Colby Covington will face Killer Khamzat

Khamzat Chimaev, in Aljamain Sterling's opinion, is a poor opponent for Colby Covington.

Chimaev (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) maintained his unblemished record this past Saturday at UFC 279 by running Kevin Holland

through for a first-round submission. Sterling believes that "Borz" will inevitably become a UFC champion,

but since Kamaru Usman is scheduled to face recently minted welterweight champion Leon Edwards in the following fight of a trilogy,

Chimaev will probably need to compete one more before getting a shot at the championship.

Former interim champion Covington (17-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) appears to be the ideal opponent if it takes place at welterweight

Dana White has already proposed this matchup. Sterling, however, doesn't believe Covington will accept that challenge.
