Observing a terrific performance against Robbie Lawler, Colby”Chaos” Covington appears to be receiving his UFC welterweight title taken against Kamaru”The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman.
The two have been yearning to collide for a couple of years now in what might be a close fight, but online sportsbook BetOnline has Usman as the large popular at -250 together with Covington coming back at +195. This fight has not been announced officially yet, however it seems that it will take place at UFC 244 in Madison Square Garden on November 2.
This would indicate the first time that Covington has been a underdog from the UFC, if the chances remain the same. Chaos closed as a very slight puppy contrary to Demian Maia with odds of -108 for both Covington and -112 for Maia, also Colby won that float.
In the same way, Usman was favored in eight of the last nine fights from the Octagon, using his final fight for the title against Tyron Woodley viewing The Nigerian Nightmare as an underdog. Obviously, he put on a dominant operation in that struggle to win the title and is presently a perfect 10-0 at the UFC.
I was shocked to see the chances when they opened with Usman favorite as a -300 favorite and Covington coming back at +230. The line moved quickly in Covington’s prefer to in which the odds??are now, but I figured they??should have been considerably nearer and judging from the first line movement, you may be able to have the champion at a greater number closer to this event.
It’s extremely difficult to predict how this battle goes as these two opponents have similar styles in the way they wrestle, use clinch work contrary to the crate and put on a tremendous rate to generally earn??a decisive decision victory. Neither fighter has got enormous power in their hands since Usman has completed just two of his own 10 UFC struggles, while Covington has completed four of the nine wins at the Octagon.
I give the edge to Usman overall however, because of the dimensions. Both guys will seem to have??a strong grappling game and constantly touch??another with strikes that heap up and drill out the competition. Usman is a bit bigger than Covington, which will give him an edge in these clinches and grappling exchanges.?? Chaos might have slightly better elimination, which might give him the advantage in the subsequent rounds, but it might be too little, too late at this time.
