Also on the Main card is
- Rafael dos Anjos vs. Renato Moicano
- Edson Barboza vs. Bryce Mitchell
Covington vs. Masvidal
For the main event, Colby Covington (16-3-0) will be fighting against Jorge Masvidal (35-15-0) in the Welterweight division. Covington and Masvidal have some rivalry, having once trained at American Top Team. Though Covington eventually left in 2020 after a public feud and years of trash talking.
Both Covington and Masvidal have unsuccessfully challenged Kamaru Usman twice for the championship. Though Covington is the only interim titleholder between the two. Though Masvidal should be more than a challenge for Covington. Masvidal has more MMA experience and holds the record for the fastest UFC knockout against Ben Askren in 2019.
Parimatch’s UFC odds has predicted a win for Covington
- Colby Covington Win 2/7
- Jorge Masvidal Win 13/5
Dos Anjos vs. Moicano
A catchweight bout between Former Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos (30-13-0) and fellow Brazilian fighter Renato Moicano (16-4-1). Dos Anjos was originally scheduled to fight Rafael Fiziev, though Fiziev was forced to withdraw due to testing positive for COVID.
Dos Anjos is predicted to win but Moicano won’t be an easy match
- Rafael dos Anjos Win 23/40
- Renato Moicano Win 7/5
Barboza vs. Mitchell
Edson Barboza (22-10-0) will be fighting against Bryce Mitchell (14-0-0) in a featherweight bout. Mitchell may be undefeated but is nearly 10 years younger than Barbosa and has far less professional fighting experience. Both fighters have different styles, Mitchell is known for his grappling coming from a wrestling background while Barboza’s background is Muay Thai kickboxing and will strike more aggressively.
It looks pretty evenly matched between the two fighters but odds favor a win for Mitchell
- Bryce Mitchell Win 8/13
- Edson Barboza Win 11/8
