UFC 268: Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington 2 post-fight press conference live stream.

As it usually does, the UFC brought a loaded card to New York’s Madison Square Garden for UFC 268: Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington 2. It’s the first time the UFC has visited New York City since presenting the BMF title fight-led UFC 244 in November 2019.

And when all the action inside the Octagon is done, bring it here for the UFC 268 post-fight press conference.

At the conference, UFC president Dana White and several fighters who competed on the UFC 268 card will address the media.

The main event of the evening saw Kamaru Usman defend the UFC welterweight championship against Colby Covington. This was a rematch of their UFC 245 main event bout, which saw Usman win a highly-competitive bout via fifth-round TKO.

Usman has since retained the title against Gilbert Burns and twice against Jorge Masvidal. Covington, meanwhile, silenced another heated rival in Tyron Woodley via a fifth-round finish at UFC Vegas 11 in September 2020.

The co-main event was also a championship rematch with Rose Namajunas putting the UFC women’s strawweight title on the line against Weili Zhang. Namajunas defeated Zhang via knockout in under 90 seconds at UFC 261 in April. It made Namajunas a two-time champ and was Zhang’s first loss since losing her professional MMA debut.

The winners of the two title fights are expected to be at the press conference, talking about his victories and what is next. The losers, if cleared and allowed, may also appear to discuss where he goes from here.

Some of the main card’s other participants — including Justin Gaethje, Michael Chandler, Frankie Edgar, Marlon Vera, Shane Burgos and Billy Quarantillo — may also appear.

When White addresses the media, he will discuss the events of tonight, as well as any news and rumors surrounding the UFC. He will also hand out post-fight bonuses, naming the UFC 268 Fight of the Night (if any) and performance bonuses.

The UFC’s next event is UFC Vegas 42 on Nov. 13, taking place, as per usual, at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, NV. The main event is scheduled to be a battle of featherweight contenders as former champ Max Holloway takes on Yair Rodriguez.

The UFC’s next pay-per-view card, UFC 269, will also take place in Las Vegas, albeit at the T-Mobile Arena. It will be the final UFC pay-per-view card of 2021.

That card will also feature two title fights — Charles Oliveira defending the UFC lightweight title against Dustin Poirier and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defending against Julianna Pena. That event will also see the return of Jorge Masvidal, as he faces Leon Edwards in a long-awaited bout.

UFC 268 takes place on Saturday, Nov. 6, live from Madison Square Garden in New York. Follow along with FanSided MMA for all your news and highlights.
