Winner of The Ultimate Fighter season 21, Usman (15-1, fighting out of Dallas, Tx. by way of Auchi, Nigeria) is unbeaten since joining the UFC roster in 2015. He ascended the 170-pound ranks with impressive wins against Rafael Dos Anjos, Demian Maia and Leon Edwards, and his last outing saw him dominate Tyron Woodley to capture the welterweight championship in March. Usman now looks to take out his most heated rival to earn his first successful title defense.
Former UFC interim welterweight champion Covington (15-1, fighting out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) is poised to prove he’s the best in the world at 170 pounds. Currently riding a seven-fight win streak, the NCAA Division I All-American wrestler has netted big victories over Dos Anjos, Maia and Dong Hyun Kim, but Covington secured his most impressive win to date in his last outing against former champion Robbie Lawler in August. He now aims to settle the score with Usman and take home the welterweight championship.
Among the most dominant champions on the UFC roster, Holloway (21-4, fighting out of Waianae, Hawaii) has beaten the who’s who of the featherweight division. Over the course of his career, he’s scored dominant wins over former UFC title holders Frankie Edgar, Jose Aldo (twice) and Anthony Pettis, as well as top contender Brian Ortega. The Hawaiian now looks to take out one of the division’s most dangerous contenders for his fourth successful title defense.
Unbeaten for over six years, Volkanovski (20-1, fighting out of Windang, New South Wales, Australia) aims to be the next Australian athlete to capture a world championship. The former rugby player has been on a tear since joining the UFC roster in late 2016, securing impressive victories over Aldo, Chad Mendes, Darren Elkins, Jeremy Kennedy and Mizuto Hirota. Volkanovski now has his sights on dethroning Holloway to hand the Hawaiian his first featherweight loss since 2013.
Former UFC featherweight champion De Randamie (9-3, fighting out of Utrecht, The Netherlands) is gunning for a measure of revenge against Nunes. Since that loss, she has won five straight with dominant victories over Raquel Pennington, Holly Holm and Larissa Pacheco. In July, De Randamie delivered a spectacular 16-second TKO win against Aspen Ladd. She now aims to become the second woman to win UFC championships in two divisions by handing Nunes her first loss in over five years.
Additional bouts on the card include:
Perennial fan favorite Matt Brown (23-16, fighting out of Denver, Colo.) returns against dangerous Ben Saunders (22-12, fighting out of Orlando, Fla.) in an exciting welterweight bout
Recent flyweight title challenger and No. 2 ranked contender Jessica Eye (14-7, fighting out of Cleveland, Oh.) takes on rising No. 6 Viviane Araujo (8-1, fighting out of Brasilia, Brazil)
In a clash of flyweight contenders, No. 6 ranked Brandon Moreno (14-5-1, fighting out of Tijuana, Mexico) faces No. 7 Kai Kara France (20-7-1, fighting out of Auckland, New Zealand)
Undefeated Dana White’s Contender Series signee Punahele Soriano (6-0, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.) debuts against Oskar Piechota (11-2-1, fighting out of Gdynia, Poland)
In addition to the UFC 245 main event, featherweight champion Max Holloway will put his strap on the line against 145-pound contender, Alex Volkanovski. In addition, Amanda Nunes returns to bantamweight to defend one of her two titles in a rematch against Germaine De Randamie.

With welterweight contender Santiago Ponzinibbio out of UFC 245 due to a staph infection, Robbie Lawler is in need of a new opponent.
Enter Mike Perry?
While the UFC hasn’t made any decision yet on who will take on Lawler on the December 14th pay-per-view event, “Platinum” Perry has expressed interest in what would certainly be an action-packed battle with the former welterweight champion.
“If Robbie Lawler would grace me with his name on a contract, let’s go bro,” Perry said to MMAjunkie. “Let’s put on a show. We’re going to put on a show. None of that wrestling sh-t.
“I might mix it up on you. I might try to change levels, shoot a single leg, take you down, punch you a little bit. Punch you, get you disoriented. Or I might hold tight and box. Who am I? Who am I to be accepted from a guy like that?”
Perry (13-5) is coming off a split decision loss to Vicente Luque at UFC Uruguay in August. What was most notable from that three-round thriller was Perry’s grotesque broken nose that he suffered in the final round. Perry, who is already back in training, provided an update on his busted schnozz.
“It’s a little loud when I use it, but I don’t really use it too often,” Perry said. “I just hold my breath and swing real hard, and they usually disperse. They either get out the way or they run real fast. So we’ll see. I’m good though. I’m ready to fight.
“I’ve been training, been sparring, working, ready to fight anybody, anytime. I’ll fight right now tonight; let’s go.”
Lawler (28-14-1 NC) is on a three-fight losing streak, most recently dropping a one-sided decision to Colby Covington in the UFC Newark main event back in August. This is the longest losing skid Lawler has ever had in his career, but if he does face Perry, it would figure to be a much different stylistic matchup compared to Covington, Ben Askren, and Rafael dos Anjos.
In other words, a stand-up war.
“Robbie, let’s f—king go, bro. Let’s show these people how to fight. You’ve been slacking, and I’m unlucky in that I get the best versions of the best dudes.”
UFC 245 features three title fights atop the bill, with a welterweight title grudge match between champion Kamaru Usman and former interim champ Colby Covington slated as the main event. In the co-main event, men’s featherweight champion Max Holloway puts his belt on the line against Alex Volkanovski, while two-division champ Amanda Nunes defends her bantamweight belt vs. Germaine de Randamie.
After some apparently tense and prolonged contractual negotiations, Covington and Usman were finally booked to fight at the December 14th, UFC 245 card in Las Vegas. Covington has been tapped for the title shot, after winning seven straight fights, and that run includes securing the interim welterweight title last summer, by defeating Rafael dos Anjos.
In terms of how both men have scored victories in the UFC, six of Covington’s wins have come via decision. Eight of Usman’s ten UFC wins have been via the judge’s scorecards.
