The UFC is returning to Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 6. Given the legendary status of that arena, it’s only fitting that Dana White fill it with perhaps its most stacked card this year.

Sure enough, the UFC didn’t disappoint with the announcement of the highly anticipated card during UFC on ESPN 30 last Saturday.

Two belts will be on the line, as the main and co-main event will feature a couple of exciting rematches.

UFC Welterweight king Kamaru Usman will handle some unfinished business with former teammate and now fierce rival Colby Covington.

It is worth noting that the Nigerian Nightmare first defended his 170-lb. title by knocking out Chaos in a devastating fashion back in 2019.

This time around, Covington looks to flip the script and avenge that defeat.

That’s not all. Before these two Welterweight greats collide, Zhang Weili will look to reclaim the Women’s Strawweight title against Rose Namajunas.

Thug Rose put an end to the Chinese champ’s hype train earlier this year with an incredible head-kick knockout. Namajunas will be out to prove that win was no fluke.

The rest of the main card is also filled with barnburners. The war of words between Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler will finally reach a conclusion, as they face each other for what could be a title eliminator.

Sean Strickland versus Luke Rockhold will also lock horns at Middleweight, while Germaine de Randamie will fight Irene Aldana at Women’s Bantamweight.

At Lightweight, New York’s own Al Iaquinta faces Bobby Green, while a Bantamweight clash between Frankie Edgar (another New Yorker) and Marlon Vera round up the main card.

Hopefully, the injury bug (and other unforeseeable circumstances) don’t mess this stacked card up.
