The Octagon remains in Nevada for tonight’s UFC 272 event, a thirteen-bout fight card headlined by Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal.
Colby Covington (16-3 MMA), the promotions former interim welterweight title holder, suffered his second career defeat to ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ in his most recent effort at UFC 268. Prior to that setback, ‘Chaos’ was coming off a TKO victory over Tyron Woodley.
Meanwhile, Jorge Masvidal (35-15 MMA) will be looking to earn his first win since November of 2019 when he takes to the Octagon against Covington at UFC 272. ‘Gamebred’ is coming off back-to-back losses to Kamaru Usman in his latest efforts.
Tonight’s UFC 272 event is co-headlined by a 160lbs catchweight fight featuring Rafael dos Anjos taking on Renato Moicano.
Dos Anjos (30-13 MMA) will be competing for the first time since November of 2020, where he scored a split decision victory over Paul Felder. That win snapped a two-fight losing skid for ‘RDA’, who had previously suffered losses to Michael Chiesa and Leon Edwards.
Meanwhile, Renato Moicano (16-4-1 MMA) will enter UFC 272 sporting a two-fight winning streak, his latest being a second round submission victory over Alex Hernandez at UFC 271.
Also featured on tonight’s main card is a compelling featherweight matchup between Edson Barboza and Bryce Mitchell.
