Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is roughly 24 hours away from its UFC 245 pay-per-view (PPV) event, going down tomorrow night (Sat., Dec. 14, 2019) on ESPN+ from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Leading the charge will be the welterweight title fight pitting newly crowned 170-pound champion, Kamaru Usman, opposite division No. 1 contender, Colby Covington.
That’s just one of three championship fights scheduled for the UFC 245 fight card, as reigning featherweight kingpin, Max Holloway, looks to quell the uprising of streaking 145-pound stalwart, Alexander Volkanovski. In addition, bantamweight bruisers Amanda Nunes and Germaine de Randamie stage their long overdue rematch with “Lioness” putting her 135-pound title on the line.
