Leon Edwards will challenge UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in the main event.
The main card is a pay-per-view fight that costs $75 in addition to an ESPN+ subscription ($7/month).

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will look to continue his streak of dominance as he faces challenger Leon Edwards at UFC 278 in Salt Lake City, Utah, on August 20. The main event will be streamed on ESPN+ starting at 10 p.m. ET with a $75 pay-per-view fee. UFC 278 prelims will be simulcast on ABC, ESPN, and ESPN+ starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Usman has won 15 straight fights since his UFC debut in 2015, including five successful defenses of the welterweight championship. Usman has been sidelined since suffering a broken hand in November 2021, but hopes to tie UFC legend Anderson Silva’s record of 16 straight victories. Edwards was one of the first fighters to fall to Usman in UFC, but has maintained his own unbeaten streak in 10 fights since that 2015 loss.
