UFC 278: Edwards Rigorous Training Can’t Pull Me Down –Usman

UFC champion Kamaru Usman has boasted that he’s prepared to wrestle down Leon Edwards despite his rigorous training ahead of tonight’s UFC welterweight championship.

Usman is attempting to successfully defend the belt for the sixth time after already seeing off the challenges of Jorge Masvidal, Gilbert Burns and Colby Covington.

‘The Nigerian Nightmare’, who is beaming in confidence, stated during the press conference that he’s fired up for tonight’s fight.

“Practice is practice. Nobody gives a s*** what you can do in practice. If you’re not out there doing it against the best in the world, time and time again, then how do you know where your level really is? So, it is what it is. I’m glad he got that time off. I’m glad he’s healed up, he’s strong.

“The one thing about that though is he has to be careful. You feel that and that’s gassing you up, you feel jazzed up about that.

“But what happens when this guy who has been in the wars, taken ‘punishment’ as you said, comes out and dominates you again? How do you feel about that, and how bad does that break you on the inside as a man?”

Meanwhile, Edwards knows that this could be his one and only shot at winning the big one and as such, he’ll be preparing accordingly, with many noting how calm and sharp he looks .
