Usman Vs. Masvidal - Colby Covington Predicts "Ragdoll" Victory For UFC 251 Main-Event

UFC star Colby Covington believes Jorge Masvidal will get "ragdolled" by champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 251.


Covington, who has beef with both Usman and Masvidal, expects the UFC welterweight title clash on Saturday to only go one way.

He's also convinced that Masvidal accepted the original offer to face Usman, so he'd avoid being in trouble with the UFC brass.

"I think that Judas Masvidal took exactly what they gave him the first time but now he realised he was going to get put in the doghouse if he didn't take it," 'Chaos' Covington explained.

"Also, it's a better opportunity for him because you know he's on a week's notice. So now he's already got built in excuses after he gets ragdolled by Marty on Saturday night. 'Oh guys, I only had one week to prepare.'

"No, buddy. You had about six months to prepare but you wanted to act like you didn't want to fight, you wanted to stand up for all the fighters. But we know you're nothing but a thirsty hoe looking to get a paycheck."

The former UFC interim welterweight champion added: "Load the house on Usman. I mean that's the easiest bet of all time. It's locker than lock... Everybody's gonna start making excuses for Masvidal immediately after."

Covington put himself forward when Gilbert Burns dropped out of UFC 251 due to a positive COVID-19 test.

But the UFC ultimately booked Usman against Masvidal for their first 'Fight Island' show.

He hasn't fought since his devastating defeat to 'The Nigerian Nightmare' last December.

The 32-year-old will be eyeing a fight with the winner as he looks to return to the Octagon.
