Colby “Chaos” Covington is going up against Tyron Woodley in the main event of this action packed card. A few years ago this would have been a fight that would have been huge and one that could have been a coin flip. At this point in his career Woodley is a shell of his old self though. We are picking Covington as the must have not just because of his talent but because of how bad Woodley has looked as of late. In his last two fights Woodley has absolutely gotten picked apart. We believe that Covington will be able to do exactly what Woodley’s last two opponents have done and land a whole bunch of strikes as well as land take downs which is not something that really ever happened before to Woodley. Well Covington may not get the finish as Woodley has still shown the ability to not get finished. We believe that Covington will still score enough to make him well worth his price tag and possibly could even get the finish as he does have sneaky power.
