And here we are again …. Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman, who are set to headline UFC 268 tonight (Sat., Nov. 6, 2021) inside Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.
Now, my personal feelings aside, this is going be an interesting rematch. Outside of the fact that Covington’s jaw fractured harder than the New York Mets hopes of a World Series past mid-July, since said cracking of said jaw, Usman has defeated Gilbert Burns and Jorge Masvidal … twice. Meanwhile, Covington has faced *reads notes* Tyron Woodley, who most recently lost to Jake Paul, and has not competed in the 14 months since.
And then we have the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) co-headliner, a rematch between Rose Namajunas and Zhang Weili and all of the fun jingoism going on there aside, will be one heck of a fight between two of the most dangerous humans to ever walk into a cage.
UFC 268’s PPV main card is high on drama and high on action and I will be buzzed for most (if not all) of it. So, join me, Shak and Steph (Brendan is headed to Miami, Fla., to act in a stage reading) for all of the main card action as we try to figure out why the hell someone booked a Canelo fight against a blockbuster UFC card .... again!
