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!

The early going of this fight was a back-and-forth affair. Shahbazyan did his bidding with whipping leg kicks and good punches from range. Imavov was able to close the distance and lock the young middleweight up in a few tight chokes. Shahbazyan was able to defend nicely but ended up on his back during a final transition to the canvas. That’s when Imavov was able to position himself for the mounted crucifix and launch gnarly elbows for the bloody finish.
