Colby better try and wrestle Kamuru as If he try to stand with him, Colby is ******, Kamuru stand up has improve ten fold in real quick time under Trever Whitman. And good luck taking down Usman, Colby also left ATT for a worst gym because everyone hate him for his ******** persona. Colby not getting out of the early rounds, Usman has been sleeping way better striker then Colby in Masvidal and Burns, And Masvidal has one of the best chins in MMA history

Colby also only fight in the 2 year since they’re fight was Woodly  who now is just a punching bag and wressling dummy. So big whoop

Colby was Usmans toughest fight, yes he should’ve been more active but this fight will sell, it is more competitive than Usman vs some random rank 5-10 welterweight, something Usman wanted as hes scared of Colby. Edwards would’ve gotten it if he didn’t almost get finished by Diaz. This fight will be one of the best sold PPV’s this year no matter what the rest of the card looks like. It absolutely makes sense economically aswell as from a competitive standpoint. America’s champ is back and some of you seem to forget that besides Colby’s behavior outside of the cage he is actually a really elite fighter with some of the best cardio of the entire roster.

Usman vs. Covington II
Kamaru Usman, TKO, R3
I think it'll be an easier fight for Usman than before. Body shots will weaken Colby to the point where if he wants to wrestle, he will be just gassing himself out faster. He had problems dodging the straight right and lefts, which eventually broke his jaw, I don't see him doing well against Usman's new jab. Maybe Colby will prove me dead wrong, but I think it might be a one-sided beating this time.

Usman stood and traded with Colby, and gave Colby every chance. He fought dumb because he wanted to walk Colby down and break him, which he eventually did but it made it look close. I think Usman can fight much smarter and go to levels Colby can't. I think he'll do that this time, with his new team.

Gaethje-Chandler rumored for this card too. I can already taste an Usman-Gaethje parlay.

@Kriger2 if you're under 60% in your predictions you shouldn't be allowed to comment. People who know **** about the sport only and you don't fit the threshold so **** haha. The cup shot was clearly a cup shot and ironically once Colby was about to get finished he faked an eye poke which was shown on replay to be a clear punch. People who do anything but laugh at Colby's antics and dismiss them probably married their cousins, are missing at least one tooth and/or have a very low reading level... and oh yea, are white. This main and co main event are 2 battles of fighters who talk too much vs guys who just like to handle their business. Imagine being the idiot who got his jaw broke and is still talking HAHAHAHAHA... what a moron
