The UFC is returning to PPV on Saturday, March 5 from Las Vegas with a rare non-title main event. At the top of the list is the much-anticipated feud between former friends and team-mate Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington.

Covington and Masvidal are former allies who have become hateful enemies. While fans have long wanted to see the two squares in Octagon, the two are tied to their individual feud with UFC welterweight champion Kumaro Usman.
The two Americans were former close friends and teammates, and even lived together before their relationship broke down and left Welterweight as a bitter rival, their resentment likely to continue beyond this week's fight. ۔
Masvidal (35-15) and former interim champion Covington (16-3) have both had a brief bout against title-holder Kumaru Usman twice in recent years, meaning they are just a few shots away from another shot at Gold. Every man can do this to start a fresh march towards the welterweight belt, to win a big victory against the other here.
When asked what the headlines will be the morning after this weekend’s main event, Masvidal told ESPN: “Colby in critical condition, might not fully make it.” The controversial Covington, meanwhile, told TMZ: “I’m gonna drag it out, I’m gonna make him suffer. It’s gonna be a funeral.”
