Colby Covington || Breakdown • Skill Study • Highlights ᴴᴰ
DISCLAIMER: Please don’t be so petty as to discredit my work based on the person covered, as I often say the athletes I cover may as well be silhouettes.
With that said / in mind, here I want to focus on cardio as a weapon, especially when grappling is your base martial art. Colby’s striking is improved, though certainly not his strength. Similar to the Diaz brothers, but with a wrestling heavy base, by “putting a pace on you” that favors his cardio, and draws out the opponents. Often times, in the late rounds they lose their way.
In 2011 (ATT owner) Dan Lambert was looking to boost his gym’s wrestling training and Covington was one of a few people recruited to help do so (OSU collegiate wrestling All-American and two-time Pac-10 Conference champion). Shortly after, Covington began pursuing a professional (MMA) career and moved to FLA to join American Top Team.
Since then he has gone from smiley-faced, bowing martial artist to full-blown X-Pac heat, to company disputes and has certainly caused some “Chaos” among fighters for being a little reckless and/or tactless with his “trash-talk game”. His ability is what I will focus on, so without further ado…
