Colby Covington’s jaw is ‘fine’ according to this new video

Former UFC welterweight title contender, Colby Covington, is pretty busy for a guy with a broken jaw, or “non-displaced midline mandible fracture” for all you anatomy-obsessed medical geeks out there.

In fact, the doctors who shoot and publish videos for TMZ Sports tell us his jaw is “fine” based on long-distance footage of his recent pick-up basketball game.

Here’s Colby Covington proving he’s okay after having his face broken at UFC 245 ... playing a full basketball game just a little more than three weeks after breaking his jaw!

The only thing I was able to determine from that footage is that nobody passes the ball.

Covington, 31, is just a few weeks removed from his technical knockout loss to Kamaru Usman in the UFC 245 main event and is not expected back inside the Octagon until later this year. Despite his absence, “Chaos” still holds the No. 2 spot in the official rankings.
