The Chosen One is the underdog according to the best NFL sportsbooks. Woodley foresees a violent end to the fight Covington. they will headline the UFC Vegas 11 card this Saturday night. Woodley, the erstwhile UFC welterweight champion, has had a heated feud with Covington since the beginning of his title reign.
Over a year after he lost the belt to Kamaru Usman, that rivalry is still peaking. The pair will once and for all settle the score this Saturday. Woodley made an ominous prediction for the outcome of this long overdue grudge match.
“I want to knock him out to the point that when they’re raising my hand and they’re talking, they’re still gathering him,” Woodley said. “Hopefully, they’re stretchering him out and trying to get his legs to unstiffen, and still trying to get the mouthpiece out of his mouth. . . No I’m not gonna shake his hand. I’m not gonna shake his coach’s hand most likely. This is for real for me.” Woodley is confident Covington will leave the Octagon on a stretcher this Saturday. But then Covington feels it will be the other way around.
“We are going to see the best Tyron Woodley we have ever seen in this fight,” Covington said in August. “Speaking of his last two fights, those guys, yeah they beat him on the judge’s scorecard, this fight ain’t going to the judge’s scorecards. I’m leaving no doubt that I am the best welterweight in the world. I’m going to add another world champion to my resume. My long list of amazing resume I already have. I’m going to finish him, it is not going to the judge’s decision I promise you that. He will get left unconscious inside that Octagon. If Tyron Woodley does not leave the Octagon on September 19 live on ESPN on a stretcher then I didn’t do my job.”
Betting Colby Covington
Chaos is the favorite per the best offshore gambling sites. Kamaru Usman thinks Covington could be ‘the best and possibly the worst’ thing to happen to Woodley. He says that the former welterweight champion needs to find a way to defuse Chaos’ offense. “I think that this is the best and possibly the worst-case scenario for Tyron Woodley,” Usman said. “As far as style matchups, I think this is probably one of the worst stylistic matchups for him after coming off back-to-back fights with guys that love kind of pressure him. Guys that can grapple as well and guys that kind of throw some volume.”
Conversely, Woodley is kind of an expert as far as southpaw fighters go. The Nigerian Nightmare feels T-Wood could at some point find a home for that overhand right. “On the flip side, this is a tremendous matchup for Tyron Woodley because Tyron Woodley is a specialist when it comes to dealing with southpaws,” Usman said. “He knows how to angle off, to kind of guide them into that big right hand that he has. Of course, the one thing that I feel like I’m being pulled in again is Tyron is giving me this ‘I’m back, I’m back, I’m back.’ So I’m starting to drink the Kool-Aid again. Maybe the Tyron Woodley of old is back.” I’m intrigued by this matchup,” he added. “I can’t wait to see it happen. Two guys that I’m familiar with and I’ll be watching closely.”
