Colby Covington and Leon Edwards Set for Incredible Welterweight Bout at UFC 296
Action Packed’s UFC correspondent Brett Okamoto sat down with Colby Covington for an exclusive interview to discuss the upcoming welterweight main event fight against Leon Edwards at UFC 296. Covington, the former interim welterweight champion and top UFC contender, expressed his intensity and confidence for the bout. The American welterweight stated that the matchup against Edwards “will be a great fight” and he has trained for months for the occasion. Covington made it clear that this fight is meaningful to him, and will make a statement at UFC 296.
Although Covington is a huge favorite in the match, he is taking nothing for granted and is putting in extra hours in the gym to make sure that he is ready for the fight. Last month, Covington shared highlights of his grueling training 3 weeks out from the fight, including boxing, muay thai drills, and intense weights sessions. We can expect nothing less than an incredible fight when these two veterans of the welterweight division face off.
