UFC sensation, Colby Covington, has reached the spotlight in the last few years fighting stars such as Kamara Usman, Tyron Woodley, and Jorge Masvidal. We have seen Covington talk tons of trash, but is he a guy good? In this article, I'll be giving my personal opinion and who I think he will fight next.
Believe it or not, Colby is a chill dude. I think a lot of people get caught up in how he acts on stage vs him without the cameras. The reason he is talking all that trash and acting like a lunatic is to bring excitement to get more fight sales. This is exactly the strategy UFC megastar Conor McGregor used. Once realizing this and see the true Colby behind the scenes, you will see the humble heart he truly has. To also put in perspective, Colby receives a ton of hate each and every day from his trash talk, political beliefs, and even from other UFC fighters. Now with all of that aside, let's talk about potential matches in the near future.
On the Full Send Podcast hosted by the Nelk Boys, Colby was asked if he was interested in a fight with Conor McGregor. He responded by saying “I would but he’s not gonna fight someone where he knows that there's a 0% to win” Someone Colby has been calling out for years, Dustin Poirier, also could be a possibility. Poirier responded to the recent Colby callout stating “It's cute you know?” and “people want big fights, he wants big fights, you know obviously he’s not in line for a title fight. He lost fights with the champ so he probably needs a few more wins”. The last possibility I can see is a rematch against Jorge Masvidal, though this is unlikely considering that Colby dominated Jorge in their recent fight.
Even though Colby talks some serious trash sometimes, it's just to get in the fighter's head and sell the fight. Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal was the 14th best-selling UFC fight of all time for a reason! Thanks so much for reading all the way to the end.
