Fights to watch out for at UFC 268
As mentioned above, UFC 268 has two title fights in the welterweight and strawweight divisions that serve as the card's marquee matchups. However, the event is also littered with some exhilarating undercard bouts.
Chief among them is the lightweight fight between Michael Chandler and Justin Gaethje. Both men are coming off failed title shots and are looking to get back in the win column. Gaethje is known for essentially only featuring in exciting fights, whilst Chandler's two-fight UFC career so far has made him an instant fan favorite.
Another fight that definitely deserves some attention is the middleweight scrap between former champion Luke Rockhold and surging contender Sean Strickland. Rockhold has been out for an extended period of time. That has left many fans questioning whether he will attempt to mount another title run or simply fall into the role of gatekeeper.
