UFC 286: What has been said?

Edwards: “I just want to see how he reacts to getting knocked out cold, and see how he reacts travelling to the UK, seeing how crazy the fans are and just see how he comes back because he’s not getting any younger. 

“He’s, what, 35, 36? Maybe older? Let’s see how he comes back.

“It’ll be a totally different fight, I’ve said it, my coaches have said it. I’ve never lost in the UK, amateur or pro, so I’m excited. 

“I love fighting in front of my friends and my family. If he thinks he’s going in there and it’s going to be the same fight, he’s in for a rude awakening.”

Usman has been training with Gaethje ahead of the fight and tweeted: “AS IRON SHARPENS IRON, ONE MAN SHARPENS ANOTHER”
