Covington vs Lawler Recap With Post-Fight Theatrics!

Covington Lawler

Covington Lawler

"You know you got a big fight when the President of the United States is tweeting about it", UFC President Dana White tweeted. "Doesn't matter if it's the Trump train or the Colby train, get out of the way!" "Yeah!" Covington said from the octagon, via UFC. They're keeping America great!

Covington defeated Lawler by unanimous decision.

"The guy's done some pretty crappy stuff, he's got lawsuits against his family, against his brother, I just said the truth, I'm honest". "He just said he appreciates everything I've done".

Covington visited Trump in the White House a year ago and the president sent a pre-fight tweet wishing luck for the "Make America Great Again" loyalist. He threw 541 attempted strikes during the match, setting a new UFC record, ESPN reported. Of those 510 strikes, 172 landed and 120 hit Lawler in the head. Covington also took Lawler down 10 times on 18 attempts. The win puts Covington on a seven-fight win streak.

It's an awesome thing to say but somehow "Let's give it up for the Trumps", may have been the least controversial thing Colby Covington said in his post-fight interview last night after defeating Robbie Lawler.

Following the show, Usman went on Twitter to poke fun at Covington for his callout in his post-fight interview with Jon Anik after he beat Lawler. Another obstacle was an injury to his eyelid he sustained while training, resulting in a curbed regimen, Colby said on ESPN MMA.

"Marty Fake Newsman, I don't want to wait until November 2 in Madison Square Garden, we can do it tonight", Covington said.

With the win, Covington not only won the rights to the claim of the top dog at 170-pounds at the American Top Team gym in Coconut Creek, Florida, but he also made a case to be the next challenger to current UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman, a title-holder who also has Ben Askren flying-knee conqueror "Street Jesus" Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal waiting-in-the-wings for him if-and-when the UFC says the time is ready. A victory would give Covington the official welterweight championship belt.
