Dana White sat down with TSN during the media rounds for UFC 261 and let it slip that Colby Covington will get the shot at the winner of Usman-Masvidal.

Here’s White’s conversation with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter:

Covington (16-2) is the #1 ranked welterweight according to the UFC’s ranking system. His last fight was in September at UFC Fight Night 178 where he headlined against Tyrone Woodley. Covington defeated Woodley via TKO in the contest. A win by Usman would set up a rematch of UFC 245 where Usman defeated Covington by TKO (punches) in the fifth round.
