Main Event Overview
Colby Covington is very well known for mixing it up between wrestling, striking and constant pressure. He is also the former interim Welterweight champion, but had that title stripped from him after failing to come to agreeable terms with the UFC to fight then champion Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley.
In his most recent fight he dominated his opponent Rafael Dos Anjos and took the fight to a decision. It is good to note that RDA is also a former opponent of Robbie Lawler and Beat Robbie a couple of fights ago and dominated him 50-45 on all scorecards. Covington and Lawler were also former team mates at American Top Team and Covington says he wants get revenge against Lawler for his team.
Robbie Lawler AKA “The Ruthless One” is a former champion and future hall of famer, and has been known to come out very strong vs opponents who enjoy trash talking. Most fans are hoping that they will get a vintage Robbie Lawler performance this Saturday. His most recent fight; a controversial loss to “Funky” Ben Askren will surely be a motivating factor for Lawler in his upcoming bout against Covington, also an avid trash talker.
Will we get a classic Ruthless Robbie Lawler performance tonight? Or will Colby’s wresting pressure get the better of him? Only time will tell. This is an extremely difficult fight to pick. But I will go with my gut feeling this time around.
Prediction: Robbie Lawler Via KO/TKO Round 3
