MMA Odds and Ends for Tuesday: Kamaru Usman calls out Colby Covington

Usman calls out Covington

Welterweight top contender Kamaru Usman posted on Twitter yesterday asking for a fight against fellow top contender Colby Covington. Both Usman and Covington come from elite wrestling backgrounds and have exploded up the rankings in the UFC welterweight division. Both fighters have also had problems getting opponents to accept fights against them and neither has been able to convince current champion Tyron Woodley to put his belt on the line against them.

A bout between the two contenders makes sense. Will it happen? We'll just have to wait and find out.
