UFC 272: Masvidal v Covington

Third time’s the charm,” or so the saying goes. Top welterweight contender Colby “Chaos” Covington would like the opportunity to test that notion in his pursuit for the title at 170lbs in the UFC. He’s had two cracks at the belt in the last three years, failing both times to snatch it from Kamaru Usman, the UFC’s top pound-for-pound fighter. First, however, Covington (16-3-0), needs to show he deserves another shot. He looks to make his case this Saturday, March 5, 2022, at UFC 272: Covington vs Masvidal.

UFC 272 full fight preview

Ranked No. 6 in the welterweight division, Jorege “ Gamebred” Masvidal (35-15-0) too is looking for his third shot at Usman’s championship, losing to him in his last two outings. Despite being top contenders, Masvidal and Covington will be meeting in the Octagon for the first time in Saturday’s main event. Together, they headline a five-fight main card that follows the four-bout preliminary card. As is typical of pay-per-view events, an early prelims card will start all of the action, shortened to four fights after the cancellation of Jessica vs Manon Fiorot in the women’s flyweight division.

Though headlined by the title elimination bout, the main card is a bit underwhelming, mostly consisting of bouts centered around ranking positioning or last-shot opportunities. The co-main event is a catchweight bout between lightweight contender Rafael Dos Anjos (30-13-0) and fill-in opponent Renato Moicano (16-4-1). Anjos’ opponent was supposed to be the rising Rafael “Ataman” Fiziev (11-1-0), but Fiziev contracted COVID-19 this week. Throughout the evening, however, the prelims and early prelims at UFC 272: Covington vs Masvidal have some interesting matches. In the prelims, the women’s strawweight bout between Marina Rodriguez vs Yan Xiaonan is a top-five contest with title implications.
