The UFC is in Madison Square Garden this weekend with a stacked card topped by a pair of championship rematches. The UFC 268 main event is Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington 2 for Usman’s welterweight belt. The co-main sees Rose Namajunas put her strawweight title on the line versus Zhang Weili.
The main card also features a banger between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler. There’s also former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar taking on Marlon Vera and Shane Burgos facing Billy Quarantillo.
The prelim card is headlined by Andreas Michailidis vs. Alex Pereira. There’s also Al Iaquinta vs. Bobby Green and Phil Hawes vs. Bobby Green. Among the early prelims is a heavyweight bout between Gian Villante and Chris Barnett.
Of course, before any of these fights happen the competitors will need to make it through the weigh-ins. And with the two fights on top, none of the fighters will be given an extra pound allowance.
