In what could be the most anticipated UFC fight in 2022, former roommates who are now sworn enemies will be locked in the Octagon for 25 minutes or less at UFC 272. Of course, I’m talking about Colby Covington vs Jorge Masvidal.
UFC 272 takes place on March 5 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the opening bout of the night taking place at 6 p.m. ET. When it comes to the heated main event, Covington vs Masvidal, it is Colby who is the betting favorite.
UFC 272: Covington vs Masvidal Betting Odds
For the first time in over four years, Jorge Masvidal walks into a fight coming off consecutive losses. In this case, both losses came against the same man, Kamaru Usman, for the welterweight championship.
Similarly, Colby Covington came up empty-handed in his second attempt at winning the welterweight strap in November, falling to the same man, Usman, by unanimous decision.
