    Colby Covington’s relationship with the UFC has deteriorated in a hurry. The man who once took home an interim title just two months before champion Tyron Woodley was set to return to action has seen his fortunes change dramatically — from what appeared to be a guaranteed title shot, to having to ‘earn the spot to get back,’ as Dana White himself recently put it. All without stepping foot inside the Octagon.

    He’s been stripped of his interim title and, after passing on a proposed September bout against Woodley – where the ‘Chosen One’ ended up defeating Darren Till – will once again find himself watching a welterweight title fight from the sidelines. This time it’s fellow…


    Covington threatens to create a ‘living hell’ for UFC with possible lawsuit: ‘We may have to go to court’

    did somebody promise him an opportunity on his terms?

    because it sounds like he had an opportunity and passed because he didn't like the terms.

    would be ironic if giving out so many interim belts somehow bit the UFC in the ass

    Colby Covington's a twat, and UFC corporate are utter tools these days. No matter how this goes down it's basically win-win.

    Colby sucks, but he did what he was supposed to do and should be fighting next. I hate to say it because he seems otherwise despicable, but if we don't apply fair treatment to all, the arbitrariness of the UFC's decision making will only continue. I'd love to see Colby get an injunction to prevent a fight just because it would be a useful precedent for giving fighters some more say. It's a real long shot though.

    I think thats what should be done . Colby breaking his contract with UFC and then sign with DAZN so he could fight Canelo at the end of the year or early 2020

    No title shot for him. A couple of the worst possible matchups possible with the hope that he loses and back to the undercards. They won’t do the right thing and cut him to let him go to another promotion.
