UFC268: Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington 2




Opening November, UFC 268 brought to the world MMA village two matches for the title, both of which were rematches.  








At welterweight, defending champion Kamaru Usman entered his fifth title defense since taking the throne against rival Colby Covington.  

This is the second encounter since Kamaru Usman's technical knockout victory at the end of 2019.

In the main match, strawweight queen Rose Namajunas entered the title defense with former king Weili Zhang - who just lost the title at UFC 261 in April.

In addition to two pairs of titles, the competition of two Top 5 lightweight candidates Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler was also added to increase the attractiveness of the event.  

Besides, boxers Shane Burgos, Frankie Edgar, Al Iaquinta, former Kickboxing world champion Alex Pereira are also notable names of this night.

UFC 268 is led by a charming rematch between defending UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and his 2019 knockout opponent, Colby Covington.

Entering the 5th title defense in his career, Usman faces the task of keeping 14 consecutive wins in the UFC, 18 consecutive victories on the MMA floor. And the one who stood in his way, was once again his rival "Chaos" Colby Covington, the only boxer who had ever matched the champion in nearly 5 rounds. 

In the main match, women's strawweight champion Rose Namajunas will defend her title after her second title at UFC 261 against the same former champion she just claimed, Weili Zhang. With the first match going so quickly with just over 1 minute, the rematch is expected to have more remarkable developments than before.
