UFC 272 takeaways: Who's next for Covington? Is it time for the UFC to cut Greg Hardy?

Colby Covington utilized a clear strategy to wear down Jorge Masvidal over five rounds and earned a unanimous decision victory at UFC 272. Covington's wrestling was simply too much for Masvidal, resulting in most of the fight being contested on the mat. Masvidal did have his moments, but they were few and far between and even though they didn't shake or hug after the fight, there was a clear ending to the friends-turned-rivals storyline.

Covington once again emerges as a clear contender in the welterweight division, even after losing to champion Kamaru Usman twice already.
