The UFC is headed down to Uruguay for the first time in company history, and they’re bringing a title fight to Montevideo. Women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko defends her belt against Liz Carmouche, who controversially beat her by cuts stoppage way back in 2010. As for the co-main event, which I suspect is the fight most want to see over the headliner, is a guaranteed banger between welterweights Vicente Luque and Mike Perry.
The UFC Newark main event just witnessed former interim welterweight champ Colby Covington outstrike ‘Ruthless’ Robbie Lawler. No horse feathers! Covington started out outgripping his adversary, but then switched gears and threw a ton of volume en route to a five-round decision. The #2 ranked UFC welterweight is now on a seven-fight winning streak and just might have a date with the current undisputed champion, Kamaru Usman.
