UFC 278 post-fight show: Reaction to Leon Edwards’ shocking KO to win title, Luke Rockhold’s retirement

Leon Edwards is the new UFC Welterweight Champion after landing a stunning last minute head kick of the UFC 278 event against Kamaru Usman.

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, José Youngs and Jed Meshew react to one of the most shocking moments in UFC history after Usman was less than a minute away from winning a clear decision against Edwards. In addition, they discuss what the win means for Edwards and the welterweight division, and whether it could open things up a bit more in the future, where Khamzat Chimaev, Jorge Masvidal, Colby Covington, Belal Muhammad and others face the incredibly gritty co-main event with Paulo Costa coming back in the victory column against Luke Rockhold – announcing his retirement – Merab Dvalishvili’s big win against José Aldo, and much more.
