Prior to his fight with Demian Maia, Usman was interviewed by TMZ and in the interview, he opened up about his dislike of Covington. Usman also went on to say that he wants to punch a hole through the head of Covington.

“If I see this beady-eyed, snake-head-lookin’ dude in any room, my heart rate goes up. I just want to punch a hole through his head,” he said.

Usman and Covington had run into each other at the UFC’s 25th Anniversary press conference where they had a backstage altercation as well.

The future

The win against Demian Maia puts Kamaru Usman in a good position in the Welterweight division. He is currently on 12 fight winning streak at the moment and has not tasted defeat since 2013. He is also undefeated in the UFC at the moment with an impressive record of 8-0.

Meanwhile, Colby Covington is set to fight for the UFC Interim Welterweight championship against Rafael Dos Anjos. The fight is scheduled to take place at UFC 225 and Covington is heading into the fight on the back of a win against Maia. Interestingly, Covington is also 13-1 in his career just like Usman. A win against Dos Anjos at UFC 225 will put him in prime position to fight Tyron Woodley who is expected to return in August.

As for Demian Maia, he is on a three-fight losing streak with defeats against reigning champion Woodley, Colby Covington and now, Kamaru Usman. Maia was on a seven-fight winning streak before he lost to Woodley.
