Former interim UFC welterweight champion, Colby Covington, gave a prediction for the upcoming fight against Tyrone Woodley, promising not to bring the fight to a judge’s decision.
“We’re getting ready to see the best Tyrone Woodley in this fight,” Covington told MMAFighting. “Remembering his last two fights, yes, they won against him according to the judges’ notes, but our fight will not reach the decision of the judges.”
“I will leave no doubt that I am the best welterweight in the world and will add another world champion to my amazing resume. I will finish him off, the fight will not come to a judge’s decision – I promise you. He will lie unconscious in the middle of the octagon ”
“If Tyrone Woodley does not leave the Octagon on a stretcher on September 19 live on ESPN, then I have not done my job.”
Recall that the fight between Colby Covington and Tyrone Woodley will take place on September 19. This date is currently reserved for UFC 253, but according to the information available, the numbered show will be rescheduled to September 26, and the top welterweight bout will lead the UFC on ESPN series.
