Previous interim Welterweight winner Colby Covington will deal with off towards his bitter rival, Tyron Woodley, this Saturday evening (Sept. 19, 2020) at UFC Vegas 11 from within UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada in a fight a number of a long time in the earning.
Just before then, let us choose a vacation down Memory Lane to see Covington’s report-placing general performance in opposition to Robbie Lawler. Again in August of 2019, “Chaos” and “Ruthless” headlined UFC on ESPN 5 in Newark, New Jersey in a battle of American Top Workforce (ATT) colleagues.
From the bounce, Covington arrived out intense as standard, smothering the previous 170-pound champion with his relentless rate. To nobody’s surprise, “Chaos” did a ton of his perform in the wrestling office, scoring some takedowns and smothering Lawler up versus the cage all through the clinch, But what actually established Covington aside in this struggle was his striking output, as he set a history of 541 thrown strikes in a struggle.
That was good more than enough to gain Colby a unanimous conclusion win, placing him up for a championship combat against Kamaru Usman at UFC 245 a several shorter months later on. “Chaos” went on to eliminate by using fifth spherical specialized knockout (TKO) to the champ, suffering a fractured jaw in the process.
Now, Covington will seem to get back on monitor in his very first battle in 10 months in opposition to a guy he’s been seeking to place hands on for some time now. With a get more than Woodley, Covington can jump again to the front of the line in his quest to recapture UFC gold.
