Adli Edwards has a career-making opportunity at Bellator 277

Welcome to The Weekly Takedown, Sports Illustrated’s in-depth look at MMA. Each week this column provides insight and information on the most important stories in the fighting world.

Less than two weeks ago, Adly Edwards snatched his seventh straight win in the cage.

Absolutely technical, it took Josh Harvey just over four minutes to finish his XMMA 4 card opponent on April 2 in New Orleans – even less time than it took him to pack his bags for the trip.

After the fight, Edwards had one priority: getting home to his pregnant wife and their two daughters.

“We found out that my wife Maggie was literally pregnant the day before we had that fight,” Edwards said. “The first three months were tough for her, but she was very supportive during my training. This whole camp, I said, ‘Once this fight is over, it’s all about you.'”
