The potential money fight Tyron Woodley has been seeking is now in front of him. Colby Covington won the interim welterweight world title at UFC 225 in a 5 round decision against Rafael Dos Anjos. This sets up the fight Covington has been demanding. Tyron Woodley went to social media and welcomed the title unification bout. now the question is will Tyron Woodley be more vocal in the war of words. I am excited to see how this all plays out during the summer. One thing for sure is that Colby Covington definitely isn't going to be quiet in the meantime. Whether you love him or hate him, Covington has proved he's a legit contender in the division and his fight against Tyron Woodley looks to be a great fight. What are your thoughts on this match up and their rivalry?

Covington isn't going to beat Woodley, which is bad because I have to endure woodley for at least another year after he defends as he will think of a reason  not to fight again for that long.

Also Covington is an incredibly boring fighter..just a run-of-the-mil fence grinding decisionator really. He will never draw despite all the **** talking, especially after he loses to Tywhine.

Yeah, imo, once colby loses violently, his drawing power goes away. But in the meantime, i think this fight will draw as lo g as it's a co-main to a good fight or if it's the main event and the co-main is a banger. Legitamate grudge matches always bring big buys though. Dc vs jones, chuck vs tito, anderson vs chael..etc. 

The best self promoting fighters have a way of turning every fight into a grudge match. They create that tension. Conor is great at this. Chael is excellent at this. Hell even tito created real hatred in his fights.

Sucks Condit no longer what he was. Prime Condit vs COdy would be a fun as ****. Condit would be absolute handful on the ground.  Condit of old could go all day.

Personally think Prime condit, finishes Cody as well.

@franklin Man Carlos was a monster. He was the 1st fighter that wasn't from a wrestling background that I really followed. I appreciated the fact that he could finish from every position and was always looking for the finish. That would be a banger, but I have no idea who would win. Cody showed he can bring that grinding style for 25 minutes, but any mistake and it's over with Carlos.

I hate Covington and i am really excited for this fight. I hope Woodley knocks him out and i think he will. BUT when it comes to cardio Colby definitely has better cardio. So Woodley has to be smart. He needs to get Colbys respect early and show him what power he posses.

But Covington seems to have a pretty good chin so it's not a guarantee that Woodley can knock him out. If he can't then he needs to be careful and save his energy. As long as he doesn't gas himself out this is Woodleys fight to lose.
