Kamaru is heading into this weekend’s stacked pay-per-view card hoping to become the greatest welterweight of all time. The fighter has already been called the GOAT of the division by many experts and fans. The welterweight champion is off to make his third title defense in the year 2021. Very rarely do we get to see a champion that is as active as the current champ. Usman became the champion in the year 2019 and has gone on to make four title defenses already.

Usman is coming off a highlight-reel knockout win against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261. The Nigerian champ stunned the crowd with his perfect finish. He will be taking on Colby Covington for the second time and there is no doubt he has high expectations to finish his opponent at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. Who are you rooting for in the upcoming amazing title rematch at UFC 268?
