards during the ceremonial weigh-ins on Friday evening at the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

During a press conference on Wednesday, Edwards had earlier said: “I’m going to humble you [Usman] Saturday night.”

 

Usman, 35, put his title on the line against the Briton in a rematch of the 2015 clash that saw the Nigerian win by unanimous decision.

 

 “One thing I have to say is ‘taking what from who?” Kamaru said during the weigh-in.

 

“So much has been said. Leon said a lot and he truly believes that.”

 

The number two pound-for-pound fighter is looking at snatching a sixth consecutive win against Edwards.

 

The champion, who has defended his title five times since beating Tyron Woolley in 2019, is on a 19-fight winning streak.
