The biggest card of the year delivered the biggest thrills as UFC 268 served up a night to remember at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
The main event between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington produced another super-competitive title fight, with Usman getting the nod on the scorecards, while Rose Namajunas did the same in her title rematch with Zhang Weill.
But this was a card that delivered from top to bottom, with some incredible highlights throughout the night.
The main card opened up the pay per view with a Fight of the Year contender, as Justin Gaethje outpointed Michael Chandler in a three-round thriller.
And the preliminary card delivered a feast of finishes, with SIX knockouts in a row, including Chris Curtis’ crowd-pleasing wheel-kick, Ian Garry’s eye-catching octagon debut and Alex Pereira’s scary arrival as a middleweight threat.
All in all, it was a big night in the Big Apple, and on this week’s episode of the show we go big as we recap a night full of high spots and hijinks.
