Join us tonight on Bloody Elbow for live results, discussion, and round by round scoring for the co-main event of UFC 286 from the O2 Arena in London, England

Today’s card will be headlined by a welterweight title fight. In the main event, Leon Edwards will look to successfully defend his title against former champion, Kamaru Usman. The co-main event will see fan favorite Justin Gaethje look to get back on track against a streaking Rafael Fiziev.

This post will cover the co-main event between Gaethje and Fiziev. Gaethje is coming off a failed attempt to obtain the lightweight title against Charles Oliveira. He’ll look to get back into the title picture by turning away Fiziev, who has developed a reputation as one of the more entertaining strikers in the sport. Should Fiziev win, it will be his seventh consecutive win, adding a fresh face to the title picture.
