Watch: Colby Covington & Kamaru Usman Jaw Off After UFC Newark

Colby Covington

Earlier tonight (Sat. August 3, 2019) former interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington picked up a huge win at UFC Newark.

Covington dominated ex-champion Robbie Lawler for five rounds inside the prudential center of New Jersey. After the bout, it seemed pretty clear that “Chaos” is next in line for Kamaru Usman and the UFC welterweight title. The pair actually came face-to-face on the ESPN+ post-fight show.

Covington is now on a seven-fight win streak after getting past “Ruthless.” He hopes to become the first man to defeat Usman in the UFC, and hand “The Nigerian Nightmare” his first professional defeat since his second-ever fight back in 2013. Usman is an extremely well-rounded fighter and dominated Tyron Woodley back in March to win the 170-pound title.
