Rio Ferdinand meets Leon Edwards

We are just 9 days out from the absolute barn burner of a night UFC 296 has in store for fight fans.


And for us here in the UK it’s one of the biggest nights of the MMA calendar year, as our very own Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards will be making his 2nd Welterweight title defence against Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington in the entertainment capital of the world.


Capturing the strap back at the tail end of 2022, ‘Rocky’ will forever be remembered for the kick heard round the world dethroning one of, if not the most dominant Welterweight champions in UFC history, Kamaru Usman at UFC 278.


With the huge rivalry now over between the two, Leon Edwards looks past the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ and looks to bring calm to the ‘Chaos’ in Las Vegas Nevada. Madness behind the scenes with fellow UFC fighter Ian Garry, speculation on his future in the division and fulfilling his lifelong dream for his mum has given the UK’s Welterweight one hell of a 2023. Leon looked to set the record straight on the drama with Ex-England and Manchester United Defender Rio Ferdinand recently, and even put the legendary CB through the paces in the Octagon In the latest episode of TNT SportsRio Meets series’.
