Heck of a Morning: Will Colby Covington be able to bounce back after forgettable UFC 296 performance?

Colby Covington had the Las Vegas crowd in the palm of his hands throughout UFC 296 fight week, including the press conference where he took a controversial shot at Leon Edwards, his walk to the octagon for the main event, and the last-minute powwow with Donald Trump. However, then the fight began, and he was dominated by the champion and put forth an effort that has left the MMA community scratching their heads.

On an all-new edition of Heck of a Morning, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck reacts to UFC 296, Edwards’ successful title defense, and if Covington will be able to bounce back in the eyes of fans following the worst performance of his career. Additionally, listener questions include whether or not Belal Muhammad should be next for Edwards, where Shavkat Rakhmonov fits in the mix after submitting Stephen Thompson, the incredible battle between Irene Aldana and Karol Rosa, Ariane Lipski’s outstanding outing against Casey O’Neill, Sean Strickland and Dricus Du Plessis fighting in the crowd, Dana White announcing a slew of fights for UFC 299 — including the newly signed Michael Page vs. Kevin Holland — and much more.
