Kamaru Usman will fight Colby Covington for welterweight belt at UFC 245, report says

first_imgKamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington for the 170 belt is a done deal for UFC 245 on Dec. 14 in Las Vegas, sources say. Story coming to @espn shortly.UFC 245 will feature 3 title fights after all.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) September 27, 2019This will be the third title fight on the card which will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year​Max Holloway and Alexander Volkanovski will fight for the featherweight belt (145 pounds) and Amanda Nunes and Germaine de Randamie will face off for the women’s bantamweight (135 pounds) title.Covington (15-1-0) and Usman (15-1-0) have been at each other’s throats for a while after Covington earned the interim welterweight title with a win over Rafael dos Anjos but was forced to vacate it after he decided to take time off to heal an injury. Tyron Woodley then came back and defended his title with a win over Darren Till but lost it later to Usman who won in dominating fashion in a five-round beatdown at UFC 235.Covington then came back after a long layoff and defeated Robbie Lawler who is the former 170-pound champion at UFC Fight Night: Covington vs. Lawler.The matchup between Covington and Usman is an interesting one as both are dominating wrestlers but go about doing damage in very different ways with Covington doing his work in the standup and Usman doing his with a ground-and-pound approach. Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington will get to settle their differences in the Octagon on Dec. 14.The two will fight for the welterweight title at UFC 245, according to ESPN.last_img read more
