After a lengthy war of words, Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley will finally get to prove who is the better man inside the Octagon on Saturday as the welterweight showdown will main event UFC Fight Night from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
Covington had a seven-fight winning streak snapped in his most recent outing, a fifth-round knockout in his shot at welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Woodley, though, finds himself in a worse position, having lost the welterweight title to Usman in a one-sided fight and being dominated by Gilbert Burns earlier this year. The losses marked Woodley’s first two-fight losing skid of his pro career.
But this fight is about more than records and divisional positioning. The two have been engaged in a bitter rivalry for years since the they were American Top Team teammates and Woodley held the UFC championship. Woodley has promised his fans that he will let his hands go against the trash-talking Covington, and stated he will not be overwhelmed as he was in his two most recent fights.
