Colby Covington says Kamaru Usman had no choice but to fight him. Welterweight champion Usman (19-1 MMA, 14-0 UFC) will face Covington in the main event of UFC 268 in a rematch of their back-and-forth battle at UFC 245, where Usman stopped Covington with a late TKO. One judge had Covington (16-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC) up three rounds to one before he was stopped late in Round 5, and Usman was pushed like never before in his career. Covington was upset with the stoppage and thought some of the calls referee Marc Goddard made in the fight were questionable.
