New York City will host one of the biggest UFC cards of the year this weekend.

Headlined by a heated welterweight title fight rematch, UFC 268 will take place on Saturday, November 6 at NYC's iconic Madison Square Garden. The arena that once saw Conor McGregor crowned as the first simultaneous two-division UFC champion will see either Kamaru Usman add another ruby to his 170-pound belt or witness Colby Covington get crowned as the new welterweight king.
