Hollywood star Tom Holland and snooker legend KSI will be at UFC 286 in London to watch Edwards vs. Usman.
UFC returned to London for a massive pay-per-view title fight, and the city turned out in force to see the stars.
It’s been only six months since Kamaru Usman knocked out Britain’s Leon Edwards with a head kick, but the two fighters are already back in the ring for a rematch where Edwards will defend his welterweight title.
Since Michael Bisping’s victory over Dan Henderson in 2016, the UFC has not held a pay-per-view event in England since.
Moreover, many famous people, both in and out of show business, came to celebrate the event.
Several famous actors, including Jason Statham, Tom Holland, Miles Teller, and Jared Leto, were spotted having a good time cageside.
Snooker great Ronnie O’Sullivan was there, as was YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI.
Even though UFC superstar Conor McGregor promised a surprise appearance, he didn’t show up.
Tom Aspinall, a heavyweight in the UFC, was a pundit for BT Box Office and he encouraged the champion, Eddie Edwards, to take it all in.
What I would tell him is to take it all in and enjoy it,” he said. These occasions don’t come around very often.
