Snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan joins Hollywood star Tom Holland and KSI at UFC 286 in London for Edwards vs Usman
THE stars were out in full force as the UFC returned to London for a massive pay-per-view title fight.
Britain’s Leon Edwards defends his welterweight belt in an immediate rematch against Kamaru Usman just six months after his head kick KO.
The UFC returned to England for their first PPV since Michael Bisping defeated Dan Henderson in 2016.
And the stars came for the occasion with names from the Hollywood and sports world.
Actors Jason Statham, Tom Holland, Miles Teller and Jared Leto were all spotted on the edge of the cage enjoying themselves.
So did snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan and boxer-turned-YouTube KSI.
UFC superstar Conor McGregor announced he would make a shock appearance – but ultimately didn’t show up.
UFC heavyweight Tom Aspinall was on panditry duty for BT Box Office and challenged champion Edwards to take it all in.
He said: “I would just tell him to take it in and enjoy. You don’t get many of these opportunities.
“It’s a big deal for the main event in your home country, it’s huge.

“And to have your home fans on your side, you might [only] you get two, three or four chances to do this in your entire career.
“So get out there and enjoy it, just like any fight. It is no different from your other fights. Take it for what it is, it’s just a fight.
“Everyone is there who you love, so try to enjoy this time. Don’t put yourself under too much pressure and enjoy it.”
