  • Colby Covington criticized Ian Garry’s UFC 303 win over Michael Page
  • “Chaos” is vouching for a massive fight between him and Charles Oliveira

Colby Covington has thrown another jab at Ian Garry following UFC 303 and is eyeing a showdown with Charles Oliveira.

Colby slights Ian

Speaking to Submission Radio, “Chaos” unsurprisingly slighted “The Future” over his controversial decision win over Michael Page at UFC 303. For Covington, Garry did not live up to his hype and his performance was far from high level.

“Fighting cans from the Indian casino leagues. Big, big deal. Anybody can be 15-0 fighting 15 bums,” Covington said of Garry’s win. “Even Dana White said what he thought of the performance. He thought it was a draw. He didn’t think there should have been a winner. I feel bad for the fans. The fans got robbed of a pay-per-view opener. That’s supposed to be the opener of the pay-per-view so that was pathetic. That guy’s fighting the No. 14 guy in the world and he barely scrapes by. I think he lost the fight. It just shows how much of a bum he is.”

“I thought he was a star,” he continued. “I thought Ian Garry was a big name. What happened? They had their co-main events fall through like six or seven times, there was a guy that was there not even on the card. Why couldn’t he get bumped up to co-main event? I guess that shows us what UFC thinks of the guy. The guy’s an absolute nobody and he’s a bum and he has no reason to talk about anything.”

Charles should grab the opportunity

About a month ago, Oliveira expressed his desire to move up to welterweight and see how he would fare against 170-pounders. The Brazilian mentioned Covington and flirted with the idea of a potential match between him and “Chaos.”

Addressing the issue, Covington enthusiastically welcomed the idea and even claimed that “Do Bronx” has been big for the lightweight division all this time but Oliveira chose to stay there to gain advantage. “Chaos” also pointed out that Oliveira should not think twice as he is already giving him the chance to secure the biggest fight at this point of his career.

“It’s still a potential fight,” Covington said of Oliveira. “The UFC hasn’t shown much interest with it but if you look at the landscape and what he said in his recent interview that he wants to go up a weight to 170. He’s taller than me, weighs more than me. The guy’s just a weight bully cutting to 155 cause he wants to be stronger in there because he doesn’t have a mental edge, he’s mentally weak. So, he needs to have a physical edge, he needs to be the bigger guy in the fight to feel confident going into a fight.”

“He’s another one of those guys with baseless words…He’s your chance Charles Olivieira, I’m the biggest fight you can get. Former world champion, the king of Brazil, the king of Miami, Donald Trump’s favorite fighter. What’s gonna be bigger for your legacy Charles than fighting me?,” he continued.

“You want the biggest fight, the ball is in your court, Charles. Let’s see if you’re a man of your word. You talked a big game and said you want to come up to 170. There’s nothing left for you at 155. All these other guys they’re trying to match you up with are complete nobodies. The biggest and best fight for Charles Oliveira’s legacy would be Colby Covington. So, let’s see if he’s about that life, but I don’t think he is. I think he’s gonna run away because he knows what would happen,” he added.

Both Covington and Oliveira are coming off huge losses. That said, a fight between them at 170 would make sense. As for Garry, it wouldn’t be a shock if he hits back at “Chaos” sooner rather than later.
