Without question, the gigantic majority of viewers tuning in to UFC 272 on Saturday will be doing so basically for the grudge match atop the lineup.
Colby Covington (16-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) and Jorge Masvidal (35-15 MMA, 12-8 UFC) are frail teammates and training partners, as neatly as frail factual who were roommates. Now they’re bitter competitors who meet within the major match at T-Cell Area in Las Vegas.
Rivalries like theirs don’t arrive along each and each day, so it’s going to naturally fetch the bulk of the coverage. But there are some other enormous fights earlier than it that deserve some shine.
Greg Hardy vs. Serghei Spivac opens the major card at heavyweight. Kevin Holland vs. Alex Oliveira generally is a welterweight banger. Edson Barboza vs. Bryce Mitchell is one among these proverbial “Fight of the Evening written in every single set it” bouts. And frail light-weight champion Rafael dos Anjos takes on instant-detect exchange Renato Moicano within the co-predominant match.

That’s the question we requested our “Spinning Support Clique” panel of Brian “Goze” Garcia, Mike Bohn and Danny Segura, who mentioned the topic with host “Fine” George Garcia. Take a look at out their responses within the video above, and don’t breeze over this week’s complete episode below.
