UFC 286: Leon Edwards vs. Kamaru Usman 3 results, highlights

22:15 GMT: Rafael Fiziev is preparing to take on Justin Gaethje in the co-headline event tonight. The Azerbaijani starts as favourite.

22:00 GMT: Colby Covington is in the building. He’s just eviscerated UFC 286 headliners Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman, compared his potential involvement to the Revolutionary War, claimed the 2021 US elections were rigged against close friend Donald Trump and insulted British women in his role as backup fighter for the event.

Here’s how he weighed in yesterday, which he says he did at a day’s notice.

21:45 GMT: Marvin Vettori beats Roman Dolidze by decision! Fourth-ranked middleweight Vettori fought smart against his former training partner in a hard-to-call fight, edging it by avoiding trading too often with the feared Georgian.

Next up: a flyweight bout between Jennifer Maia and Casey O’Neill!

21:30 GMT: The main card is under way, with Marvin Vettori and Dolidze into the third round of their tear-up.

21:05 GMT: Jack Shore beats Makwan ‘Mr Finland’ Amirkhani! There were a few Finns brandishing a flag at the weigh-in here at the O2 who won’t be happy with that result.

20:35 GMT: Chris Duncan beats Omar Morales by decision in a back-and-forth fight!

Meanwhile, Muhammad Mokaev says he thought about tapping out during that gruesome kneebar. He attended the post-fight press conference on crutches.

20:10 GMT: Look away now if you’re of a delicate disposition. Sam Patterson suffered a shuddering defeat to Yanal Ashmoz.

19:45 GMT: Hugely popular prospect Muhammad Mokaev escaped a submission defeat… and scored a late win by the same method. Wow!

19:20 GMT: Lerone Murphy edged to a split decision over Gabriel Santos, winning 29-28 on two cards and losing by the same scoreline on the other.
