UFC 245 will be the event with which the company will close 2019 and will be large since there will be 3 title fights. This is the official poster.
In the stellar event, we will have the expected match between Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington for the 170-pound belt. The rivalry between the two has escalated for months with strong statements among them, provocations and even a physical altercation between Usman’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz and Colby in Las Vegas.
Max Holloway’s featherweight belt will also be at stake, who has not lost 145 pounds since 2013 and is also defeating Frankie Edgar by unanimous decision. His rival will be the Australian Alexander Volkanovski with a record of 20-1, who has made a perfect campaign in the UFC; defeating in his last fight the former monarch of the division, José Aldo.
Finally, there will be a rematch between the double champion Amanda Nunes, who will expose the female bantamweight belt against Germaine de Randamie.
