Colby Covington beats Jorge Masvidal via unanimous decision
Colby Covington outclassed Jorge Masvidal throughout the five rounds with his grappling and ground and pound to win the fight via unanimous decision. This means that Drake has lost his $275k bet as Jorge Masvidal was unable to win this UFC 272 main event against Chaos.
Speaking about this fight, Colby Covington showed the entire world why he is such an elite wrestler as he controlled Masvidal for over ten minutes on the ground. Chaos landed a lot of ground and pound and outstriked Masvidal significantly. One could argue that the fight was tied with both fighters winning one round each after the end of the second round.
However, Covington’s third round takedown helped him get the control of the fight. With that being said, Masvidal also had his moment in this fight as he landed a big right hook and stunned Colby in the final minute of the fourth round. But he was unable to take advantage of this situation and Covington managed to survive. Thereafter Colby grappled his way towards a dominant victory.
