Former interim UFC welterweight champion, Colby Covington recently took to Instagram to take another shot at his former opponent and current champion, Kamaru Usman.

Covington is expected to face Usman next in what will be a rematch between the duo. He has earned a finish over former champion, Tyron Woodley in his last fight. Usman, on the other hand, is coming off a spectacular knockout win against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261.
The first fight between Usman and Covington was touted to be one of the best title fights in recent UFC history. So, it’s understandable why the promotion wants to match the two fighters again. Also, Covington believes officials ruined his chances of winning during the first fight and he would have had a better chance of winning otherwise.
No official date for the fight has been announced yet. However, it is expected that both fighters will collide before the end of this year. What timeline the UFC chooses to proceed with, remains to be seen.
