How to live stream UFC 268 without PPV in Europe

As we say, you're kind of stuck if you're in the US. It's PPV or bust.

Not so in Europe - probably because it's on during the middle of the night! Instead, it's sports streaming specialist DAZN that has the rights.

So if you're a UFC fan in any of Austria, Italy, Germany or Spain, then get yourself over to the DAZN website.

Even better news...you can actually watch absolutely FREE in certain regions (we can confirm that is the case in Germany, Austria and Spain, for example). That's thanks to a 30-day free trial, that you can take advantage of if you've never had a subscription before.

Usman vs Covington 2 preview and predictions

These two bitter rivals provided an all-out war last time, and with the antagonism between the two fighters still very much apparent in the build up to this rematch, its reasonable to expect similar fireworks in Saturday's encounter.

Usman has gone from strength to strength since that showdown, having chalked up notable wins wins over much-fancied challengers Jorge Masvidal (twice) and Gilbert Burns.

Covington has only registered one win since losing to Usman, beating former champion Tyron Woodley, and will need to reach a new level of performance to pull off a successful revenge mission tonight.

Who is Kamaru Usman?

Having chalked up 18 straight MMA victories, Kamaru Usman is one of MMA's best grapplers and took the welterweight crown from Tyron Woodley in 2019 at UFC 235.

While the Nigerian star is known for his floor work, he can punch his way out of trouble when needed, and perfectly illustrated his fists as a means of attack during his dramatic final round stoppage against his opponent tonight during the first defence of his title.

Who is Colby Covington?

Nicknamed "Chaos", Clovis, California-based Covington is a former Interim UFC Welterweight Champion and current number 1 in the UFC welterweight rankings.

The 33-year-old boasts a tidy 16-2-0 record but has only fought once since his defeat to Usman in their first encounter and has changed camps, making it difficult to predict how the two-time Pac-10 Conference college wrestling champion will perform this time out.

Usman vs Covington 2 latest odds: who is the favorite to win?

Defending champ Usman is once again the favorite for this rematch, coming in at 1/3 with the majority of bookies, with Covington marked out at 9/4 to end the Nigerian Nightmare's 18-fight unbeaten streak.

Usman vs Covington 2: recent results

Covington earned tonight's title shot after defeating long-term rival and former teammate Tyron Woodley via TKO and a cracked rib in the main event of UFC Fight Night 178 back in September 2020.

Usman's last title defence came back in August at UFC 261 with his rematch fight with Jorge Masvidal ending with the Nigerian Nightmare delivering a stunning second-round knockout via a highlight reel right hand blow.

UFC 268 full card and highlights

Beyond the much anticipated headline act rematch, UFC 268's co-main event sees another top notch re-run, with Rose Namajunas attempting to defend the strawweight title she took from Zhang Weili back in April. 

Despite the title fight stature of the headline and co-main event, many MMA pundits are tipping the night's best fight will be one further down the bill, with fireworks expected in the lightweight matchup between top contenders Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler.
