UFC Fight Night Covington vs Lawler Preview:
This Saturday from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey UFC on ESPN 5 comes to you live starting at noon EST. We have a huge main event with two of the best Welterweights in the game today as Colby Covington will take on Ruthless Robbie Lawler in what will more than likely determine the number one contender for the Welterweight Championship. It has been over a year since we've seen Colby Covington in the Octagon. As for Robbie Lawler he is coming off of a controversial loss to Ben Askren in his last fight. The main event for this card should be absolutely insane and I could not be more excited.
On top of the great card we have in store, I will be in attendance for this great event and will be providing some live coverage from the Prudential Center. It's my first UFC event so I am super excited and can't wait to be able to see the action live. Make sure you are following Ginger Thread on all social media so you can see the live coverage.
