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!

Pereira had to show a little more than just his striking in early going as Michailidis pinned him up against the cage and tried to take him down. “Poatan” didn’t easily keep Michailidis off of him, but he did good enough to limit any damage. At the start of Round 2 Pereira launched a devastating flying knee that caught Michailidis flush on the chin. Michailidis fell to the canvas and Pereira followed for a few extra shots before the official stoppage.
