Colby Covington will challenge Kamaru Usman once again for the UFC welterweight title in the main event of UFC 268 this Saturday at Madison Square Garden. This week on Between the Links, it’s an opening round matchup in the coveted BTL championship tournament and that massive main event will be discussed, along with Rose Namajunas vs. Zhang Weili, the stakes in the Justin Gaethje vs. Michael Chandler main card opener, Glover Teixeira’s light heavyweight title win at UFC 267 and if a long reign is a possibility, Petr Yan’s interim title win over Cory Sandhagen, where Islam Makhachev should be ranked at 155, and more.

Host Mike Heck will oversee the verbal battle between MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin and Alexander K. Lee as they battle it out for a spot in the semi-finals.

Watch the show live at 3 p.m. ET / Noon PT in the video above.
