Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington will finally be locked in a cage again later this evening (Sat., Nov. 6, 2021) at UFC 268 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City. The two fighters will collide in a rematch two years in the making for the undisputed UFC welterweight title.
Before Usman and Covington settle their beef in the main event, UFC 268 will feature one of the most stacked cards of year. Rose Namajunas will defend her women’s strawweight title in a co-main event rematch with Zhang Weili, Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler will collide in a lightweight barn burner to spark the PPV main card, and Frankie Edgar will return to action against bantamweight contender Marlon Vera. Not to mention the nine-fight “Prelims” card featuring some of the most exciting up-and-coming strikers in the promotion today.
We will compile the best of the best below — with all video footage courtesy of UFC and ESPN — and will continue to share the action as it rolls in. Enjoy!
