UFC 268: Usman vs. Covington 2 fight card

Check out the fight card for next weekend’s return to PPV.

On the heels of an excellent UFC 267 event in Abu Dhabi, the promotion will return to New York City and to PPV with next weekend’s UFC 268 show. The card will feature two title fights on top, and a battle between two of the best lightweights in the world.

In the main event, Colby Covington will get his second shot at rival Kamaru Usman’s welterweight title. They first competed at UFC 235, where Usman stopped Covington in the fifth round. In another rematch, the co-main event will feature a strawweight title fight between Rose Namajunas and Zhang Weili. Thug Rose took Weili’s title with a 78-second head kick KO victory back in April, and Weili is being given the first shot to regain her belt.

Then there’s the battle between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler. That’s a pretty great fight.

Here’s a look at the current card for the November 6th event in Madison Square Garden.
