The UFC returns to Madison Square Garden in New York City for a loaded UFC 268 that will be headlined by a grudge match between UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and rival Colby Covington.
The card will also featured a UFC women’s strawweight title bout between champion Rose Namajunas and former titleholder Weili Zhang as well as a mouth-watering lightweight battle that is sure to provide fireworks between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler.
Usman returns to action with a familiar face across the Octagon in Covington. The last time these two met, it was one of the most exciting welterweight title fights in recent memory that saw Usman emerge victorious with a fifth-round stoppage. But the bad blood hasn’t subsided between the two and they’ll meet again to put an end to their rivalry once and for all.
The champion has been on a tear as of late with knockouts in three of his last four fights. He viciously knocked out Jorge Masvidal in his last outing and aims to finish Covington a second time in NYC. Covington has only had one fight since losing to Usman and thoroughly dominated Tyron Woodley with a fifth-round stoppage.
Both promise to finish what they started on November 6.
Below is a full rundown of the schedule for UFC 268, with details on the fight matchups, start times, odds and more for the welterweight title rematch between Usman and Covington.
