UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman is the current UFC champion with the most title defenses, therefore he went all in to disprove Colby Covington’s accusations of being stripped by the organization. This is in reaction to one of Covington’s allegations in an ESPN-MMA interview, in which he said that Usman was hesitant to do the rematch with him and that the UFC warned him that if he didn’t take the fight, Usman’s championship status would be removed.

Before their battle at UFC 268 on November 6, 2021, in Madison Square Garden, New York, USA, both Usman and Colby have been engaged in a verbal war. Usman beat Covington via TKO in the fifth round in their first fight over two years ago in 2019. Usman is coming off a brilliant second-round KO victory against Jorge Masvidal earlier this year. Covington last fought in September of last year, defeating Tyron Woodley by TKO in the fourth round.

First, Kamaru Usman responded to Colby Covington’s claims of being stripped in an interview with UFC Legend Daniel Cormier. “How are they gonna take the belt? I think I’m the only champ who fought two times already this year. I’m not sure,” said Usman. “But I believe I’m the only champ. It’s gonna be three in a calendar year. What champ’s really doing that?”

Usman also explains why he wants to fight Covington again, despite winning the first fight. “I chose to take this fight because… there’s something you feel when you get into a certain fight to where you lose yourself in the fight, that you’re just having fun. And it was something in that fight to where I was having fun. I’m smiling. I was never tired at all. I’m smiling. I’m laughing at him. I’m talking to him. I’m calling him— ‘Quit tryin’ to be a bitch. Quit crying’’. I’m talking to him in there the whole time.”
