UFC 245 Preview
In the main event, Kamaru Usman will put his newly claimed welterweight belt on the line against Colby Covington.
Usman, who hasn’t lost since the second fight of his professional career in 2013, took the title from Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 in March, winning via unanimous decision. He recently claimed that he nearly walked away from the sport in early 2018.
“I was very close,” Usman told the TSN MMA Show, according to MMA Mania.
He added: “I had like maybe five, actually, six or seven months of just sitting there trying to get somebody to fight me. The organization kept saying, ‘That guy turned it down, that guy turned it down.’ So I was just like, there is no point.”
Usman added that Covington was among the fighters to opt against battling him.
“And part of that is the opponent that I’m fighting,” he said, per MMA Mania. “He has been offered to me several times, four times to be exact, and he’s turned them all down. So this is part of what contributed to my frustration at that point. So I was like, I should just walk.”
Before Usman and Covington square off, Max Holloway will look to keep his featherweight belt against Alexander Volkanovski. Before that, Amanda Nunes, the reigning women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion, will seek her fifth defense of the bantamweight belt.
She claimed the title at UFC 200 in July 2016, submitting Miesha Tate via rear-naked choke. Her first defense came against Ronda Rousey five months later.
Nunes recently recalled watching Rousey best Liz Carmouche in the UFC’s first women’s fight back in February 2013.
“When I saw that fight, the first thing I thought is I’m gonna kick [Rousey’s] ass,” Nunes said, according to ESPN. “That was the main thing. But I was very happy about the moment. It was a huge moment for all of us. But in that moment, [I thought], I’m gonna be the champion in the UFC. I’m gonna beat her in the future.”
