  • Colby Covington is not buying Ian Garry’s callout and accused “The Future” of ducking
  • “Chaos” is still hoping to get another crack at Leon Edwards

Colby Covington is uncertain about fighting Ian Garry and insists he and Leon Edwards are far from over.

Colby accused Ian of ducking

Speaking to Twins Pod, “Chaos” blatantly fired shots at “The Future” amidst their ongoing feud. According to Covington, Garry pulling out of his fight with Vicente Luque at UFC 296 was a clear indication that “The Future” doesn’t want anything to do with him.

“There’s this kid that’s been calling me out. This kid, Ian Garry, he’s a nobody,” Covington began. “I gave him some stipulations and said, ‘Hey man, if you wanna fight me, you have to show me you’re serious about business.’ Because when I do business, I’m serious about it. I show up to every fight. I’ve never pulled out of one fight. I’ve been injured. I’ve been sick. But I always show up and do my business because I love the UFC as the greatest organization on world. So he has to show me he’s serious.”

“He was supposed to be on my last event in the press conference. He pulls out the day of the press conference because he knew I was gonna be on stage, and we’re gonna have some beef. So that shows me that he’s not serious,” he added.

Colby is not done with Leon

Covington failed in his third title fight at UFC 296 when he suffered a decision loss at the hands of Edwards. Nevertheless, “Chaos” refused to believe that he is no longer a title contender-caliber fighter and stated that he would still be aiming for a rematch with “Rocky.”

“I got unfinished business with my last fight, Leon Edwards, the guy that has the title right now,” Covington said. “I broke my foot in the first five seconds of that fight. I threw a kick, it broke in 3 different places. So that wasn’t me that night. I’m gonna probably have to fight someone else to get back to him. So whoever.”

Colby says he’s coming back soon

Covington has yet to be booked for a fight but he is certain he will be back this summer as soon as the UFC identified the perfect matchup for him.

“I’m gonna fight this summer for sure, someone’s gonna get fought. They’re trying to figure out who’s the biggest name and the best business that we can do for the UFC. International Fight Week is like their big event in the summer, the UFC does a big festival all week and it’s capped off by this big pay-per-view on Saturday,” Covington asserted.

“I think that’s when they’re planning for me, International Fight Week. Just trying to figure out who’s gonna be the guy,” he added.

Covington is currently ranked No. 4 in the official welterweight rankings. His plan is to compete for the title once again and he has never failed to win every after a title fight loss. However, it is yet to be known if that would still be the case in his return.
