Usman defends his welterweight title against Covington a second time in a rematch of their thrilling UFC 245 encounter that Usman won via TKO with less than a minute remaining in the fifth and final round.
In the co-main event, Namajunas meets Zhang in an immediate rematch of their UFC 261 championship match this past April. Namajunas defeated Zhang by knockout in just 78 seconds to reclaim the UFC strawweight title. Zhang was on a 21-fight win streak prior to the loss.
