Colby Covington vs Robbie Lawler

Postby bruins2012 » Tue Jun 25, 2019 6:19 am

Colby Covington’s next fight will not be for the UFC welterweight title after all. Instead it will be for The Ultimate Fucking Circus title.

The former interim 170-pound champion is expected to meet former UFC champ Robbie Lawler in the UFC Newark main event on Aug. 3 in Newark, New Jersey, ESPN reported Monday night. The report described the pairing as verbally agreed for the card.

Covington hasn’t fought since a June 2018 win over ex-lightweight titleholder Rafael dos Anjos, in which he won the interim belt. He was targeted to fight then-champion Tyron Woodley last September, but couldn’t take the fight because he was recovering from surgery. After Kamaru Usman’s title win over Woodley in March, UFC president Dana White told Covington he was next for Usman. Covington, who is riding a six-fight winning streak, said recently he had hoped to fight Usman at UFC 244 in November.

Lawler is coming off a controversial submission loss to Ben Askren at UFC 235 earlier this year. Referee Herb Dean thought Lawler was unconscious when Askren had him in a choke hold and thus ended the fight, but Lawler seemed to pop up immediately as Dean intervened, arguing that he wasn’t out.

Lawler, on a two-fight skid, hasn’t won since a decision over Donald Cerrone at UFC 214 in July 2017. He is 1-2 since dropping the title to Woodley in 2016. He was champion — and defended the title successfully twice — for a year and a half.

The only other bout targeted for UFC Newark at this time is a lightweight tilt between veterans Jim Miller and Clay Guida.

LOS ANGELES – Like many, Ben Askren had the idea in his head that Kamaru Usman’s first UFC welterweight title defense would be against Colby Covington, who is on an six-fight winning streak.

But as the former Bellator and ONE Championship titleholder’s UFC 239 date with Jorge Masvidal approaches, Askren can’t help but notice that it’s getting to be close to the time Usman’s next fight should be announced, and it’s yet to happen.

“I thought it was a foregone conclusion that Colby and Marty [Usman] would be fighting,” Askren told MMA Junkie at Monday’s UFC 239 media day in downtown Los Angeles. “And then a couple weeks ago I thought, ‘Man, we’re only a month out from my fight and they still haven’t announced it – that’s weird.’ And now it’s like we’re two weeks away, and there’s no other really big events on the horizon, there’s no big press conferences. I’m like, ‘Tthey’re not going to announce it.'”

That’s led Askren to believe the UFC is waiting to see how his fight Masvidal goes on July 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas before deciding the next challenger. And Askren (19-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) believes this is his opportunity to swoop in and take a fight that he believes is the one Usman really wants, anyway.

“They’re going to wait and see what happens in my fight, and if my fight goes well, and I cut a mean promo, my fight with Marty makes a whole lot more sense than Colby vs. Marty,” Askren said. “Because Colby is trying the fake MAGA bull(expletive), but there’s no real heat between Colby and Marty. That’s not genuine. Whereas, for some reason, Marty really doesn’t like me. And so I think it would make a lot of sense. So yes, I think they are waiting 12 more days, they want to see what happens, and then they’ll make the call after that.”

Colby vs Ali expected to be the co-main event on that card.


:P

God I hope I’m wrong but I just see Covington out working and lnping Robbie for all five. He will be shitting himself, shooting from way out the whole time.

I know the mma gods care not what us mortals desire but please allow Robbie to bless us with his righteous violence once more.

Dollar store Usman is going to get smashed. Robbie is going to destroy him


Hopefully Colby doesn't cry after like he did when he panic tapped for his life against a Brazilian kickboxing champ with no ground game :lol: :lol:

The mma gods favor Robbie, look what he did to Kos, Riggs and Asscream.
