Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington 2 live fight updates, results, highlights from UFC 268

Must read


It has been nearly two years since the last time Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington stepped into the Octagon against one another.

After months of bad blood between the two, they each had the chance to put their grievances with one another on the mat. And on Dec. 14, 2019, it was Usman, winning by a fifth-round TKO that ended the match and defended his title of UFC Welterweight Champion.

These two fighters will head into the Octagon once more on Saturday, with Usman putting his title and 14-fight winning streak on the line against Covington. Since beating Covington, Usman has won three fights, one by KO, another by TKO and another by decision. His most recent fight came against Jorge Masvidal, when he won by knockout on April 24, 2021.

Covington has fought just once since that December 2019 clash, squaring off against Tyron Woodley on Sept. 19, 2020. He beat Woodley by TKO in five rounds.
