“Colby Covington says” is one of the craziest ways to start an article.

Colby has been waiting patiently for his chance since before Darren Till got dismantled by former champ Tyron Woodley. We felt for him initially for the previous snubs until Dana White came out and claimed he had offered Covington fights that were turned down.
