Kamaru Usman: Colby Covington made 'tremendous mistake' not fighting Leon Edwards

  Kamaru Usman: Colby Covington made 'tremendous mistake' not fighting Leon Edwards thinks dropped the ball in a big way by not stepping in to fight Leon Edwards next month. After Khamzat Chimaev fell out of his UFC Fight Night headliner vs. Edwards (18-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) on March 13 in Las Vegas, UFC president Dana White said he was interested in h aving Covington (16-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC) step in as a replacement. That failed to materialize, and Belal Muhammad ended up taking the fight. Covington, for his part, said fighting Edwards would be nothing more than “charity,” despite both being highly ranked in the welterweight division.

Despite notching a huge victory at UFC Fight Night 185, Derrick Lewis may be forced to sit out for a long period of time.

Lewis (25-7 MMA, 16-5 UFC), who scored a big knockout win of Curtis Blaydes (14-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) in the second round of their main event clash in Las Vegas, will need doctor clearance for his right hand and wrist or he could face up to six months on the sidelines.

Also facing potential 180-day terms is Charles Rosa, who suffered a unanimous decision loss to Darrick Minner. Rosa (13-5 MMA, 4-5 UFC) must have an X-ray on his right hand.

Surging heavyweight Chris Daukaus (11-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) also needs an X-ray on his right hand after stopping Aleksei Oleinik in the first round.
