ufc fight night 56

Colby Covington started off the UFC Fight Night 56 card from Brazil with a convincing submission victory over Wagner Silva.

The remarkably thing about the win was that Covington suffered a serious foot injury in the opening round. He locked up a rear-naked choke in the third, well ahead on the scorecards.

Covington (7-0) is a perfect 2-0 with the UFC. He is a former two-time All-American wrestler from Oregon State and was a junior college teammate of Jon Jones and Joe Soto at Iowa Central.
