UFC 278 Fight Card

UFC 278 takes place this coming Saturday night, August 20th in Salt Lake City and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event of the evening there’s welterweight title action as the undefeated Kamaru Usman seeks the sixth successful defense of his belt against Leon Edwards, who has gone 10-fights unbeaten since a unanimous decision loss to Usman all the way back in 2015.

In the co-main event, former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold returns after a three-year absence following back-to-back KO losses and goes straight into a major fight with former title contender Paulo Costa, who is coming off two losses in a row.

No.3 ranked bantamweight Jose Aldo is attempting one last title push before retirement and brings a three-fight winning streak into his fight with Merab Dvalishvili, who is three spots below him at No.6, but is in the midst of a seven-fight unbeaten run.

In the heavyweight division, Marcin Tybura looks to rebound after a loss last time out put an end to his five-fight winning streak, while the unbeaten Alexandr Romanov looks to extend his career record to 17-0, with five wins to his name in the UFC so far.

In the main card opener, Tyson Pedro is coming off a KO victory as he squares up to Harry Hunsucker, who has lost his last two fights via strikes and now drops down a division from heavyweight.
