The UFC’s final event of the month is the UFC 278 pay-per-view in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 20th. In the main event, Kamaru Usman defends his welterweight title against Leon Edwards, who’s unbeaten in his last ten fights. The last time Edwards lost was back in 2015, when he dropped a three-round decision to none other than Kamaru Usman.

In co-main event action, former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold returns to the cage for the first time since 2019, and awaiting him will be the heavy hands of former UFC title challenger Paulo Costa. Perhaps the most compelling fight on the entire card is a men’s bantamweight bout between legendary ex-UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and rising star Merab Dvalishvili, with the winner moving one step closer to a title shot.
