    The UFC is reportedly close to finalizing the proposed welterweight title fight between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington.

    First it was on, then it was off, and now it’s back on again.

    After initial reports of failed negotiations with Colby Covington and the UFC, ESPN’s Ariel Helwani claims that Ultimate Fighting Championship is close to finalizing a welterweight title bout between ‘Chaos’ and official champ Kamaru Usman at UFC 245 on Dec. 14.


    Per @arielhelwani on The MMA Reporters podcast, the UFC are closing in on booking Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington for UFC 245. It would be one of three title bouts on the card.

    Usman is going to be mindfucked before getting in the Octagon. Usman is going to try and talk shit with Colby and he will get buried.

    as much as i want to see colby take a beating it would be good for the ufc to have a champ with some actual charisma in the division . the welterweight champs have always been boring types woodley has zero fans .usman is the same but has even less fans .robbie lawlor was a great fighter who brings it in the cage but has even less charisma than woodley and usaman. robbie couldnt cut a promo to save his life. jonny hendricks won the title by holding on to robbies leg for 5 rounds , GSP greatest ufc fighter of all time .personality of a houseplant . safe and boring fighting style. matt serra ....we have a winner...you have to go back to a one and done champ in 2007 to find another welterweight champ with any personality at all . colby is an idiot and even though i am a MAGA retard myself im not buying colbys schtick. that being said he could bring some eyes to the division .bring some excitement as everyone on the roster wants to kick his head in. he can cut a promo ,not as good as conor or chael but better than cringey cejudo . if usman wins its more boring nothingness from WW division .if colby wins a real title and walks around with 2 belts the shit talk will kick in to a whole nother level and make WW great again

    Colby better be getting paid a fat cheque because he’ll be a pariah if he loses.

    yeah I would normally be on board but I just cant stand the guy. if he does win I would love him to defend in Australia - Kid Boomerang could become a household name.
    But in all seriousness am I the only one who loves Henry Cejudo, his cringe is just cheesiness to the nth degree - I like that about him; I like him in general - I remember when he came out against the fines against Nick Diaz and said he wouldn't fight in Vegas either.
    In conclusion, you are right the welterweight champs have not been particularly exciting but I just don't like Colby at all; would love Stipe to put him in his place .
    anyway have a good weekend guys Im almost finished work :)

    I would rather get hit in the balls with a claw hammer than listen to Matt Serra. GSP had the “it” factor. He didn’t need to talk shit and still sold the shit out of PPV.

    Hopefully someone will put an end to Colby soon. Aside from people who believe in WWE, I don’t think he’s bringing in new viewers. He’s just a shit talking tool that everyone hates.

    Does Colby draw numbers? I would've thought his cards are the lowest of any belt holder ever since people boycott him

    he got slapped around in the trash talk with woodley

    didn't help woodley from getting whooped in the cage

    i dont think usman gets bothered from trash talk like someone like jose aldo for example

    true, If they were the same level in fighting, i pick colby to win with the mental edge, but he's just not as good as usman

    People have been trying to use that as a excuse for Colby to lose his last 5 fights and he just dominates.

    Thats true ,colby overall was very dominant but showed some vulnerability here and there, he has been finished in the ufc by warley alves, hit by some good shots by RDA and lost a round and struggled with DHK in the wrestling.

    Usman dominated everybody, period. Also he's a more dangerous striker than colby is
