Round three: Kamaru Usman vs Edwards at UFC 278
Both fighters enter this round more wary as Usman’s ankle appears injured. The ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ is able to hold Edwards to the side of the Octagon, landing kicks and punches on the Brit.
Sensing an opening, Edwards tries to counter, but Usman traps him and lands more punches on his side and head, wearing out a visibly exhausted Edwards.
Edwards is unable to counter once in this round as his attempts to raise his arms end in fresh punishment from Usman.
