Colby Covington Is in Phenomenal Shape Ahead of UFC 272

Colby Covington is arguably one of the best welterweights of all time in UFC history.

He was unsuccessful to beat Kamaru Usman in their last two encounters. But, so far, he has been the toughest challenge for Usman in the welterweight division.

Colby Covington fights his former best friend and teammate, Jorge Masvidal in the main event of UFC 272.

This is arguably the biggest grudge match in UFC in the last few years. And it seems Colby Covington is taking this fight very seriously despite being a huge favorite to win this match.

Both Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal have lost to the champion, Kamaru Usman twice so far. In order to secure another title shot, Covington must win the fight against Masvidal at UFC 272.

However, it's easier said than done as Masvidal was a long-time training partner of Colby Covington and is well aware of what he might do in the octagon.

With that said, Colby Covington should be the favorite going into UFC 272. What are your thoughts on this exciting welterweight main event?
