UFC 296: Edwards vs. Covington, held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, is headlined by a title fight featuring Britain’s Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards defending his UFC welterweight championship belt against Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington.
Edwards enters the bout on an 11-fight winning streak, notably defeating Kamaru Usman in back-to-back fights. He claimed the welterweight championship belt dramatically, knocking out Usman with a stunning head kick in the fifth round of their August 2022 bout. Covington steps into the Octagon for the first time in 20 months, having defeated compatriot Jorge Masvidal by unanimous decision in March 2021.
The main card also includes another title defence, as reigning flyweight champion Alexandre Pantoja takes on Brandon Royval. These two fighters previously faced off in August 2021, with Pantoja securing the victory via submission. Viewers will also witness Briton Paddy Pimblett facing Ferguson, with the Liverpudlian aiming to climb up the lightweight rankings and Ireland’s Ian Machado Garry facing Vicente Luque.
The broadcast of the preliminary card will be available for TNT Sports subscribers to watch on TNT Sports 2 from 01:00, before the main card starts from 03:00, exclusively live on TNT Sports Box Office.
