UFC 272: Covington vs Masvidal airs live on pay-per-view from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday March 5, which makes it Sunday March 6 in the UK and Australia. The fight card features a series of MMA bouts with the “Grudge Match” headlining the show.
In the main event former interim 170-pound champion Colby Covington goes up against fellow former undisputed title challenger and former teammate Jorge Masvidal. The pair squares off in the scheduled for five rounds bout at welterweight.
In his previous outing last November Colby Covington (16-3) made the second attempt to claim UFC gold when he faced reigning champion Kamaru Usman in the rematch, but fell short dropping a unanimous decision. Prior to that he took the win against the division’s former champion Tyron Woodley by TKO in the fifth round.
Jorge Masvidal (35-15) was in action last August when he was KO’d by Usman in the second round of their championship rematch, and collected the second defeat in a row. Before that he stopped Nate Diaz, Ben Askren and Darren Till.
