New, comments

Scores will be settled at the UFC 268 pay-per-view (PPV) event this Sat. (Nov. 6) inside “The World’s Most Famous Arena.” That’s where UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman defends his 170-pound title against bitter rival Colby Covington. Before that five-round headliner gets underway, Zhang Weili gets a chance to prove her Rose Namajunas loss was a fluke by reclaiming her crown at the expense of “Thug,” a 25-minute affair that will get the strawweight division back on course. Big fights in the “Big Apple!”
