UFC 268 fight week time!
Yeah that’s a quick turnaround for numbered events, isn’t it? We got to enjoy a non-PPV big show last weekend, but now we kick off November with a regular pay-per-view on the 6th. There are two title fights this Saturday night, headlined by a welterweight championship rematch between bitter rivals Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. Usman defeated Covington by fifth-round TKO in their first meeting at UFC 245 in 2019 in what was Kamaru’s first title defense. The co-main is a women’s strawweight title immediate rematch, as champion Rose Namajunas takes on Zhang Weili a mere six months after Rose knocked Zhang out in just 78 seconds to become champion again.
As usual, when it’s a pay-per-view week it gets the Countdown treatment. You can watch the full Countdown to UFC 268 video at the top of the page. You’ll get the two title fights as well as the three-round lightweight classic in the making between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler.
UFC 268 takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, with the usual main card start time of 10 PM ET/7 PM PT.
