A rivalry years in the making will come to a head this Saturday night as welterweight contenders and former friends Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal square off.
Tasked with headlining UFC 272, the clash of styles and bad blood between the two should combine for an entertaining fight but the headline act does bear the load of a somewhat disappointing undercard.
While the chance to see Rafael dos Anjos and Edson Barboza compete is always a welcome one for long-time fans of the sport, the PPV event isn’t quite as stacked as you’d expect for a fight card that doesn’t boast a title fight.
