Colby Covington has a theory about why Nurmagomedov competed only in the lightweight division his entire career instead of moving up to welterweight. "I think I'm the man and I'm the reason that he doesn't come up to 170 (pounds) in the first place," Covington told Submission Radio on Wednesday. "There's a reason Khabib cuts all that weight. ... He wants to beat up little midgets."OK, that's cool, Khabib, you beat up a bunch of little guys, a bunch of little midgets.
