Ought to there be any final minute hitches forward of Saturday’s UFC 286 essential occasion, Colby Covington is available to reply the decision.
Rumours that the previous multiple-time world title challenger had travelled to London as a possible alternative fighter had been confirmed at Friday’s early weigh-ins within the English capital when ‘Chaos’ stepped on the scales to register welterweight championship weight of 170-pounds forward of tomorrow evening’s trilogy struggle between champion Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman.
UFC officers had been tight-lipped as to Covington’s potential involvement, with each Edwards and Usman additionally apparently unaware of Covington’s attendance on the occasion once they had been questioned about it throughout Thursdays pre-fight press convention. At this level, although, it seems unlikely that Covington will truly compete on condition that each Edwards and Usman efficiently made weight on Friday morning — however as was confirmed just lately by Alexander Volkanovski, showing as a back-up fighter at an occasion — even in case you aren’t used — is an efficient method of doubtless cementing a future world title shot.
