Leon Edwards has waited years for this. Can he cash in?

On Saturday in Salt Lake City (man it still feels weird to type that), Leon Edwards’ long, strange journey to a UFC welterweight title shot finally comes to a head. Edwards will fight champion Kamaru Usman in the main event of UFC 278, where Edwards is going off as close to a 3-to-1 underdog. It’s been such a long slog, with so many broken promises and missed opportunities, how will Edwards react when he’s out there for real?

Plus, Dom Cruz looked OK right up to the point Marlon Vera kicked him in his damn face. And Rory MacDonald walks away.
