Colby Covington Wiki Update Wiki

Colby Covington trains with team MMA Masters since 2020. He used to fight out of American Top Team in Florida. He also used to be roommates with UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal, but this relationship has turned sour.

 

Covington's college wrestling carreer began at Fort Dodge and Iowa Central Community College where he won the national junior college championship at 165 lbs with a 34-0 record.  That year he finishished third in the prestigious Midlands Championships -- the first freshman ever to finish that high in the tournament. 

Covington's sophomore year led him to the University of Iowa, but a charge of DUI and eluding police suspended his wrestling priviliges.  Covington would later look back at this incident as a "life-time low".  Redshirting for the remainder of the year, he saw little action to finish the 2008-2009 season.  

Covington left Iowa that year for Oregon State and a shot at a clean slate.  Wresting at Oregon State would lead him to become a two-time Pac-10 champion and All-American status.


Covington has managed to climb his way to the top of the Wel terweight division using his high caliber wrestling combined with elite pace. He has also become known for his antics outside the ring, riling opponents up with trash talk before the fight.
