Usman Covington 1

I consider myself a Usman fan and after watching Him TKO Covington in the 5th round of UFC 245, I was sold on Usman. I had and still have no doubt Usman will defeat Covington again on Saturday 6th of November 2021, at UFC 268. Once I started analyzing Their first fight together and seeing the actually fight card and seeing the judges score card, I came to the realization that Colby Covington had a chance of winning the first fight if he hadn't been TKO'D in the 5th and final round. 2 of the 3 Judges had scored in favor of Covington, He may have even won by split decision, my money is still on Usman to win the 2nd fight considering he has been more active since he fought Colby. knocking Jorge Masvidal out cold in Round 2 of their UFC 261 main event rematch. While Colby has remained inactive, Usman has been on a massive run and gets better and better with every fight! I am excited for these two's rematch at UFC 268.
This is just my perspective and analysis out of an infinite amount of perspective and I'd love to get more perspectives on Usman and Covington 2.

Totally agree. I also feel Usman is way better than he was then, has had more fights and hard rounds against top-ranked opponents since then.

Colby Covington hasn't been seen once since UFC 245. I think that may play a huge part in the outcome of the second fight.

I can't bloody wait though.... What a card UFC 268 is..!

Think it will stay standing again?

Great question bro, I perceive that Usman will stay standing and Covington will shoot for a takedown by the 2nd round if he's losing standing up. I perceive they will clinch up against the fence or clinch standing to dirty box and use knees and elbows.
What do you see bro?

I think Usman is going to mix it up a lot this time. Go through all the gears. I feel he is the best on the whole roster, I didn't think Masvidal could be ko'd like that until I saw it with my own eyes so anything could happen really, all on Usman to decide.

Creds to Colby though, amazing athlete.

Amazing how it didn't go to the ground in part 1! 2 best wrestlers in the division, not one takedown 😂

It was great to see 2 elite athletes respect each others ground game so much neither one went for a single takedown! I hope to see a couple of takedown attempts from both Usman and Covington and see who can takedown who!

Most anticipated fight of the year. As much as I hate Colby Covington's public persona, what he has done since almost getting cut from the UFC is remarkable (I just wish he had chosen a different persona).

Usman is such a machine, based on his previous wins over top 3 opponents, I can't imagine Colby taking this. Either way, it is going to be one to remember.

Yeah Usman's recent wins and current form are definitely helping me along with my thinking here.

Same bro! He's been on pure beast mode in his last fights and has gotten even better with his boxing! He knocked Masvidal into another Universe, He slept twice, Once while standing then after hitting the canvas lol
