UFC 268

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., on Sat., Nov. 6, 2021, with a pair of incredible world championship rematches. Headlining the UFC 268 pay-per-view (PPV) event will be dominant Welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, defending his title once again against his arch enemy and No. 1-ranked contender, Colby Covington. In the co-main event, women’s Strawweight queenpin, Rose Najamunas, will look to prove that her first round destruction of former champion and No. 1-seeded contender, Zhang Weili, earlier this year was no fluke. And last, but certainly not last, UFC 268 will feature "The People's Main Event" between top-ranked Lightweight knockout artists Justin Gaethje (No. 2) and Michael Chandler (No. 4), both of whom are looking to advance in the 155-pound title chase. We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 268 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "The Big Apple" right here before, during and well after the ESPN+-streamed live show concludes.
