UFC 268 Odds: Usman vs. Covington 2

This weekend is UFC  268 taking place at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. At this event two Championship titles rematches are scheduled.

The current Welterweight Champion, Karau Usman, faces a challenge from the former interim champ, Colby Covington. While, the two-time Women’s Strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas, is facing another challenge from another former champion Zhang Weili.

UFC 268 originally had a different set of matches lined up, but has been plagued by fighters pulling out due to injuries. Former Feather champion Germain de Randamie was planning to stage her comeback against Irene Aldana but pulled out due to injury. Middleweight champion, Luke Rockhold, was also expected to defend his title but had withdrew due to herniated disc. To name but a few.

Also fighting on the Main card are:

  • Frankie Edgar vs. Marlon Vera in the Bantamweight
  • Shane Burgos vs. Billy Quarantillo in the Featherweight
  • Justin Gaethje vs. Michael Chandler in the Lightweight

 Usman vs. Covington 2

Kamaru Usman (19-1-0) has not had any losses in the UFC, his only loss was in 2013 in the CFA. While Colby Covington (18-2-0) has a similar amount of wins, he has 2 losses on his record, with the most recent being Usman.

Despite both fighters having won gold medals in wrestling outside of MMA, Usman won their previous match through offensive strikes, knocking Covington down twice and was declared the winner in the fifth round at UFC 245 in 2019.

Parimatch’s MMA odds suggests that Usman will win and remain as the Welterweight Champion

  • Kamaru Usman 1/3
  • Colby Covington 9/4

Namajunas vs. Weili 2

Current Women’s Strawweight Champion, Rose Namajunas (10-4-0), has less MMA experience than former champion and challenger Zhang Weili (21-2-0). Weili more MMA wins in and only one loss in the UFC.

Namajunas surprised everyone defeating Weili in a first-round knockout head kick, back in April at UFC 261 which was easily the match of the night.

It’s too close to call. Both fighters are evenly matched but Weili will wanting revenge to reclaim her title.

  • Zhang Weili 4/5
  • Rose Namajunas 1/1
