Former UFC heavyweight champion, Andrei Orlovsky, shared his opinion on the upcoming welterweight title fight between Britain’s Leon Edwards and American Colby Covington.
“I’d like to see Edwards, but in all likelihood the abominable Covington will wind him up with his wrestling,” “Pitbull” said in response to fan questions on social media. “He hasn’t fought in a long time though, everyone remembers my Cuban comrade did him some health damage. So we’ll see. I’d like to see Edwards win of course, but I think Covington will win.”
Recall that the fight between Leon Edwards and Colby Covington will headline UFC 296, which will take place on December 16 in Las Vegas, and Andrei Orlovsky will share the octagon with Waldo Cortez-Acosta on January 13.
