Speaking to Submission Radio, the fighter said he was clearly the better man. The judges saw it the other way. “Chaos” says he will prove he’s the superior fighter if he just gets one more shot at Usman.
“Similar to last time, I came out a little bit quicker. I wanted to see what the media was going to say and I am still not happy with what they’re saying. I don’t know why they are running these narratives like this guy is the greatest of all time.
He’s the pound-for-pound number one fighter. I mean, the fans saw it that night. Just because three judges were in there and they scored it a certain way, the fans and the millions of people watching worldwide saw with their clear eyes what happened in that fight. I clearly won that fight three to two.”
Usman has beaten the outspoken Covington twice already. UFC fans may want to see a more competitive matchup. Obviously, Colby is trying to drum up hype to set up a big money fight and force the promotion’s hand.
British fighter Leon Edwards is likely a more deserving challenger. He’s ranked #3 in the weight class and has a nine-fight unbeaten streak going, including his win over Nate Diaz at UFC 263. Colby Covington should have to work his way back into the title picture after already losing twice.
