Officials Confirm – Covington’s Jaw Was Broken in Usman Fight

Colby Covington would have us believe fake news is responsible for the belief that his jaw was broken in the Usman fight. And to Colby’s credit the X ray photo that was circling around the web in fact wasn’t his.

One sherdog user managed to find the exact copy without his name on it on a popular medical website.

But the rumor started in the first place when Covington shared

And now there’s an official confirmation:

Colby Covington did suffer a jaw fracture from his first bout against champion Kamaru Usman back at UFC 245 in 2019.
