  • Colby and masvidal look weak compared to usman like they need to move down in weight

  • I'm all for going against the grain (even if you're the only one) but you gotta pick you're fights. Hate only begets hate, people.

  • Colby kicked him low.. a fighter gets time to recover from a foul.. there was nothing out of the ordinary or dirty about that.. there is no requirement that the foul shot actually hits the testicles for a fighter to get a chance to recover from the foul.. Colby is either too stupid to get this or he hopes that you are.. and the eye poke.. how did he pinky joust Usman's eye and not know that he did that? he knew it happened and hoped it would put him over the top.

  • I get and see it so CLEARLY, that things between Colby vs Usman is just like Colby is telling all the times, when he is asked about what kind of man and fighter Usman is, and what a false play it was from Usman in their 1st match. - Few days and there is going to be new welterweight champ 💥💎 GO COLBY 👍

  • He didn’t do any media because he couldn’t talk. Lol. At least admit he’s a fake

  • This is the end of Covington, usman is active, growing, improving, Covington on the other hand took one fight vs old Woodley, in how long? Love this guy but this will be the last time we hear from him

  • Broken jaw or not man, even if he broke your jaw you should wear it like a badge of honor considering you continued the fight and almost went the distance.

  • You brought all the hate on yourself by acting like some racist a-hole at a time the accidentally elected dummy bunker boy was spewing his racism bs. Own up, buddy. You did this to yourself.

  • Pulling for Colby 100%. It's amazing how a guy who could make 155 has dominated everyone other than Snoozeman. Marty is so big, strong and durable but Colby is as tenacious as a freaking badger. CHAOS WILL REIGN THIS TIME !

  • I like how people talk like the first fight was close, when he got stopped. 🤣

    L LL L24 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • I thought having jaw broken and STILL putting up that good of a perfomance for 2 rounds really showed how tough he is. He was a warrior. I don't understand how people made that into an insult. I am really hoping he wins the next fight! Rivalries like this don't come very often!

  • The low kick…wasn’t. However, that was a legit eye poke. It happens though. The fight went on. Then Colby got rocked.

  • It’s going to be even sweeter to see this whining byatch get whooped again. See what excuses he comes up with then. Maybe this time he can prepare them for by post-fight and not run and hide for months before resurfacing with his revisionist account. Winners make history, losers make excuses. Exhibit A.
