UFC fighter Michael Chiesa (17-4, 10-4 UFC) picked up his 3rd victory at Welterweight Saturday night over Rafael dos Anjos (29-13, 18-11 UFC) at UFC Fight Night in Raleigh. After getting the win by unanimous decision, Chiesa wasted little time calling out his next challenger and even picked a date.
During the post-fight interview, Chiesa said he wants Colby Covington in July
Michael Chiesa: “I’d like to cut this interview short and call out my next opponent, Colby Covington, I’ll see you in July.”
Chiesa is no fan of Convington and has criticized his antics in the past. American Top Team Owner and Colby’s Manager Dan Lambert said that Colby should be ready to fight again in April or May.
July is International Fight Week in Las Vegas for the UFC. A July UFC event has yet to be announced.
