In spite of being unnaturally tranquil throughout recent months, Colby Covington got some down time to make his last expectation for the impending principal and co-headliner at UFC 278.
‘Turmoil’ is entangled in a legitimate case including individual UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal after a squabble outside a steakhouse in Miami back in March. The American’s nonappearance from the enclosure might have cost him a main competitor matchup, and it stays muddled when we will see him back in the enclosure.
Offering the picks to his supporters on Instagram, Colby Covington anticipated that welterweight lord Kamaru Usman would hold his lash against Leon Edwards. He likewise anticipates that Paulo Costa should overpower Luke Rockhold to succeed at UFC 278.
“America’s champ is back with America’s pick of the week… UFC 278 is tonight in Salt Lake City, so the king of Miami is in the lab, cooking up a play for the people… I know what you’re thinking, ‘Colby, these lines are juiced. What should we do?’ Well my friends, sometimes the juice is worth the squeeze. Parlay the CEO of EPO [Kamaru Usman] and Paul[o] Costa and make your bank accounts great again.”
Luke Rockhold gets back to the middleweight division after a long cutback and goes straight for quite possibly of the most hazardous man in the game when he clashes with Paulo Costa in the co-main event.
‘Mayhem’ has been on a break since his last octagon outing against Jorge Masvidal. He stays quite possibly of the greatest name in the 170lb division however has battled champion Kamaru Usman for the belt two times and lost the twice.
Furthermore, the weight class might appear to be unique upon his return. The No.1-positioned competitor could be invited back by a small bunch of hungry welterweights all competing to take his spot and battle for the title. The two major names that would seem OK right now for Covington’s rebound battle are undefeated possibility Khamzat Chimaev and the weighty hitting Brazilian Gilbert Burns.
Nonetheless, the two battles are expressive issues for Covington. ‘Confusion’ depends on his wrestling and cardio to deplete rivals and outpoint them. Chimaev is an incredible grappler, and Burns is a BJJ wizard who is entirely agreeable on the ground. Furthermore, ‘Borz’ and ‘Durinho’ additionally have weighty hands.
Given his set of experiences with the ongoing boss and the possible matchups in the division, it very well may be some time before Colby Covington ends up battling for gold once more.
