One of the UFC's most bitter rivalries resumes on Saturday night as welterweight king Kamaru Usman defends his title against arch nemesis Colby Covington at the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York.

Having stopped Covington in the fifth round of an absolute barnburner the last time these two fighters met in December 2019, Usman will be out to prove that victory was no fluke against one of the most divisive characters in combat sports.
