Aaron Bronsteter of TSN Sports recently spoke with UFC president Dana White, who confirmed the No. 3 ranked contender was ‘100 percent’ next in line for the champion.

“That kid’s had a rough run,” said White. “He deserves it. If you look at it, Colby [Covington] lost to [Usman] twice, Gilbert [Burns] lost, Leon’s next. He’s number three.”

White did not provide details regarding a prospective date for the fight. However, it is likely to happen sometime during the second quarter of the year. Usman broke his right hand before his rematch against Colby Covington at UFC 268 and has not recuperated from said injury yet.

Minnesota man sentenced to 8 years for role in unrest over rumored police shooting

  Minnesota man sentenced to 8 years for role in unrest over rumored police shooting A man who looted and and damaged stores in unrest that followed false rumors of a police shooting in Minneapolis was sentenced Wednesday, prosecutors said.Victor Devon Edwards, 32, of St. Paul, was convicted by a jury of one count of riot and one count of arson in August and was sentenced Wednesday to 100 months in prison.

Usman and Edwards have fought before over six years ago at UFC on FOX 17, where the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ defeated ‘Rocky’ via unanimous decision. Usman went on a seven-fight win streak and earned a championship opportunity against then-champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 235. The 34-year-old dominated Woodley and won the belt, which has been successfully defended five times against the aforementioned Covington (x2), Jorge Masvidal (x2) and Gilbert Burns in recent appearances.

The loss to Usman was the last time Edwards suffered defeat inside the Octagon. Since then, he went 8-0 against notable names such as Vicente Luque, Donald Cerrone and Rafael dos Anjos. Unfortunately, the Birmingham native had his career derailed for nearly two years because of a worldwide pandemic, numerous fight cancelations and a severe case of COVID-19. When it finally resumed, his return was marred after an accidental eye poke against Belal Muhammad at UFC Vegas 21 led to a No Contest.

Wolves 135, Thunder 105: Well, That Was Fun

  Wolves 135, Thunder 105: Well, That Was Fun Timberwolves steamroll Thunder on the road in a concentrated, four-quarter effort to get back in striking distance of .500The Wolves avenged their lazy effort in the middle of Wednesday’s game that allowed the Thunder to crawl back from down 20, by doing the opposite tonight. A perfect Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell first quarter plunged the team into a 41-point second quarter, and the rest was history. The Wolves never scored below 30 a quarter tonight.

Edwards still campaigned for a shot against Usman despite the outcome but did not receive it. Instead, he fought again and earned a unanimous decision over Nate Diaz at UFC 263 this past June. Edwards was then expected to settle a grudge with Masvidal in his next outing, but that was canceled after ‘Gamebred’ withdrew due to an injury. The 30-year-old opted to sit and wait for Usman, a tactic often met with mixed results. It worked this time and Edwards will now get his due.
