We all knew about the bad blood leading up to Tyron Woodley vs. Colby Covington, but tonight we finally witnessed both men settle their differences inside the UFC Octagon. There was no love lost going into the main event, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
The talk was finally over however. Instead, we witnessed the the ending of a well documented rivalry. As the fight began, we knew there wasn’t going to be a touch of gloves and with that, the intensity of the fight grew immensely.
The pressure from Colby Covington seemed to be the difference maker in this fight, with “Chaos” landing strikes at will while controlling the clinch. Going into the fifth, Tyron Woodley’s coaches knew he needed a finish and stressed that to their fighter. It was Colby who got the finish, however, but not how he may have wanted it. It appeared to be an injury to Woodley’s ribs that made him unable to continue. For Colby Covington, bragging rights will be his until the end of time after his dominate performance over his long time foe, Tyron Woodley.
Here is how the pros reacted to the TKO victory by Colby Covington at UFC Vegas 11.

Love him or hate him Covington can fight ! @ColbyCovMMA Very hard to see this last stretch of fights for my man @TWooodley. That’s like 15 rounds in a row where he hasn’t been able to get going. Gotta take a real look at what’s next. But great win by Colby!!

Why is he asking for his belt? You lost that belt bud. #UFCVegas11

Colby needs 1 more win before a title shot . Woodley is 38 and loss 3 in a row , was the underdog . Leon Edwards or Steven Thompson makes sense for his next fight !

I think Woodley retired mid fight #UFCVegas11
