Las Vegas — This Saturday, UFC 272 features a highly anticipated welterweight grudge match between former best friends and training partners, Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal. The co main event will be a featherweight bout between Edson Barboza and Bryce Mitchell.
Rafael Dos Anjos and Rafael Fiziev were originally scheduled to compete in the co main event, however, the fight was scrapped due to Fiziev testing positive for COVID-19. UFC is currently looking for a replacement opponent for Dos Anjos.
One fight to look out for is a welterweight bout between Kevin Holland (21-7) vs. Alex Oliveira (21-11-1). Holland, who’s competed at middleweight for his entire UFC career, is making a move down to welterweight as a result of losing his last two fights at middleweight. Oliveira is 1-3 in his last four fights at welterweight.
