The poster has been revealed for UFC 272, which is scheduled to see a heated rivalry finally play out in the main event.
Check out the poster for the event below:
Both Covington and Masvidal competed in title fight rematches against Kamaru Usman in their most recent appearances. Covington dropped a competitive unanimous decision at UFC 268, while Masvidal was knocked out in the second round by Usman at UFC 261 this past April.
“Gamebred” will look to return to his 2019 form where he emerged as of the sport’s biggest superstars following stoppage wins over Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz. Covington, a former interim champion, has won his last eight fights that weren’t against Usman, which includes wins over Rafael dos Anjos, Robbie Lawler, and Demian Maia.
Check out the current UFC 272 fight card below (bout order still to be determined):
(#2) Colby Covington vs. (#11) Jorge Masvidal
Nick Negumereanu vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu
Dustin Jacoby vs. Michał Oleksiejczuk
