UFC Newark: Covington Vs Lawler Results
UFC returned to New Jersey, New York, with UFC Newark (UFC Fight Night: Covington vs. Lawler) this past weekend. In the main event, former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler took on former interim champion Colby Covington. Colby was riding high after picking up a string of impressive wins. Lawler on the other hand was coming off a controversial, disappointing loss to Ben Askren. There was more than a win at stake for Colby, with a win arguably getting him a title shot next against Kamaru Usman.
In the co-main event of UFC Newark, Jim Miller faced Clay Guida in an explosive clash of the veterans. Antonina Shevchenko and Mickey Gall competed on the preliminary card.
