Grudge matches in the UFC can sometimes appear a little manufactured. But there is no denying the ill will between Colby Covington and former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley ahead of their headline clash this weekend.

The brash Covington, a 32-year-old who calls himself "Chaos", is heavily favoured to prevail. Woodley, 38, lost consecutive fights prior to this match-up and is widely considered past his prime. That will be determined on Sunday (Australian time).

On a solid card, the co-main event is between welterweights Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Niko Price. The highly touted and undefeated Khamzat Chimaev will also meet Gerald Meerschaert in a middleweight bout.

Who will win UFC Fight Night: Covington vs Woodley?

There has been a feisty build-up to this showdown, with the fighters holding separate press conferences to keep them apart. Both media events then ended up taking a political slant, to add a little extra spice to the dislike between the pair.

Woodley is an outspoken supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and repeated the phrase repeatedly when he met the press. He takes on Covington, a devoted follower of US president Donald Trump who wore a Keep America Great hat to his conference.

Both fighters have a wrestling background and have also improved their striking over the years. Woodley (19-5 record) looked a shell of himself in defeats to Kamaru Usman and then Gilbert Burns, although he has since stated personal issues impacted his performances.

Covington (15-2) had a 7-fight winning streak stopped by Usman in December last year, his last appearance in the Octagon. If "The Chosen One" Woodley can rediscover the fire that made him one of the most feared men in the UFC, he clearly has the ability to win. But we're leaning towards "Chaos" backing up his pre-fight bravado in a victory by decision.
