Kamaru Usman (20-1)

The final man to make the walk to the octagon at UFC 278 will be UFC Welterweight Champion, Kamaru Usman.

Usman has one of, if not the best resumés in the history of the UFC's 170-pound division. "The Nigerian Nightmare" has held an unblemished 15-0 record in the UFC as The Ultimate Fighter Season 21 winner has defeated the likes of the aforementioned Edwards in addition to Sean Strickland, Demian Maia, Rafael dos Anjos, Tyron Woodley, Jorge Masvidal (twice), Gilbert Burns, and most recently, Colby Covington, for the second time at UFC 268.

Leon Edwards (19-4)

Standing across from Usman for the second time at UFC 278 will be the Jamaican-born and England-native, Leon Edwards. "Rocky" signed with the UFC in 2014 following a successful 8-1 run on the UK's independent scene, where he was BAMMA's former Welterweight Champion.

However, it took Edwards a while to find his strive under the MMA leader's banner as Edwards held a modest 2-2 record to begin his UFC career, but after the aforementioned loss to Usman, Edwards has been unstoppable, boasting an unblemished 9-0 record inside the UFC octagon, including wins over the likes of Vicente Luque, Bryan Barberena, Donald Cerrone, Gunnar Nelson, Rafael dos Anjos, and most recently, fan-favorite Nate Diaz at UFC 263, last June.
