Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 5: Covington vs. Lawler is set following Friday’s weigh-in. While two fighters missed weight, everyone eventually came to agreement and the full 12-bout fight card will stake place in Newark, N.J.
Following the weigh-in, all of the fighters squared off with their opponents for the final time before their bouts on Saturday.
Of particular note, Colby Covington, who has fed Lawler a steady diet of trash talk leading up to the fight, continued jawwing at him during their face-off. True to form, Lawler didn’t utter a word back at Covington, instead keeping his stoic demeanor as fight time quickly approaches.
