Kamaru Usman has offered his prediction for the main event of UFC 272 in March, with friends-turned-rivals Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington set to go head-to-head.

Usman has successfully defended the UFC welterweight title against both men twice, most recently outpointing Covington in November .

While Usman’s rivalries with both fighters have been somewhat intense, they do not compare to the dynamic between Masvidal and Covington, whom fans have wanted to see compete in a grudge match for a number of years.

Per the Mirror , Usman was asked to predict the winner of that fight on Snapchat, and the Nigerian-American simply replied: “Colby.”

Usman stopped Covington in the fifth round of their first in-ring meeting, in December 2019, before beating the American via decision in their rematch.

After the first of those clashes and before the second, Usman twice defeated Masvidal – either side of a win against Gilbert Burns.

In the first fight, Usman outpointed Masvidal , before knocking him out cold in the second round of their rematch last April.
