Episode details

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 9 bouts on this massive 14-bout UFC 268: 'Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington 2' PPV event. "Back to back top tier UFC cards feels like a real treat. UFC 267 is only just done and dusted and UFC 268 is already cropping up right on the horizon. In the main event, Colby Covington gets his chance at revenge against welterweight champ Kamaru Usman. With women’s strawweight queen Rose Namajunas taking on Weili Zhang in the co-main for the second time as well. Throw Justin Gaethje vs. Michael Chandler, Frankie Edgar vs. Marlon Vera, and Shane Burgos vs. Billy Quarantillo in there and it should be wall-to-wall mayhem." - Zane Simon For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which NOW aired at 1pm Central today, Thurs., Nov. 4th., 2021, right here on our SC channel.
