UFC 235: Colby Covington Responds to Report He’s Fighting Kamaru Usman Next
By FCF Staff
Following Kamaru Usman’s championship win last night, it was reported that Colby Covington will challenge the new champ next, and the latter was quick to respond.
Usman took on Tyron Woodley at UFC 235, and proceeded to outwrestle and outstrike him en route to a dominant, decision win. Afterward, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported “Chaos” had been informed he’s fighting for the title next, and the former interim champ responded with the tweet below.
Correction: UFC has already informed Colby Covington he will defend against newly crowned number 1 contender Marty Snoozeman. And that's not news Brett. That's how number 1 contenders work. #PeoplesChamp https://t.co/oBREeUGZaH
