From start to finish, Colby Covington controlled the fight at UFC on ESPN 5 in Newark, New Jersey on his way to a Unanimous decision win over Robbie Lawler. Lawler had no real “moments” in the fight, succumbing to Covington’s pressure from start to finish.
Covington landed 10 of 18 takedowns, and landed close to 600 strikes in the 5 round dominate performance.
After the fight, he made sure to call out current champion Kamaru Usman.
“I don’t want to wait until November 2nd at Madison Square Garden, we can do it tonight, we can do it right now, where you at?”
Covington is now on a 7 fight win streak in the UFC welterweight division.
