    Colby at it again. haha

    Covington - "I don't think he's that impressive. He couldn't even finish a Real Estate Agent. That's f*cking sad. He just goes forward and looks for takedowns and pressure, he doesn't have any striking power. He's not a well-rounded fighter like myself."

    As obnoxious as he is, he may have a point though. There are some solid grapplers at 170, and these guys are quite a bit bigger & stronger than LW.

    What say you? Can Khabib make the transition up to welterweight and be competitive with the top 5? He did already beat RDA, albeit at 155.

    Colby sounds hopeful and sexually aroused

    That real estate agent I reckon, would kick Colbys ass.

    Love Khabib, but even he knows this. Thats why hes willing to kill hisself to make 55. His reach and frame wouldnt translate that well in the division.

    He seems to develop a Schaub-esque obsession but with balls.

    Also I don't see how skill-wise he has anything over Khabib. Actually I'd say Khabib is a better version of him.

    He has pretty short reach even for 155 yes, but frame??? The guy is freakishly strong for his size and would maul WWs on the ground as well.

    Colby is compensating for floating hand on pornstars syndrome.

    Khabib will be fine at 170, will definitely be more competitive but it's all good.

    Definitely can maul the striker WW's but as for the big grapplers like Woodley, Covington, and Maia? Dont know about that.

    Colby is an underdog against a guy Khabib dominated and Ferguson chased out of the division. WW is not this stacked murderers row anymore, esp with Bellator leeching talent

    He can outstrike Maia for sure. Woodley, Covington and usman are the tough as well as wonderboy

    Would be competitive, for sure, but fighters cut weight for a reason. Woodley KOs him most likely.

    I don't think it's going to happen but I hope RDA butchers him.

    Sadly we're going to see a wrestling match most likely.
