UFC 268, which will be held this Saturday (06), will have all the ingredients that fight fans like: rivalry, title fight and rematch.
 
The event, which will be played at the historic Madison Square Garden in New York City, will feature a title fight between Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington. They have already faced each other in 2019, with Usman having won, and this will be the Nigerian's fifth title defense.
 
Another fight worth the belt will be at the women's strawweight, where Rose Namajunas will face off against Zhang Weili again, after the two faced each other in April of this year. Namajunas got the better of that day and is the current owner of the division.

Usman vs Covington

Sooner or later, every reign comes to an end. However, the Nigerian Kamaru Usman remains very firm to remain at the top of the category, as he will climb for the 5th time in the Octagon to defend his belt. The opponent is an old acquaintance, as Colby Covington was one of those challengers, losing the duel in 2019.
 
Usman's record is absurd, as he hasn't lost a fight in 8 years. In fact, this was his only career defeat. He proves to be extremely secure and confident in what he does, always defeating his opponents with dominance, regardless of whether it is by decision of the judges or by knockout.
 
But Covington is not just any opponent. He is at the top of the welterweight and has been defeated only twice in his entire professional career. In addition, he arrives with a taste for rematch, and extremely focused and motivated to take the reign of his rival. It will be difficult, but he promises to toughen up.
 
Bet: Usman wins by Decision or Technical Decision | @2.75 on Bet365

Rose Namajunas vs Weili Zhang

What a great fight! That's our expectation for the duel between these two great athletes.
 
The Chinese Zhang knows very well the taste of winning the belt, as until a few months ago she was the queen of the division. Everything was going well until Rose Namajunas crossed her path, stealing his kingdom. That way, we'll have another fight with bits of rivalry and rematch, and anything can happen, because the quality level of both is very similar.
 
American Rose should use her good jiu-jitsu, even though she has other specialties. She's good at knockout, and Weili will need to be focused. However, the Chinese's preparation has been very strong in recent months and she should have a very worthy fight.
 
Bet: Namajunas to win | @2.00 at Bet365
 

Shane Burgos vs Billy Quarantillo

Despite coming from defeats, Shane Burgos seems to be quite prepared for this new challenge, although hunches put Quarantillo with a likely advantage.
 
No wonder, since Billy is really a great fighter and has few losses in his career. In addition, he is very aggressive in blows, and his list of victories includes knockouts and some great performances.
 
Burgos, on the other hand, is looking to get back to a great start in the organization, which, added to other previous competitions, made the fighter reach 10 unbeaten matches. We believe that the American will come back strong tonight, returning to his good moment.
 
Bet: Burgos wins by Decision or Technical Decision | @2.80 on Bet365
