Just before we head to the main card, here is somme more reaction from the heavyweight bout earlier this evening.

Daniel Omielanczuk: “He was better than me in the clinch tonight so I agree with the judges' decision. He was able to use his weight to keep me on the fence. That was obviously his game plan and it worked out for him. Next time, I know that I need to fight much better."

Tim Johnson:¬†‚ÄúI feel pretty good. After they announced 29-28 for Daniel and 30-27 for me, I was getting a flashback from my fight with Volkov in November and so I was expecting the worst, but I got the result I was looking for. It‚Äôs nice to get back in the win column, especially now with only one fight left on my contract and it means I‚Äôm a little less stressed about what will happen in the future. I want to stay here in the UFC. This is where the best fighters are in the world. Why would I want to be anywhere else?‚ÄĚ

Here's some reaction to Leon Edwards' hard-fought win over Vicente Luque

Leon Edwards:¬†‚ÄúIt was a good fight. I knew Luque was going to be tough. I had to match him for power and toughness. I was in the stands here a few years ago saying ‚ÄėI want to fight in the UFC in this arena‚Äô so tonight is a dream come true for me. I‚Äôve been watching Cowboy over the years and I like the way my style matches up with his. I would love to challenge myself against him."

Vicente Luque: “I’m feeling very mad that I lost the fight but I think the judges thought that he controlled the floor more than I did. That’s why I think he won the fight. He had great stand up and he had good timing. In the last two rounds I was able to try my hands more but he was controlling me on the ground. I want to get back home, recover from this defeat, get back into training and come back and fight again. I know that I’m a tough fighter in this division and I know I’m going to come back stronger and make a claim for the title."

Brad Scott: “It was a tough fight. I got tired. I could have pushed the pace a bit more and I wish I could have got the finish but I enjoyed it. I was so close to giving up fighting. It’s been an emotional year but I’m back. I can’t give it up. I finally won in London, in one of the biggest indoor arenas in the world. It’s one of the greatest feelings of my life, especially since I was so close to giving it all up." 

 

Scott Askham: “It was a close fight, I’m not going to say I was robbed, as it could have gone either way. We both lined clean shots and we both hurt each other. He knocked me down in the first round but I think I did enough to win the next two rounds but you could argue he deserved to win those two. Obviously I’m very disappointed and there are no excuses. I put my heart and soul into this camp but credit to Bradley Scott, he went in there and got the victory."
