Leon Edwards headlines the UFC Fight Night 171 event in London's 02 Arena on March 21. He takes on Tyron Woodley in a welterweight fight.

Edwards told Business Insider this week that, should he win, then he will be campaigning for an immediate title shot.

The current champion, Kamaru Usman, defends the belt against Jorge Masvidal in Las Vegas this summer. Both fighters have a history with Edwards.

Usman is the last man to beat Edwards in the Octagon, while Masvidal appeared to throw punches at him backstage at a UFC London event last year. Edwards wants revenge.
