Leon Edwards has had a tough road to the gold. The British fighter will attempt for the welterweight championship at UFC 278 against Kamaru Usman.

It won't be wrong to say that Leon Edwards is arguably the most unluckiest fighter in the UFC. Quite similar to Tony Ferguson.

While Usman is a huge favorite to win the fight, there's no denying the unpredictable nature of a mixed martial arts.

"Yeah, you would definitely get a trilogy, it would make sense, yes." White said on the possibility of Edwards vs Usman 3.
