UFC 268 ‘Embedded,’ No. 5: What Colby Covington told Kamaru Usman after faceoff shove

The UFC returns to pay-per-view Saturday with UFC 268, which means the fight week video series “Embedded” is back to document the fighters behind the scenes.

UFC 268 takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews/ESPN+ and early prelims on ESPN+.

The top of the bill features two title-fight rematches. In the main event, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman 19-1 MMA, 14-0 UFC) runs it back with rival Colby Covington (16-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC) looking to repeat his victory from December 2019. And in the co-headliner, strawweight champ Rose Namajunas (10-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) and Zhang Weili (21-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) meet again after Namajunas won by knockout in their April title fight at UFC 261.

The main card also features a marquee lightweight bout between top contenders Michael Chandler (22-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Justin Gaethje (22-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC).

The fifth episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters as they go throughout their fight week. Here is the description from YouTube:

Michael Chandler starts to sweat. Frankie Edgar preps for a home game. Champion Rose Namajunas trains her mind and hits mitts. Words fly between champ Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington at the presser, but Justin Gaethje and Zhang Weili are all smiles.

Check out the episode in the video above.
