Colby Covington Reacts to UFC 228 Main Event, Calls for Showdown with Woodley at MSG

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 8, 2018

Now that UFC 228 is in the books, Colby Covington has some thoughts on what reigning welterweight champion Tyron Woodley should do next.

Woodley retained his belt with a second-round submission of Darren Till in Saturday’s headliner at American Airlines Arena in Dalllas, giving him his fourth successful championship defense. “The Chosen One” was originally scheduled to face Covington at the event, but “Chaos” could not compete on the desired date after undergoing surgery to correct a nasal issue.

Covington, who was stripped of the interim title he won by defeated Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225 earlier this year, took to Twitter to call for a showdown with Woodley at Madison Square Garden. That of, course, is the site of UFC 230, which takes place on Nov. 3 and does not yet have a headliner confirmed.

Covington also had a message for Till, who was overwhelmed after stepping up to take the fight. “The Gorilla” suffered his first loss in 19 professional outings at the hands of Woodley. According to Covington, Till was "never ready for primetime."
