At the main event of UFC on ESPN 5, former interim champion Colby Covington defeated Robbie Lawler via unanimous decision (50-44, 50-45, 50-45) at the Prudential Center in a dominating fashion.

Covington dominated Lawler for the full five rounds. He managed to take Lawler down several times throughout the fight and by the latter half of the fight, he even dominated Lawler with his striking. He managed to land over 600 strikes on the 37-year old Lawler.

This win over Lawler sets up a fight with UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman who Covington took no time in calling out. He took a dig at former champion Matt Hughes.

Hey, let’s talk about the lesson we learned tonight,” Covington said. “It’s a strong lesson that Robbie should have learned from his good buddy Matt Hughes. You stay off the tracks when the train is coming through, junior. Don’t matter if it’s the Trump train or the Colby train. Get out the way.” (H/T – The Athletic)

After the fight, he also thanked the Trump family for making it to the fight.

I was truly inspired when the first family came,” Covington said referring to Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. “They’re keeping America great!”

Here is how Twitter reacted to Covington’s victory.
