Colby Covington made sure to party right after his UFC 272 win. Colby effectively used his wrestling to choke Jorge and control the fight. His dominance in all 5 rounds meant he was the victor of the Battle of Miami.
Just hours after his win, Colby was spotted at XS Nightclub at the Wynn Hotel celebrating his win. Covington, who never travels alone, is often spotted with a group of girls and friends as part of his shtick and he didn’t disappoint when he showed up to the party with around 40 friends. Colby was given a royal reception including a “Miami King” note card. Colby went to the DJ booth and partied with music star Marshmello. However, it seems like the champions’ parties were just part of his gimmick as, unlike most who go partying, he soon left. After about an hour of partying, Colby left to recover at home.
Colby doesn’t seem thrilled with his performance despite coming out with the win. He says it’s been a very emotional fight after he and Jorge were once teammates, roommates and cornered each other. He feels he hasn’t been able to show his skills to the best of his ability and looks forward to doing so next time he’s in the octagon.
While his performance was dominant and there is no question who is the better fighter, it could have been a better outing. However, he is still the king of Miami now and has urged Jorge to leave Miami immediately as Miami is not big enough for the two of them.

The next step for Colby Covington?
Covington now ranks second at welterweight while Kamaru Usman still retains his No. 1 title. Covington’s latest win puts him back in contention for the title. Hold on to your transgressions because it will be a long time before Covington faces The Nigerian Nightmare. If Covington defeats the winner of UFC 273, the match is to be expected sooner or later.
Usman is more than ready to fight Colby Covington. In an interview, he hints at a possible trilogy fight against “Chaos”. With a front row seat at UFC 272, between two fighters he has twice defended his title against, Kamaru already predicted Colby would come out on top over Masvidal.
There’s still a chance these two wrestlers could have more pit stops along the way. Covington has tried to provoke Dustin Poirier into a challenge that could take place later this year. Even Kamaru Usman spoke of a possible showdown that could take place between him and Canelo Alvarez in the boxing ring.
