Covington enters this fight with the very real possibility that he will never again fight for the title whilst Usman is Champion.
Interestingly, the outspoken fighter has been quite demure ahead of the contest, with many believing that ‘Chaos’ is keeping his head down in case he is humiliated by the ‘Nigerian Nightmare.’
Covington enters the octagon on Saturday November 6th for the biggest contest of his career, but it remains to be seen if he can truly put a dent in the current 170-pound king and arguably the P4P champion in all of mixed martial arts, Usman.
