    In their first fight both were claiming they were the better wrestler and neither shot for a single takedown

    We all want to know who the better wrestler is

    Well Colby definitely should try to wrestle Usman, because he'll get pieced up on the feet this time.

    Will they? Sure. If Usman wants to embarrass Colby even more.

    We might see some wall n stall from Usman (being the bigger guy), maybe a brief takedown just to mix things up and keep Colby guessing, but no cardio intensive wrestling from either guy. They both know whoever gets tired first is fucked.

    I think Covington will try to mix in takedowns with his punches.

    There's a reason they didn't wrestle the first time. Takes alot of energy to wrestle for position. Whoever gasses first is fucked.

    Fight will probably look something like GSP/Kos 2

    Colby will try this time or he's getting knocked out earlier

    Usmans striking isnt very good, his best chance is on the feet

    Colby has to, even if he outlands Usman 2 to 1 his weak MAGA punches can't hurt anyone.

    I think Colby definitely will. Usman will probably use defensive wrestling, as I believe he is very confident in his hands especially after his last fight. Which is likely smarter for Usman, as he will preserve more cardio.

    No, there's no need for it.

    Might happen in the trilogy or the 5th time it's rebooked.

    This, I don't see anything that Colby can do in this fight. Usman by ko round 2.

    Here’s the thing, Colby was the better fighter in the original, Usman faked the nut shot and eye poke because he was gassing hard and he used it to recover, if it wasn’t given I think Colby would’ve finished him. HOWEVER, Usman has improved so much since that fight that I believe it really won’t be close in any sense, I think Colby will get Ko’d like Masvidal round 2

    Usmans striking has improved dramatically since he’s become champ. He’s not the best in the division, but with his long arms and athleticism and obvious desire to learn, he’s done pretty good. Showcasing 3 kos in 4 defenses.
