Leon Edwards x Uniform Wares – Meet Our New Ambassador!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that MMA fighter Leon Edwards has become a brand ambassador for Uniform Wares!

As a brand, we believe that good watches should embody character and distinction. We have worked hard to turn heads in this notoriously conservative watch industry and needed a like minded individual to work with us. 

Edwards believes that success in any field can very much be attributed to hard work, tenacity and the ability to maintain a positive outlook. It was a no brainer, Edwards was the perfect ambassador for our brand.

Who Is Leon Edwards?

Leon Edwards is a 29-year-old British MMA fighter who has been swiftly rising through the rankings. 

He has been a professional competitor since 2011 and formerly competed for BAMMA, where he was the BAMMA Welterweight Champion.

Edwards is currently rated as the best welterweight in the UFC, and has been a hugely successful story since arriving. 

He will be wearing a Uniform Wares watch for his next big upcoming fight in Vegas, and we can’t wait to see it. 

Upcoming Fight In Vegas

A welterweight bout between Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad is expected to serve as the main event at the UFC Fight Night on March 13 2021.

UFC Fight Night is a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship. It is due to take place at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas. 

Edwards had originally planned to face Khamzat Chimaev three times, but saw each fight cancelled as a result of Covid-19 and Chimaev eventually withdrew. 

Muhammad stepped in after a four-fight win streak, which includes a decision win over Dhiego Lima. 

Leon Edwards, meanwhile, has won eight in a row and is the no.1 ranked welterweight in the UFC. He has been on a tear, and hasn’t lost a bout in four years. 

Edwards said, “Respect for Belal for stepping up when no one else would. March 13 I show I am the best in the world”

2021 promises to be a breakout year for Leon “Rocky” Edwards, and we can’t wait to see the UK’s hottest MMA take center stage.

Leon’s Style

When out of his fighting gear, Edwards sports a minimalist flair. Even when heavily accessorised or embellished, his look still retains an inherent minimalism that transcends his style. 

Having a minimalistic look gives you the chance to focus on quality, and really get to know what pieces work with your body. That’s why we’re very excited to work with fitness fanatic Leon Edwards. 

We continue to maintain our tradition in keeping our watches minimalist. Our designs symbolise extremes – all or nothing – and represent strength, power, sophistication and authority. Absolutely perfect for an MMA superstar like Edwards.
