Colby Covington Plans On Moving In to Middleweight

Former interim welterweight champion Colby Covington is slated to battle Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight gold. He fought Usman for it once before at UFC 245 but lost the fight via TKO in the fifth round. Despite the fact that Covington lost, it was one of the finest fights of the year, and they will battle for the title again at UFC 268 on November 6th, 2021. Covington took part in a workout session with Jack Owoc at the “World’s Dopest Gym” in a video collaboration with Bang Energy Drinks. When Owoc asked Colby Covington whether he had any fresh plans for his next two battles, Covington surprised everyone by revealing something unexpected. After defeating Kamaru Usman, ‘Chaos’ claimed that he may step up to middleweight.

“I’ll be fighting Kamaru Usman in my weight class. I’m going to win the world title at 170 pounds, welterweight, and then I’m going to work with you and Bang Energy to gain muscle mass so we can move up to middleweight, 185 pounds, and beat Israel Adesanya “Colby Covington expressed his thoughts.Many people will be surprised by Covington’s plans because he will be a considerably smaller competitor at middleweight. Not to mention the fact that Israel Adesanya, a 6’4” striking monster, may overwhelm him.
