‘Countdown’ to UFC 272 full video replay | ‘Covington vs. Masvidal’

A long-awaited, highly-anticipated grudge match between former training partners-turned rivals, Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal, is set to headline UFC 272 this Saturday night (March 5, 2022) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two men have gone at each other over social media for some time now, at times hitting below the belt. But, that’s nothing new for Covington, who has made a career of getting under his foe’s skin. For Masvidal, getting a victory over “Chaos” is much-needed after dropping two straight to current champion Kamaru Usman. Speaking of which, the winner of the fight could get one step closer to earning another shot at the Welterweight title.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off its New Year pay-per-view (PPV) campaign on Sat., Jan. 21, 2023, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Glover Teixeira, looking to stop the momentum of surging No. 7-seeded up-and-comer, Jamahal Hill. In the co-main event of UFC 283, which will take place inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, one of the greatest rivalries in promotional history resumes as Flyweight kingpin, Deiveson Figueiredo, battles interim belt keeper, Brandon Moreno, for a fourth (and likely final) time.
