UFC on ESPN 5 – Covington vs Lawler
August 3 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm MST
In need of a main event for August’s UFC on ESPN 5 card, a surprise welterweight main event was put together between Colby Covington and Robbie Lawler.
Covington (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC), the former interim UFC welterweight champ, has been sitting out since June 2018 waiting for a shot at the undisputed belt. It seemed that opportunity may have started to slip away, though, so he decided to accept the fight with ex-titleholder Lawler (28-13 MMA, 13-7 UFC), who he called the “last real champion” at 170 pounds.
