Colby is a former interim welterweight champion with a record of (15-1), which is pretty impressive in the MMA world. He lost his belt due to inactivity.
Covington’s last fight was against Robbie Lawler, Colby won it via unanimous decision.
Usman is a current UFC welterweight champion and Colby’s eyes are on him. Former champ wants to fight against Kamaru to unify his belt.
“It’s time to unify my belt with Marty Fakenewsman,” Colby about Usman. “This fight has so many angles. The Palms buffet line, look at Marty Fakenewsman, he was faking an injury when he fought Tyron Woodley. He’s in a wheelchair after the fight with Woodley, acting like he’s hurt getting wheelchaired to the press conference and eight hours later he’s jumping me in the Palms buffet line, jumping over barricades, pushing a pregnant late out of the way to get to me.”
Colby Covington said: “It just shows how fake he is. He’s the CNN of the UFC. I’m seriously going to leave that dude f—king crippled. I’m going to f—k that dude up,”
As rumors say Usman and Colby gonna fight at the end of this year but there are no official statements by UFC yet.
