The promotional blitz for December’s UFC 245 kicked off Friday, with three champions, and three title challengers on hand at New York’s HULU Theater at Madison Square Garden.
The UFC’s year-end spectacle comes a little early this year. And the promotion starts now. On Friday, with the promotion in New York City for the Diaz-Masvidal fight, the UFC put together the first big press conference to promote UFC 245, featuring three title fights, including the long-awaited welterweight clash between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington.
If this sounds a little too much like an infomercial, so be it: but wait, there’s more! In addition to Usman vs. Covington, UFC 245 featured two more title fights. In the first, on the men’s featherweight side, Max Holloway would defend his title against dangerous challenger Alexander Volkanovski. And in women’s featherweight action, double-champ Amanda Nunes would take on Germaine de Randamie, a former 145lb title holder in the UFC.
Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, Max Holloway, Alexander Volkanovski, Amanda Nunes, and Germaine de Randamie were all expected to be on hand Friday, along with UFC President Dana White, at the HULU Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The press conference kicks off at 5PM ET — catch the live stream above!
