    Anyone else think like me that Wonderboy would beat seven shades of shite out of Colby.

    I'm not sure WB would be Usman but I think he'd have his way with pillow hands Covington.

    Anyone agree?

    I think so, he would pick him apart at range so bad.

    I actually agree. Wonderboy has pretty good takedown defense and would absolutely tear covington up on the feet. Colby doesn't have the power to threaten wonderboy with like woodley had.

    Knowing my luck, Colby would win.

    Quite possibly, if he can circle off the fence and stay at range Colby would get lit up.

    I dislike Colby, but he savagely beats Wonderboy for 5 rounds. I know styles make fights, but so do ages. Wonderboy would be 39 before he ever got a shot at Colby. Unless Usman beats the career out of Colby he should be too much for old man Thompson.

    Depends if Colby chooses to engage in grapple fucking him or not.

    Colby would pressure Wonderboy and win a one-sided decision.

    It’s all about if Covington can get takedowns or not.

    WonderBoi is arguably the best fighter in the UFC to never touch gold, also remains one of the hardest stylistic matchups in the top 10 of the UFC for anyone, that is until he isn’t (prime and age related)

    Yeah, that's a bad match-up for Colby. I also wouldn't favor him against Leon or Burns. The reason he wanted the Jorge fight was because it was the only top 5 opponent he was confident he could beat. Still not sure why they gave him another title shot.

    Colby has that Holloway cardio to spam whatever he wants non-stop for 5-10 rounder.

    Based on WB last fights, I didn't saw much power comes out of him. If Colby can deter WB away from fighting at rangy distance, I think we might see something interesting.

    Though Colby infinitely has to use more kicks, and something more than a looping hook.

    You think Colby couldn't beat Leon or Burns? That is interesting.

    Really interesting match up. Classic Striker vs Grappler. I don't really see how Colby has much in the stand up for WB.

    I think it depends where it happens. In the smaller Apex cage Colby has more of a shot because it will be easier for him to cut off the ring and work some wrestling and clinch.

    In a regular cage, I think Colby struggles to cut off the ring and gets picked a part on his way to a one sided decision loss.

    WB is the most interesting match up for Usman IMO hope that fight gets made.
