Colby Covington Height

"I'm always training, whether I'm training my mind, or I'm training my body. I'm always doing something."

~ Colby Covington

Colby Convington could often be pleasant... out of the octagon, but make no mistake he is a nasty piece of business inside. His title fight against Kamaru Usman didn’t go his way but it could have gone either way if it had gone to decision. Still, he showed the world that he isn’t just a talker and that he backs his talk with his American-bred fists.

About Colby Covington's Real Height

Colby is listed at a respectful 5’11” in UFC, but as we all know that the company often adds an inch or so to their fighters' height, but thankfully UFC is no WWE who adds several... After looking at Mr. Covington from several angles and comparing him to a number of other fighters like Tyron Woodley, Robbie Lawler, Kamaru Usman, etc, we have come to the conclusion that Mr. Covington is closer to 5'10" tall than 5'11" -- in short he around half an inch shorter than his arch-nemesis - Kamaru Usman.

The real height of Colby Covington is
