British mixed martial artist, Leon Edwards who defeated Nigeria’s Kamaru Usman 20-2-0 to 20- 3 – 0, said that people doubted him before the fight at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title at UFC 278.
“They all doubted me, they all said I couldn’t do it – look at me now!” Edwards said in the cage after the fight.
“I’m from the trenches, I’m built like this, I battle until the battle is done. I have been down my whole life, and look at me now!”
The match was looking favourable for the Nigerian at the early stage of the fight before the twist. The defeat was his first, Kamaru has taken it and moved ahead and promised to bounce back with vengeance.
“Champions fuck up sometimes.. But we bounce back and come with vengeance”
