The relationship between Dana White and Colby Covington is not as exemplary as we say, but that did not prevent the President of the UFC from recognizing the hardness of the former 170-pound interim champion.
In the stellar UFC 245, Covington suffered his second professional loss to Kamaru Usman in what was the closest fight of the evening.
Before jumping into the fourth round, the ATT member told his corner that he thought he had a broken jaw.
Dana White and Colby Covington had their issues in the build-up to #UFC245, but the UFC boss still had something nice to say about him afterward.

“Having a broken jaw in the second or third round and that has been able to almost finish the fight is impressive. No matter how big his mouth is or all the things he says, the guy can fight. He is talented and hard. He came with a plan, not only what he was going to do during the fight, but also later, but Usman neutralized it.”
