Leon Edwards gives Kamaru Osman a long-awaited shot for the UFC welterweight title.

Aaron Bronsteter TSN Sports recently spoke with UFC President Dana White, who confirmed that the No. 3 contender for the championship is “100 percent” in the next round.

“This kid ran very hard,” White said. “He deserves it. If you look, Colby [Covington] lost to [Usman] twice, Gilbert [Burns] lost, Leon’s next. He is number three. “

White did not give a prospective date for the fight. However, it could happen in the second quarter of this year. Osman broke his right arm before the rematch against Colby Covington in UFC 268 and has yet to recover from his injury.

Osman and Edwards fought in Acesparks 17 at the UFC more than six years ago, where the Nigerian Nightmare defeated the Rockies by unanimous decision. Osman continued his seven-fight winning streak and won a championship chance at UFC 235 against then-champion Tyrone Woodley. The 34-year-old dominated Woodley and won the defensive belt five times against the aforementioned Covington (x2). ), Jorge Masvidal (x2) and Gilbert Burns in recent performances.

The defeat to Osman was the last time Edwards had been defeated in the octagon. Since then, he has won 8-0 against celebrities such as Vicente Luke, Donald Serrone and Rafael dos Anjos. Unfortunately, the Birmingham citizen lost his career for almost two years due to a worldwide pandemic, the cancellation of many battles, and severe COVID-19 disease. When he finally started again, his return was disrupted after he accidentally hit Belal Muhammad in the UFC Vegas 21 tournament.

Despite the result, Edwards campaigned to strike against Osman, but did not accept. Instead, he fought again and made a unanimous decision over Nate Diaz at UFC 263 last June. At the time, Edwards was expected to deal with his frustration with Masvidal on his next trip, but that was canceled after Gambred left the game due to injury. The 30-year-old preferred to wait and sit with Osman, a tactic that often led to mixed results. This time it worked and Edwards now gets his paycheck.
