Report: Kamaru Usman – Colby Covington set for UFC 244

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman (15-1) will probably defend his title against Colby Covington (15-1) this fall at UFC 244.

The Brazilian media outlet Combate is reporting that the company and the two fighters are close to finalizing the bout for November 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York. UFC has yet to comment on the situation, as UFC 244 is still without a main event.

Usman, 32, was last seen inside the Octagon at UFC 235 when he claimed the welterweight belt. Covington, 31, is also coming off of a win. He defeated Robbie Lawler earlier this month, securing his title shot.
