Heck of a Morning: Why Colby Covington vs. Khamzat Chimaev is absolutely the fight to make


Khamzat Chimaev is still making headlines after his massive weight miss, and dominant win over Kevin Holland at UFC 279. When Colby Covington is ready to return, and should Chimaev want to prove he can be a welterweight, the UFC should absolutely book that fight for a number of reasons.

A new edition of Heck of a Morning features Mike Heck, MMA Fighting, as a free-for-all Friday. Mike discusses the reasons for the booking of Bryce Mitchell vs. Movsar Evloev in Nov., what the stakes are, and how it might make sense on the calendar if the fight is possible prior to the end of 2015. Additionally, listener questions include Bryce Mitchell vs. Movsar Evloev being booked for Nov. 5, Tony Ferguson’s future following his submission loss to Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC 279, A.J. McKee’s future, Marlon Moraes heading to the PFL, and more.

You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.
