Now, with Luque at the helm, Muhammad has a task to climb the ranks and secure the title shot, as well as settle some business from the past.
Belal Muhammad says Colby Covington doesn’t fight legitimate fighters who have records straight on their backs
In the media throng before the fight, Muhammad talks about all sorts of things Khamzat Chimaevs performance at UFC273 on his upcoming fight this weekend at UFC on ESPN 34. In the midst of this, Muhammad also thinks of Colby Covington, who most recently fought his fellow welterweight and friend-turned-rival Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272where Covington swept his wrestling over Masvidal and claimed the unanimous decision victory, just as Muhammad defeated Thompson in his final bout.
“Colby fights nothingtough fighters“ says Mohammed “He’s fighting Masvidal with 2 losses, he’s fighting Woodley with 3 losses. He’s trying to work his way back to a cover photo by evoking a 55 in Dustin Poirier. He then tries to talk his way into another title shot. He didn’t beat top 5 real legit guys winning. concludes Muhammad.
What do you think of Muhammad’s assessment of Covington’s career? Do you think he’s right?
