Usman vs Covington 2, the rematch
At the end of 2019, UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and top contender Colby Covington engaged in one of the best fights of the year. On Saturday in NY, the two will return to fight for the welterweight belt.
Two years ago, Usman managed to win by technical KO in the fifth round, but the fight was balanced until the last blow, with the two MMA wrestling specialists exchanging a total of 318 blows. Usman, now widely considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in the federation, has won three consecutive victories since that fight (he has never lost in UFC), first defeating Jorge Masvidal (by decision), then eliminating Gilbert Burns, and then eliminating Masvidal in the rematch.
In the meantime, Covington returned to the ring with a knockout victory in September 2020 against Tyron Woodley, but has not fought since. Since their first fight, both fighters have also changed their training camp. After a long period at Sanford MMA, Usman now trains with the famous Trevor Wittman.
On the other hand, Covington left American Top Team after quarreling with half of the fighters who trained at the gym, settling with the MMA Masters.
Usman vs Covington Prediction
The first challenge between Usman and Covington showcased many of the similarities between the two athletes. On paper, the two would be evenly matched. However, Usman seems to have strengthened all of his abilities. There is no reason to believe that Covington, who has only fought once since losing to Usman, has found that kind of breakthrough that would allow him to be superior to Usman. The prediction is for Usman to win in the third round by technical knockout.
