After almost two years of back-and-forth against each other, Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley will finally be settling their beef against one another this weekend, in the main event of UFC Vegas 11.
While the two welterweights have been going at it, Tyron Woodley, specifically, would love to end his losing skid by securing a win over his arch-rival and the former UFC Welterweight Champion plans on doing so in the scariest of demeanours.
Tyron Woodley says he won’t shake hands with Covington after knocking him out
The former UFC welterweight champion revealed on a recent episode of TMZ’s Hollywood Beatdown that there will be no handshake after he beats Covington to a pulp in the UFC Fight Night 178 main event.
“I’m definitely going to punch Colby in the face. Punch him, kick him, knee him, elbow him, knock him out, submit him, wake him up, knock him out again,” Woodley said, “Then sweep him off the mat with no handshake. Definitely going to punch Colby Covington and I hate to even (say) his name because he doesn’t even deserve to be on our show. But he’s getting a punch in the face.”
Woodley will look to rebound from back-to-back losses to Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns while Covington, the former interim welterweight champ, will look to put a beating on ‘The Chosen One’ to make up for his fifth-round TKO loss ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ at UFC 245.
Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington will finally throw it down at UFC Vegas 11 in what will be the main event clash between the two. Included in the stacked UFC Vegas 11 card that also features the likes of Donald Cerrone, Khamzat Chimaev and Johnny Walker among other notable names.
