Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman complete their trilogy of fights at London’s O2 Arena this Saturday, headlining a stacked UFC 286 fight card in England’s capital city.

UK fighter, Edwards won the Welterweight championship in empathic style with a fifth round KO in Salt Lake City last year, and we asked a selection of Blockasset athletes to make their predictions for the six featured fights on our new-look Block Six game, ahead of this weekend’s action.


Leon Edwards stunned Kamaru Usman, and the MMA world, when his left foot met the Nigerian Nightmare’s temple in the fifth minute of the fifth round of their second UFC fight in Utah.

With the scorecards firmly in favour of an Usman victory, Edwards pulled a spectacular finish out of the bag, avenging his previous decision defeat to then-champ Usman.

Whilst the bookmakers are still firmly in favour of Usman regaining his title this weekend, history is on Edwards’ side. In the history of all immediate rematches in the UFC, only 3-11 fighters have managed to regain their title. Usman will be hoping to join Amanda Nunes, Randy Couture and Blockasset athlete Deiveson Figueredo in the history books.

In anticipation of Saturday’s fight, we asked a council of Blockasset athletes to make their picks for the main event:

Alex Pereira - Leon Edwards

Arnold Allen - Leon Edwards

Michael Chiesa - Kamaru Usman

Caio Borralho - Kamaru Usman

Another Blockasset man takes to the octagon in the evening’s co-main event, with Rafael Fiziev stepping up in test to take on former interim UFC Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje.

Ranked 5 (Gaethje) and 6 (Fiziev) respectively, this is a critical fight as both athletes look to underline their credentials at championship level. But what way do the Blockasset athletes see this one going?

Alex Pereira - Justin Gaethje

Arnold Allen - Rafael Fiziev

Michael Chiesa - Justin Gaethje

Caio Borralho - Justin Gaethje

Scotland's Joanne Wood will look to put a disappointing run of form behind her when she meets Brazilian Muay Thai specialist Luana Carolina.

Wood goes into this fight with four defeats in her last five outings, but she'll take heart that all four of those defeats came at the hands of former title challengers, including a defeat to newly-crowned flyweight champion Alexa Grasso last year.

Alex Pereira - Joanne Wood

Arnold Allen - Joanne Wood

Michael Chiesa - Joanne Wood

Caio Borralho - Luana Carolina

UFC veteran Marvin Vettori will be keen to shake off a disappointing performance against Robert Whittaker when he returns to the octagon on Saturday.

The Italian takes on the powerful Roman Dolidze, who is on a run of four consecutive stoppage victories. Vettori will be keen to cling on to his top five ranking, but this explosive Georgian will push him right to the limit.

Alex Pereira - Roman Dolidze

Arnold Allen - Roman Dolidze

Michael Chiesa - Marvin Vettori

Caio Borralho - Roman Dolidze

Jack Shore suffered the first defeat of his promising career last time out, forcing a move up to the featherweight division.

Alex Pereira - Jack Shore

Arnold Allen - Jack Shore

Michael Chiesa - Jack Shore

Caio Borralho - Jack Shore
