Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards will face off in London on Saturday night in a trilogy fight that is set to be the biggest in British MMA history.
Usman, 35, won the first fight back in 2015 but was shocked by Edwards back in August as the Brit claimed the welterweight title in stunning fashion.
All eyes will be on the O2 Arena this weekend with both fighters likely to take home a generous purse. Usman is believed to have received around £415,000 for the rematch last year, while Edwards pocketed close to £290,000 – not including fight bonuses.

But both fighter's net worths do not see them anywhere near the top 20 richest stars in the sport – and Usman even trails stunning ring girl Arianny Celeste.
The American is believed to have net worth of around £2.5m after an impressive career in UFC, having also starred in Hollywood blockbuster Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
But Celeste, who has emerged as the richest ring girl in the sport, is thought to trump the fighter with a net worth of £2.8m.
The 37-year-old has become a huge star in the sport during her 16-year career and has even been involved in spats with the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Ronda Rousey. She has previously posed for the likes of Playboy and Sports Illustrated and was voted UFC's 'Hottest Ocatgon Girl' back in 2010.
Hitting back at critics, she said recently: "I’ve been in this industry for over 15 years, and I’ve worked my a** off to be where I am in life. “I have an OnlyFans that makes me money. I also put my money into real estate that makes me equity. It’s about really hustling in the position you’re given."
She regularly wows her 3.2m followers with steamy pics on Instagram and now has an OnlyFans page, where she treats subscribers to exclusive content.
It is unclear if the self-proclaimed 'hottest MILF of UFC' will be in London for this weekend's blockbuster card but Usman has vowed to reclaim his title, insisting he is the better fighter.
"When I get in there and fight these guys, I'm not fighting their skills – I fight guys with better boxing, better kickboxing, maybe better wrestling credentials – but it doesn't matter, it's about how you mix it up," he told Sky Sports.
"That's the beautiful thing about this sport, it's called mixed martial arts and I don't think there's anybody in the world that agrees that's he's better at MMA than I am."
