The opening odds for this fight have Chimaev as a slight favorite:

Colby Covington, +140
Khamzat Chimaev, -160

-

Khamzat Chimaev is coming off of an absolute mauling of Kevin Holland, while Covington has been sidelined since beating Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272.

-

Trash talking aside (which will be absolutely legendary), this fight is absolutely fascinating.

Covington would seem to be the perfect opponent to frustrate Chimaev - a strong wrestler with an unlimited gas tank and great chin.

Chimaev has looked practically indestructible, though he did get taken to deep waters by Gilbert Burns.

How would his gas tank hold up in a 5-round fight?

Could Covington keep the fight standing? Could he take Chimaev to the ground?

This fight is one of the most compelling that the UFC could offer up right now.
