The poster for the next UFC 268 event: Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington 2 next month was officially revealed by the UFC.
UFC 268 is set to take place on November 6 at Madison Square Garden in New York, New York, and the world’s leading MMA promotion has brought a stacked card with it. In the main event, Usman meets Covington in a rematch. These two met two years ago in the main event of UFC 245 and Usman won the fifth via TKO in the fifth round. The rematch is highly anticipated and it should be a phenomenal fight for as long as it lasts. In addition to the rematch between Usman and Covington, there is also a rematch in the main co-event between UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and her rival Weili Zhang. With UFC 268 just around the corner, the organization unveiled the official poster for the event.

In addition to Usman vs. Covington 2 and Namajunas vs. Zhang 2, there are a number of other impressive fights at UFC 268. Also on the main card is a light fight between top contenders Justin Gaethje and Michael. Chandler which should be a fantastic battle. Additionally, Luke Rockhold takes on Sean Strickland in a fight between middleweight contenders, and local Frankie Edgar returns to the Octagon when he takes on the soaring Marlon Vera.
The preliminary card for UFC 268 also appears to be stacked. You’d think a card with Usman vs. Covington 2 and all those other big main card fights would have a weaker prelims set, but the UFC is pushing hard for its return to New York. Quality fights such as Al Iaquinta against Bobby Green and Alex Pereira against Andreas Michailidis are scheduled for the preliminaries.
Are you excited for the next pay-per-view UFC 268 with Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington rematch in the main event of the night?
