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!

Moreno looked incredible to start the first as he landed combinations moving forward, leg kicks, and a jab that knocked the champion to the ground. Figueiredo had trouble landing his own punches as he tried to load up on everything.

Figueiredo scored a much needed takedown to begin the second and he was able to land a bunch of hard elbows to Moreno’s body. Moreno regrouped to gain top control and scored valuable points on the champ. In the third, Moreno scored a beautiful takedown and quickly worked his way to Figueiredo’s back. Figueiredo tried to defend Moreno’s advancements but Moreno eventually snuck his arm under the chin of the champion and squeezed his way to a UFC title.
