UFC 245 Preview

Kamaru Usman will put his welterweight title on the line against Colby Covington in the main event.

Usman claimed the belt in March, dominating Tyron Woodley en route to a unanimous-decision victory at UFC 235.

Predictably, Covington has spent much of the lead-up to the fight attempting to antagonize his opponent. He’s repeatedly mocked the 2018 death of Glenn Robinson, the founder of the Blackzilians, Usman’s former team. He’s also accused Usman of doping.

“There’s definitely bad blood in that one,” UFC president Dana White told Yahoo Sports. “And that fight’s as legit as legit can be. You got two of the best in the world, in their prime, and stylistically, the way that these two match up, they both fight exactly the same way. When you look at the stats, when you lay out the stats, they’re literally even. So it’s a great fight. I love that fight.”

He added: “It’s a great fight. Both guys are in their prime, both guys are truly two of the best in the world at that weight class right now.”

At Thursday’s UFC 245 media day, Usman indicated that he’s relishing the rivalry with Covington, comparing it to UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov’s bitter feud with former two-weight champ Conor McGregor.

“It’s very rare that you get a fight like this,” Usman said, according to MMA Junkie. “It’s very rare that you’re put in a position like this.

“There are a lot of fighters that fight all through their career and they never get put into ‘that’ fight. They never find that right dance partner to propel them, (like) Conor-Khabib. Look at Khabib now. They never get that to propel them to that point. This is that fight for me. It’s very exciting. I welcome it and I can’t wait.”

The event will feature two other title fights: Max Holloway will seek a fourth defense of his featherweight belt, against Alexander Volkanovski, and two-weight champ Amanda Nunes will seek a fifth defense of her bantamweight title, against Germaine de Randamie.
