This was announced at a press conference after the UFC on ESPN 37 tournament by UFC President Dana White.
“I don’t know what exactly is happening right now, but we had guys with legal problems and they were fighting. I don’t think that this will prevent them from fighting,” the head of the organization said, answering a corresponding question from a journalist.
A few days earlier, White announced that Colby Covington is one of the candidates for a fight with Khamzat Chimaev, who plans to return to the octagon in August this year.
Recall that at the moment Colby Covington is the victim in the case of an attack committed against him, in which his former friend and sparring partner Jorge Masvidal is accused.
