BELLATOR MMA 270: Queally vs. Pitbull 2 RESULTS

The main event features a rematch between UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman (19-1) and No. 1-ranked challenger and former interim champ Colby Covington (16-2). Usman defeated Covington by fifth-round technical knockout in their first clash at UFC 245 in 2019. He enters the Octagon with an impressive 18-fight-unbeaten streak. Covington has only fought once since then, a victory over former champion Tyron Woodley more than a year ago. Covington, whose loss to Usman is his only defeat in his last nine matches, has notable victories over former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos.

The co-main event between UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas (11-4) and former champion Zhang Weili (21-2) is a rematch just six months after UFC 261 in which then-reigning champ Weili lost the belt in a first-round “Knockout of the Year” contender. With the win, Namajunas became the first woman in UFC history to regain a championship after losing the belt. She has won eight of her last 10 fights. Weili, the first Chinese fighter to win a UFC title, has won 21 of her last 22 bouts. Overall, she has 17 finished in 21 victories.
