Here we go again. Colby Covington, aka the new Chael Sonnen better be ready to back up his trash talk when he steps in to the cage with Rafael Dos Anjos. The bout goes down on Saturday at UFC 225 in Chicago and ahead of it Covington has been dissing Dos Anjos and anyone else within shouting distance. We swear he’s Voldemort and has put a spell on his name that alerts him when another fighter says it so he spring in to action. With welterweight champ Tyron Woodley on the shelf since July of last year he claims he and RDA are fighting for the ‘real belt’. We can’t say we blame him. A lot of fighters stall for one reason or the other so they can remain the champ. Marketing and movie offers come easily when you hold the belt. Check out Colby’s claims…
CM Punk may very well be fighting his last time in the UFC this Saturday at UFC 225 in Chicago. He lost quickly to Mickey Gall in his debut and Dana White will surely cut Punk from the roster if he can’t beat the relatively inexperienced Mike Jackson.

Yoel Romero is set to take on UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker for a second time at UFC 225. This Saturday in Chicago we will see if Romero can live up to his potential by capturing the title – assuming he can make weight. We have faith in the ‘Soldier of God’ to do so. Their first bout ended in a unanimous decision victory for Robert and almost a year off for the champ when it was revealed in January that an improperly treated staph infection put him in serious condition. Saturday we will find out if he has fully recovered. Check out the latest Inside the Octagon focusing on the bout.

Colby Covington ladies and gentleman. He’ll be here all night, try the veal. Colby can’t seem to stop himself from speaking his mind when his opinions begin to form in his brain.
