Leon Edwards vs. Kamaru Usman 2 Betting Odds & Props

Get ready for Saturday’s welterweight title rematch at UFC 278 with the latest Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards odds and prop bets via FanDuel Sportsbook.

In December of 2015, Kamaru Usman stepped into the octagon to face Leon Edwards in Orlando, Florida. It was just his second bout in the UFC. Since then, “The Nigerian Nightmare” has won 14 bouts in a row, won the UFC welterweight championship, defended his belt five times, and emerged as a popular pick for the No. 1 pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world.

What a difference seven years makes — and it all comes full circle in a UFC 278 main event against Edwards with the title on the line. Naturally, “Rocky” is undefeated since that first meeting himself. So, who’s got the betting edge in this bang-bang 170-pound rematch?

Ahead of the main event action this weekend at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, let’s dive into the finest Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards odds and props on offer at FanDuel Sportsbook.
