The UFC returns to New York City for the first time in two years on Saturday with UFC 268 at Madison Square Garden. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNNews and ESPN+.
A pair of championship rematches headline the card. In the main event, Kamaru Usman (19-1 MMA, 14-0 UFC) puts his welterweight championship on the line for the fifth time in a highly anticipated grudge match with rival Colby Covington (16-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC), whom he beat by fifth-round TKO at UFC 245 in December 2019.
The co-headline will see Rose Namajunas (10-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) attempt to make the first defense in her second strawweight title reign when she clashes with Zhang Weili (21-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC), whom she took the belt from by 78-second knockout at UFC 261 in April.
