Colby Covington is a huge fan of Conor McGregor and does not like Dustin Poirier, as many fans are well aware of the fact. Colby Covington was also spotted with Donald Trump’s wife earlier this year.
The ‘Tribute to the Kings’ event headlined by MMA legend Anderson Silva and former WBC middleweight titleholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. took place on Saturday, June 19, at Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico. It was promoted by Borizteca Boxing and Toscano Promotions and produced by Global Sports Streaming. As revealed by reports, it seems the promoters of the event wanted to get UFC megastars, Nate and Nick Diaz, to compete in boxing matches at the event as well. However, while Nate Diaz was definitely interested in competing at the event, it seems the UFC prevented him from doing so. Nate Diaz also called out UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman for picking opponents whom he defeated before.
Colby Covington recently spoke to Submission Radio, where he said that he clearly won his UFC 268 fight against Kamaru Usman.
“I already rewatched it once. I rewatched it right away. I went to the back and I was like, ‘I gotta see what happened’. I feel like I had the third, fourth, and fifth, those were my rounds.”
