Colby Covington picks up dominant decision win over Robbie Lawler
Colby Covington vs. Robbie Lawler full fight video to see Covington score a lopsided win over former UFC welterweight champion Lawler at UFC on ESPN 5 in Newark, N.J., on Aug. 3, 2019.
Facing one of the division’s most respected punchers, Covington showed no fear in this fight, pressuring Lawler from minute one and dominating the duration of the bout. Covington swept the scorecards to earn his eighth straight victory, a streak that included wins over Rafael dos Anjos and Demian Maia.
Covington’s next fight would be a championship bout against Kamaru Usman at UFC 245. Though Covington fell short in that outing, he aims to stay in the title mix when he takes on rival Tyron Woodley this Saturday in the main event of UFC Vegas 11 on ESPN+.
