Leon Edwards, the UFC welterweight champion, stunned the entire world when he knocked the title out of Kamaru Usman in August 2022. He further shook many people by successfully defending the title against Usman in March 2023.

Avenging his last career loss so far, Edwards is now 2-1 over Kamaru Usman and is ready to welcome new competitor Colby Covington at UFC 296. While several fans are now praiseworthy of the Briton’s fighting style, Edwards’ physique has also been the talk of the town.

Weighing at 170 lbs during fight weeks, Leon Edwards is 6’2” tall with a reach of 74” and possesses a ripped physique. The undisputed UFC welterweight champion recently posted a picture of his bare body on IG, sending several fans into a frenzy.

Here’s how netizens and MMA fans reacted to Edwards’ post.

Edwards has been undefeated for eight years now, aiming for his second successful title defense since becoming the champion. He is an elite striker who can trade shots with any man in his division. His performance reflected a sheer improvement in the rematch against Kamaru Usman.  On the contrary, Colby Covington has been inactive for over a year. This can play a pivotal role in the fight as ‘Rocky’ has been more active than ‘Chaos’.
