Usman (20-1 MMA) and Covington (16-3 MMA) originally collided back at UFC 245 in December of 2019, with the ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ emerging victorious by way of a thrilling fifth round TKO.

Since then, Kamaru Usman had gone to defend his welterweight title on three occasions, stopping the aforementioned Jorge Masvidal and Gilbert Burns in his two most previous efforts.

Meanwhile, Colby Covington was ending a thirteen month hiatus at UFC 268. ‘Chaos’ had last competed in September of 2020, where he earned a TKO victory over Tyron Woodley.

During last night’s post-fight press, Covington requested that Jorge Masvidal pullout of his upcoming fight with Leon Edwards, this so they could end their feud inside of the Octagon in early 2022.

’Gamebred’ responded to ‘Chaos’ on Sunday with the following jab on Twitter.

”Gonna expose the fake real soon. Like father like son.” – Masvidal captioned a photo of Covington and US President Joe Biden.
