|Colby Covington||TALE OF THE TAPE||Jorge Masvidal|
|5 ft. 11 in.||Height||5 ft. 11 in.|
|72 in.||Reach||74 in.|
Good friends and former teammates turned bitter enemies will look to settle their score in the main event of UFC 272.
Number-one ranked welterweight Colby Covington is coming off of his second loss to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. The two fought to a decision at UFC 268 last November.
Like Covington, Masvidal will enter the cage Saturday having lost back-to-back title fights to Usman. He had been on a three-fight winning streak prior.
Covington is the favorite here due to his NCAA division-one wrestling credentials and his stellar stamina – something that has troubled Masvidal in the past. Covington also brings a southpaw element into his fights.
However, Masvidal has shown knockout power in the past and will have a two-inch reach advantage.

|Rafael dos Anjos||TALE OF THE TAPE||Renato Moicano|
|5 ft. 8 in.||Height||5 ft. 11 in.|
|70 in.||Reach||72 in.|
Originally set to take on Rafael Fiziev, Rafael dos Anjos now finds himself with a last-minute replacement opponent in Renato Moicano.
Dos Anjos hasn’t fought in over a year – with his last performance ending in a unanimous decision victory over Paul Felder.
On the other end of the spectrum, Renato Moicano fought just one PPV event ago at UFC 272 where he submitted Alexander Hernandez in the second round.
Both men boast black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu but it is Moicano who will have the edge in both height and reach.
However, the more experienced Rafael dos Anjos has had more time to prepare and will enter the bout as the -188 favorite.
|Edson Barboza||TALE OF THE TAPE||Bryce Mitchell|
|5 ft. 11 in.||Height||5 ft. 9 in.|
|75 in.||Reach||70 in.|
After starting to find his groove as a featherweight, winning two in a row, Edson Barboza had his momentum stopped in his last fight by Giga Chikadze – who defeated him via third-round TKO last August.
Bryce Mitchell, however, remains undefeated as a professional fighter, but has yet to face a test quite like Edson Barboza.
Barboza has black belts in striking disciplines while Mitchell boasts a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Barboza is the older, taller, and longer fighter – boasting a significant five-inch reach advantage.
But the undefeated Mitchell is listed as the -162 favorite.
|Kevin Holland||TALE OF THE TAPE||Alex Oliveira|
|6 ft. 3 in.||Height||5 ft. 11 in.|
|81 in.||Reach||76 in.|
|21-7, 1 no-contest||Record||22-11-1, 2 no-contest|
After suffering back-to-back losses and a no-contest, Kevin Holland will make his return down to the welterweight division for the first time since 2017.
He will take on Alex Oliveira who, despite losing his last three fights in a row, remains one of the biggest crowd favorites on the UFC roster.
Holland is the significant favorite in this bout, listed as -320. He holds black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and kung fu, will stand four inches taller, and will boast a five-inch reach advantage over Oliveira.
|Sergey Spivak||TALE OF THE TAPE||Greg Hardy|
|6 ft. 3 in.||Height||6 ft. 5 in.|
|78 in.||Reach||80 in.|
|13-3||Record||7-4, 1 no-contest|
Not many people are bigger than Moldovian Sergey Spivak, but Greg Hardy is one of them. These two were originally scheduled to face off at UFC 270 but Hardy was forced to withdraw due to a finger injury.
Hardy has suffered back-to-back KO defeats as Sergey Spivak recently had his three-fight winning streak snapped by Tom Aspinall last September.
Despite the physical advantages Hardy has, it is Spivak who is favored to win this one and he is listed as a -220.
