The Octagon returns to Las Vegas this evening for UFC 245, a thirteen-bout fight card headlined by a welterweight title fight between Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman.
Kamaru Usman (15-1 MMA) claimed the promotions welterweight title back at UFC 235, where he earned a lopsided decision victory over Tyron Woodley.
Meanwhile, Colby Covington (15-1 MMA) was last seen in action at August’s UFC Newark event, where he scored a dominant decision victory over former division kingpin Robbie Lawler.
‘Chaos’ and the ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ have a long standing rivalry so tonight’s main event should be highly entertaining.
In addition to Usman vs. Covington, UFC 245 also features two other championships fights.
Current promotional ‘champ champ’ Amanda Nunes will attempt to defend her women’s bantamweight title against former featherweight title holder Germaine de Randamie in tonight’s co-main attraction.
If that wasn’t enough, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway will put his title on the line against surging division contender Alex Volkanovski.
UFC 245 also features two exciting bantamweight bouts featuring Jose Aldo making his 135-pound debut opposite Marlon Moraes, as well as former WEC champion Urijah Faber taking on surging contender Petr Yan.
