UFC fans shared their displeasure after the official poster for UFC 286 was unveiled

Fans shared their displeasure after the official poster for UFC 286 was unveiled. The event will take place at the O2 Arena in London, England, on Saturday, March 18.

The promotion received plenty of negative feedback for the poster as fans took to Twitter to troll them for their lack of creativity. The poster features both headlining bouts to resemble the British currency.

Fans wrote:

“This poster slaps, like your boss.” [@MonsterSquadFL – Twitter]

“Gotta be the worst poster I’ve ever seen” [@RanboGG – Twitter]

“It’s got some savage competition. Has any UFC poster ever been anything but arse?” [@GMCManning – Twitter]

“How is the artwork getting worse for these events” [@DHaavey – Twitter]

“this is a fkn trash poster homie” [@MysticMcOckky – Twitter]

While many fans trolled the promotion for the poster, there were also those that questioned why there wasn’t a poster poster released for the pay-per-view prior featuring the return of Jon Jones. They also questioned the lack of promotion for this weekend’s pay-per-view featuring a superfight between Alexander Volkanovski and Islam Makhachev.

How about promoting this weekend’s card instead? [@CaptainCrumbz – Twitter]

Leon Edwards set to make his first welterweight title defense at UFC 286

UFC 286 will be a special event for Leon Edwards as he is set to make his first welterweight title defense in his home country.

Edwards and Kamaru Usman will compete in their trilogy bout at the event and it will be interesting to see whether the outcome will be the same as their second bout last August. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ was ahead on the scorecards and was closing in on a successful title defense before ‘Rocky’ landed a head-kick that earned him a fifth-round knockout win and the welterweight championship.

Usman is motivated to regain the title, while Edwards will have an opportunity to prove that his win wasn’t lucky. Both fighters have split wins in their two bouts, so the trilogy will determine who the better fighter is.
