One of the loudest UFC events of the calendar is set for tomorrow night. UFC 272 is headlined by Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal, two figures who aren’t afraid to go low in order to sell a fight or put their opponent off their game.
Their welterweight contest could put either man in position to fight for the title for a third time. Both have failed in two previous attempts to unseat current champ, and top ranked men’s pound-for-pound fighter, Kamaru Usman.
The co-main event was supposed to be Rafael dos Anjos vs. Rafael Fiziev. However, Fiziev has come down with COVID-19. So Renato Moicano gets in here as the super late replacement. Also on the PPV card is Edson Barboza vs. Bryce Mitchell, Kevin Holland vs. Alex Oliveira and Sergey Spivak vs. Greg Hardy.
The prelims feature a grudge match between Maryna Moroz and Mariya Agapova. Also on the prelims is Marina Rodriguez vs. Xiaonan Yan. The early prelims are headlined by Umar Nurmagomedov vs. Brian Kelleher.
