Lawler vs Covington: Tale of the Tape
Robbie Lawler has won 28 matches and lost 13 in the UFC. On the other hand, Colby Covington has won 14 matches while losing 1. His solitary loss was against Warlley Alves, all the way back in December 2015. Lawler, on the other hand, has been around since 2001 and has been quite a dominant force.
However, historically, he has lost almost a third of the matches he has ever participated in. Besides, Covington is younger and more agile, leading us to believe that he has a better shot at winning this one.
I hope Robbie lawler sleeps Colby Covington
