Well, he's had three title shots now, and he's lost three title fights. Covington was dominated in the fight by Edwards, and despite losing by unanimous decision, he claims that he won but the judging was rigged against him.

If the UFC had a DMF belt (Dooshiest MoFo), then Covington would win that hands down. But I think that when it comes to legit fighting, his days as a promising young prospect are behind him. He's an aging veteran at 35yo, and with 3 title shots already being handed to him without success, and him looking less impressive as time goes on, it's getting difficult to see the rationale for a 4th chance.

He called out Stephen Thompson after the fight, and it actually might be quite entertaining to see Thompson, aka the NMF, using Covington as a striking bag, but Thompson is himself 40yo, and it wouldn't be a road leading back to the belt.

Totally one sided fight, which I called since the start because Leon is the superior fighter in so many ways. Yes Colby is a great wrestler, but Leon's wrestling has been very underrated and works with one of the best wrestling coaches in England.

Colby turned heel because he is a boring fighter for the most part and always has been and was about to get cut from the company. I personally dont find his act interesting in the least bit. Imagine building your whole persona as a fighter around bowing down to another man.

Of course he called out Wonderboy, as he is in his 40's and Colby might actually have a small shot to win that one. I personally want Dana to feed him to Shavkat, who will destroy him and then give Shavkat the winner of Belal and Leon. That way you get rid of dead weight Colby and give Shavkat a warm up before a title shot.
