Here is how you can stream UFC 278 live without the use of Reddit Streams, Buffstream or Crackstreams

The UFC welterweight division is shaping into one of the most exciting division in the UFC. With the emergence of young prospects like Shavkat Rakhmonov, Sean Brady, and Khamzat Chimaev, the future of the division seems to be in good hands. Nigerian mixed martial artist Kamaru Usman reigns supreme on top of the welterweight pile with five title defenses. He is etching his way into the history books and is already a prominent figure on the ‘GOAT’ list according to UFC president Dana White. In quest for his sixth title defense, Usman faces former rival Leon Edwards at UFC 278, what many consider his biggest test so far.

A former NCAA Division II National champion, three-time NCAA DII All-American and a NAIA National qualifier, Kamaru Usman is the No.1 UFC men’s pound-for-pound fighter. In 2011, the Nigerian served as the wrestling coach for Team Miller in The Ultimate Fighter season fourteen. When he failed to qualify for the 2012 US Olympic Team Trials in freestyle wrestling, Usman made his professional MMA debut in November 2012 instead. He compiled a record of 5–1, competing for several regional promotions before trying out for The Ultimate Fighter in early 2015.

Usman was one of the fighters selected for The Ultimate Fighter season 21. He coasted his way to the finals and faced Hayder Hassan on July 12, 2015 in the finals. He won the bout via submission in the second round, thus winning a six-figure contract with the UFC. He was also awarded the Performance of the Night award.

Interestingly, Usman made his debut against future contender and UFC 278 opponent Leon Edwards. He won the fight by unanimous decision. Riding on a nine-fight winning streak, Usman next faced UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on March 2, 2019, in the co-main event at UFC 235. He won the lopsided contest via unanimous decision after dominating Woodley for five rounds.

Since then, he has defended his belt against Colby Covington twice, Jorge Masvidal twice, and Gilbert Burns once.

His opponent Leon Edwards is a former BAMMA Welterweight Champion. Currently he is ranked second in the UFC welterweight division.

Edwards began his professional fighting career in 2010, making his debut as an amateur at Bushido Challenge 2. Edwards fought Carl Booth, winning via Armbar submission in round two. Edwards then signed a contract with Fight UK MMA. He debuted for the promotion against Damian Zlotnicki, winning via technical knockout in the first round. He had two more fights for the promotion, winning against Pawel Zwiefka and losing against Delroy McDowell via DQ by way of an illegal knee.

Edwards made his UFC debut against Cláudio Silva on 8 November 2014 at UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Saint Preux. He lost the fight via split decision. Since his loss against Usman, Edwards has been on a nine fight win streak inside, with only one no contest on his record in the process.
