Michael Chiesa continues to make noise in the welterweight division and following his latest win, a fired-up ‘Maverick’ called out Colby Covington.

An amped-up Chiesa calls out ‘Chaos’

Chiesa took on Neil Magny, in the headliner of UFC Fight Island 8 Wednesday, and recorded a decision win. The victory was Chiesa’s fourth straight, since he moved up from lightweight to welterweight in 2018.

Well, as you can see by watching the video below, afterward, Chiesa (18-4) left no doubts about who he wants to fight next

But will Chiesa – Covington happen?

It would be interesting to see how Covington would approach Chiesa in a fight, given the latter’s top-tier, grappling game. 

But, as it stands right now, it’s hard to imagine the fight materializing next.

The UFC is hoping to book a bout between Covington and his ex-buddy, turned rival, Jorge Masvidal (although, Masvidal doesn’t seem to be driving for that bout much, not publicly at least).

All that said, given that Chiesa isn’t ranked in the top five yet, one would think Covington’s camp will look at other opponents if the Masvidal fight doesn’t materialize.
