Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington full fight video preview for UFC 245 PPV main event

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just hours away from its most stacked fight card of the year, featuring a championship tripleheader available only by way of ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) TONIGHT (Sat., Dec. 14, 2019) 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.

Usman (15-1) hasn’t competed since dethroning Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 earlier this year in Las Vegas, thanks to an injury timeout that seemed to stretch on forever. In his absence, Covington (15-1) accepted a Robbie Lawler fight on ESPN and scored a dominant unanimous decision win over the “Ruthless” veteran. They were originally expected to throw down at UFC 244 in New York; however, contract negotiations delayed their inevitable showdown to December.
