What Date Is UFC 268?

UFC 268 will be taking place on Saturday, November 6th 2021 live on PPV from the world-famous Madison Square Garden in New York City.

UFC and MMA legend Chael Sonnen recently weighed in on Covington being so quiet ahead of his 170-pound clash, with the outspoken fighter having usually said something controversial by this point in the build-up.

Sonnen said: “He’s very, very quiet by Colby standards. What can we gain from that? Well, without question, we can gain a laser focus. Without question, we can gain that Colby understands this is his last shot, at least as long as Usman stays champion.

"Much like [Jorge] Masvidal, great guys who could make it back to the top again; they will never get that opportunity if Usman is the champion.

"You beat a guy once, you don’t have to fight him twice. You beat a guy twice, you damn sure don’t have to fight him a third time. So, when you have these opportunities, you’ve got to make the most of them.”
