Pros Pick: UFC 245 ‘Usman vs. Covington’

Dec 11, 2019

The ordering process for Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-views has changed: UFC 245 is only available on ESPN+ in the U.S.

UFC 245’s main event is a bout that has drawn the attention of fans and fighters alike. Everyone has an opinion on how the Dec. 14 bout will play out inside Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. Several fighters from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Bellator MMA, the Professional Fighters League and One Championship graciously gave Sherdog their personal predictions on the highly-anticipated contest.

Ever since Kamaru Usman took the welterweight strap from titleholder Tyron Woodley in dominant fashion in March, the mixed martial arts world has had their hopes pinned on a showdown between the new champion and Colby Covington. However, the industry had to wait 11-months as injuries, drawn-out negotiations, a hotel buffet skirmish and an August Covington and Robbie Lawler bout played out before an agreement was finalized. Now, the moment has come as arguably the two best 170-pound fighters in the organization finally face off.

Usman Picks: 10
Covington Picks: 4
No Pick: 1
