CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York City with a compelling pair of world championship rematches on Sat., Nov. 6, 2021. Headlining UFC 268’s blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) will be Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman as he looks to defend his title once again against arch enemy and No. 1-ranked contender, Colby Covington. The co-main event will see UFC women’s Strawweight queenpin, Rose Najamunas, aim to make it two in a row against former champion and No. 1-seeded contender, Zhang Weili.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

This “Prelims” clash started out sort of slow as both fighters tried to find their range. Villante was more patient than usual, but he didn’t land much. It allowed Barnett to find his rhythm and launch a ridiculous spinning wheel kick in the second round. The kick caught Villante on the top of the head and the New York native fell to the canvas. Barnett followed up with a barrage of strikes before the referee stepped in for the TKO stoppage.
