UFC 245 will now have three title fights after ESPN's Ariel Helwani reported Friday that welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will put his belt up against Colby Covington.

Usman sports a 15-1 professional MMA record, with his last loss occurring in May 2013.

He most recently beat Tyron Woodley for the welterweight belt at UFC 235 in March via unanimous decision.

His 510 significant strike attempts set a UFC single-fight record, per Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie.
