Covington is set to challenge welterweight champion Leon Edwards in the headline event of UFC 296 on December 16th. Daniel Cormier is a person who has special respect for Colby Covington and his career. The fact that he started from zero and never had certain advantages over his opponents speaks volumes about how much Covington used his potential.

Despite everything, Colby is one of the best UFC fighters who managed to defeat his opponents in various ways. “I believe for everyone we watch in this beautiful sport that we have the honor of calling, no one has done more with less than Colby Covington,” Cormier said during the The Joe Rogan Experience episode, as quoted by mmajunkieusatoday.com!

“He’s not the biggest, he’s not the fastest, he’s not the strongest. But, he wins. With those abilities, he has become a two-time NCAA All-American, he has been the UFC interim champion, he’s fought for the belt two times, and he’s fighting for the belt another time."

Covington has put in hard work since the start of his career.

He didn't hold back, understanding that to excel, he needed to outwork everyone else. He stands as a prime example that with dedication and self-belief, nothing is impossible. He will have another chance to show UFC fans what a quality fighter he is, even though many already know that.

Colby wants to have absolute dominance! “But nothing about Colby jumps off the page. He’s meat and potatoes. As meat and potatoes as it gets. Volume and cardio, but that all comes with hard work. He’s not going to jump higher than anybody, he’s not going to run faster than anybody.

But with his abilities, he has done that. That’s crazy. We have seen many people like this that don’t accomplish what Colby Covington has accomplished”.
