UFC 278 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

The UFC roadshow has arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah for the first time this week. The time has finally come for Jamaican-born Englishman Leon “Rocky” Edwards to fight for gold, but he’ll have to overcome the last person to beat him, UFC P4P no.1 and welterweight king Kamaru Usman, in a main event rematch for the ages. The co-main event sees former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold return for the first time in 3 years to take on wrecking-ball Paulo Costa. Meanwhile, “The King of Rio” Jose Aldo looks to perhaps position himself once more in title contention consideration with a win over Georgian buzzsaw Merab Dvalishvili.
