Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington 2 set for UFC 268 in November



Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington are set to put an end to their feud at UFC 268 in November.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President, Dana White, broke the news to Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the promotion’s official broadcast partner. No date or venue has been finalized; however, White said the event will take place in New York, where some people have been visiting Canadian slots . It is rumored that a Nov. 6, 2021, booking at Madison Square Garden appears to be in UFC’s sights.

Usman (19-1) is undefeated dating back to his second professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fight back in May 2013. His UFC Welterweight championship legacy is marked by wins over Jorge Masvidal (twice), Gilbert Burns, Covington and Tyron Woodley. He most recently knocked out Masvidal in the second round of their clash at UFC 261 on April 24.

Covington (19-2) is 4-1 in his last five fights with the lone loss coming via fifth-round technical knockout in a competitive fight against Usman (watch here) at UFC 245 in Dec. 2019. Most recently, “Chaos” beat Woodley via fifth-round TKO (injury) on Sept. 19, 2020. His hit list includes Robbie Lawler, dos Anjos and Demian Maia.

Usman has opened up as the favourite in this bout. More info to follow soon.
