Several years ago, UFC fighters Joe Soto and Colby Covington were on the same junior college campus in Fort Dodge, Iowa, helping the Iowa Central Tritons find success on the national-level.
Now, Covington and Soto are on the same team, but this one is the UFC.
Covington posted a picture of the two back in college together in a study hall. They were both roommate with current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
So far, Covington is 2-0 inside the Octagon, while Soto’s debut was in a pay-per-view main event vs. bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw.
