UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards commented on his win over Nigerian Kamaru Usman at UFC 286, held on March 19 in London.
The fight lasted the full five rounds, and Leon won by majority decision.
He wasn't getting any take-downs, I was defending myself, hitting harder punches. I kicked his legs off. But I give Kamaru credit, he gave me the hardest fight of my career. I want to thank him for being such an awesome opponent.
