UFC 268 begins tonight, and it has the potential to be a classic. Not only will UFC 268 have two enthralling championship bouts, but it will also include several possible fight of the year contenders.

In the main event, Kamaru Usman takes on Colby Covington in a rematch of one of the greatest title battles of all time. The last time these two wrestlers faced off, they beat the living daylights out of each other on the mat. Will they repeat the performance in the rematch? It’s difficult to say. I was hoping for a bit more wrestling in this one, but wrestler vs. wrestler matches are usually contested standing up, so I’m anticipating another brawl.

However, the rematch between Rose Namajunas and Zhang Weili for the championship battle might be even more exciting. The last time they fought, Namajunas knocked Weili out in the first round with a devastating head kick. That isn’t going to happen this time. This will almost certainly be a striking clinic between two of the UFC’s top strikers. This is something I can’t wait for.
