Two title fights are now official for November’s UFC 268 event, including a women’s strawweight rematch between Rose Namajunas and Weili Zhang.
Prior to the setback, Weili Zhang had put together a staggering 21-fight win streak which included a TKO victory over Jessica Andrade.
Meanwhile, Rose Namajunas will enter UFC 268 sporting a two-fight winning streak. Prior to dethroning Zhang in April, ‘Thug Rose’ had avenged her previous loss to Jessica Andrade by earning a split-decision win at UFC 251.
In addition to Namajunas vs. Zhang 2, the November 6 event will be headlined by a welterweight title fight rematch featuring reigning champion Kamaru Usman taking on bitter rival Colby Covington.

Meanwhile, Kamaru Usman (19-1 MMA) has gone on to defend his title on three occasions since defeating ‘Chaos’ at UFC 245. In his most recent effort the Nigerian champion scored a brutal knockout win over Jorge Masvidal.
