UFC 268 goes down tonight from inside New York’s Madison Square Garden, and MixedMartialArts.com will be in the building to provide live coverage. In this space, we will be posting post-fight videos of the triumphant combatants from the various matchups on the stacked card.
The highly-anticipated event is headlined by two massive championship rematches. In the co-main event, strawweight queen Rose Namajunas will defend her title for the first time [in her second reign] against former champ Zhang Weili in a redux of their UFC 261 fight from April.
In the headliner, the greatest welterweight title fight in UFC history will get a sequel when 170-pound king Kamaru Usman goes to war with long-time rival, and former interim champion Colby Covington.
The card also features a major matchup in the lightweight division. As two-time Bellator lightweight champion, Michael Chandler battles former interim lightweight titlist Justin Gaethje in a booking that could decide the new top contender at 155 pounds. Furthermore, in a scrap that could steal the show, all-action featherweights Shane Burgos and Billy Quarantillo will face off in a main card matchup with “fight of the night” potential.
UFC 268 kicks of with early preliminary action at 6 pm ET on ESPN+. The core prelim fights begin at 8 pm ET on ESPN News and ESPN+. The pay-per-view main card follows at 10 pm ET exclusively on the ESPN streaming service.
