It's no secret: Colby Covington doesn't get on with either Tyron Woodley or Kamaru Usman.

Covington's new attitude has seen him draw a plethora of hatred towards him, alongside a new fan base that has welcomed the excitement in the welterweight division.


Although he hasn't done himself a lot of favours with his gimmick, there are still many fans out there that believe the UFC did wrong by handing a welterweight title fight to Usman.

The Nigerian Nightmare will take on The Chosen One in the co-main event slot at UFC 235, an event which is expected to be headlined by Jon Jones and Anthony Smith in a light heavyweight title fight.

Chaos has unleashed plenty of abuse towards the UFC and president Dana White for not handing the interim championship the next undisputed title fight, while going on to state that he'd only compete in the Octagon again if he receives championship fight pay.

Now, Covington has had his say on the confirmed title bout, and has even offered his own prediction.

When asked about the upcoming title fight, Covington stated that his bitter rival Woodley will walk right through Usman later this year.


According to MMA News, he said: "There’s no chance Usman beats him. I’d bet every dollar on it.

"Look at his career. He hasn’t even beat a guy coming off a win in the top 10. Both of his wins in the top 10 are guys I left f****** bloodied and beaten and souls taken.

"Those guys don’t have anything left in the tank because of what I did to them. He hasn’t beat anybody that’s legit.

“Woodley’s going to walk through him but even when that happens I still don’t think the fight is going to happen [with me]."

Covington went on to add that he doesn't think the fight with Woodley is ever going to happen.

"Woodley is going to delay it longer, he’s going to say he has fake injuries and the UFC is just going to move on,” Covington said. “Somebody else is going to be there. There will be another guy in the division who will get to fight.

“I honestly don’t think the fight is ever going to happen.”

For now, he's going to have to wait and see whether Usman can take the title from Woodley instead.
