Colby Covington cuts the least amount of weight for any non-HW in the UFC. What an amazing fighter

    I think Colby deserves to be both appreciated and commended for his bravery in fighting guys that routinely outweigh him by 15lbs to fight at his natural weight, and still manages to dominate them with ease.

    For reference, Frankie Edgar who is a tiny 145lber, walks around at 160. Colby only walks around at a little over 180 and still fights at 170.

    Source: https://www.mmafighting.com/2017/10...ieve-more-divisions-will-stop-extreme-cutting

    Meanwhile Woodley, who has admitted to walking around at 205lbs, has never fought at 185 because he is scared of getting flatlined like he did against Nate Marquard. Colby has actually spoken about moving up to 185 in the past because he fears no man, despite the fact that he walks around at 181-183lbs and is less than 180 in the cage.

    Colby will be 2 division champ someday when he gets down to 155 and crushes guys like Tony Ferguson and Conor with ease

    Proof (video is timestamped to Colby telling us his weight):



    Colby will make easy work of Woodley and drown him with his unmatched pressure and cardio (best cardio in MMA history)

    WAR COLBY FOREVER!!!

    He's gotta stay quick and agile, so that he can make sure his hands hover and don't actually touch the pornstars he lied about fucking.

    There are plenty of Welterweights who weigh the same or less than Covington:
    And none of them have a 15 lb advantage over him except Till who's moving up to Middleweight.

    Your list shows that Colby weighs equal to, or less than pretty much every ranked guy

    Perry is a can so he doesn't count, plus he's not ranked

    I’m not a fan of his but this is really bad ass, more fighters should follow suit.

    This thread is rated-clC for cringe

    What kind of fanboyism is this shit? What, Conor lost so you jumping over to Colby?! Bringing that same loser vibe

    In boxing I think GGG walks not much above his fighting weight.

    Funny enough, I always thought of Carl Froch as a big 168lb boxer. But he apparently cut very little weight. Maybe a few pounds.

    I think fighters should only be allowed to cut a certain amount of weight. Maybe 30 days out be no more 12 pounds and by 10 days out, perhaps 8 pounds.

    It would definitely increase the safety of the sport and have guys all fighting in the correct divisions, rather than killing themselves to make a lower weight.

    20 pound weight cuts in a short amount of time is far from healthy.

    Covington is a pretty big welterweight. He's just one of those guys who's lucky enough to have a division almost taylor made for them.

    Stop making threads, nerd. Too much soy in your diet.



    Shortly after breaking the hearts of comic book nerds around the globe, “Chaos” jumped into the cage to pose with a bunch of adult movie stars, then later claimed he was “laying the pipe” with them in order to work on his cardiovascular conditioning.

    Yeah, no.

    “Oh hell no, Colby,” 23 year-old Kelsi Monroe told her social media followers (via Terez Owens).“Maybe you did have sex with three porn stars, but it was not me, so why is my fucking picture up there? Hell no!”

    Not even close to being true

    Most Lightweights are bigger than King Colby, it's just that all of them are too scared to fight monsters like Woodley. Colby isn't scared of anyone and has a vastly superior skill set to guys like Ferguson, Khabib, and Conor

    Ferguson even said he walks around at over 200lbs and provided proof of this

    That'll be nice to know when Woodley knocks his head off.

    And yet your post doesn't have the qualifier that we're talking only about ranked fighters; I proved your assertion wrong and now your backpedalling. Funny how you didn't comment on that 15 lb advantage comment...because you have no comeback for that false statement.

    Additionally, Covington does not cut the least amount of weight for any non-Heavyweight fighter:
    Covington cuts 10 lbs, there are numerous fighters (both ranked and unranked) who cut less than 10 lbs.

    Why should Colby get praise for everything like some special needs child?

    Oh wait... <45>

    RDA lost to Colby because he was fighting a lightweight in Colby, and lightweights are better than welterweights.

    Only watched a bit of the vid you posted but Colby says it’s 181, but I assume this is him slimming down on the approach to fight night? So not really his walk around weight.

    Conor only cuts 13 pounds, same as BJ when he fought at LW. The new breed guys, like Lee and Khabib cut 40-50 pounds. Heck, even max cuts from 180+ down to 145.
