The champ and winner of the Ultimate Fighter reality series Kamaru Usman are back and this time he is fighting a familiar opponent in Leon Edwards. Usman has already beat Edwards once but it was early in both their careers and both men are much better fighters now. The real question is has Edwards improved so much that he can actually take out the Champ who seems to be unstoppable in the prime of his career? I’d have to say, no. Edwards is a great fighter but the champ is bigger, more confident, and on one hell of a winning streak. Edwards I feel would have to get lucky to win and that’s never really where you want to be.

UFC 278 airs tomorrow night on ESPN and pay-per-view.
