ROUND ONE: Edwards lands left hand!
Confidence-boosting start for Leon Edwards as he lands a nice shot with his left hand.
Kamaru Usman swings with a leg kick but misses but both are just sizing each other up in these early stages.
Good right hand by Usman followed up by a jab but two heavy kicks by Edwards has Usman unsteady on his feet and the crowd roar with encouragement. Those definitely hurt him.
Superb start by Edwards who clearly unsettled Usman with some heavy body kicks. Close round but Edwards looked to have edged it.
