UFC 296: What's next for Leon Edwards, Colby Covington and more

The UFC is officially on break until 2024 and the final fight card of the year delivered with some incredible knockouts, dominating performances and a fight of the year candidate. But as we shut the door on 2023, the main event of UFC 296 will remain the hot topic of discussion.

Leon Edwards easily handled Colby Covington to retain the welterweight title. The speed and precision of Edwards was too much for Covington, who was making his first appearance in the Octagon in nearly two years.

Prior to Edwards' win, Alexandre Pantoja put on a clinic against Brandon Royval, taking down the challenger over and over again.
