Outspoken Colby Covington Spitting All Kind Of Dirt After Title Shot Sunb
UFC welterweight No. 1 contender, Colby Covington recently run afoul of promotion head honcho Dana White for booking Kamaru Usman versus Tyron Woodley at UFC 235, a fight will go down on March 2, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Motormouth Covington was originally supposed to face Woodley in a title unification bout at UFC 228 last September, but when ‘Chaos’ opted out due to a nasal surgery, the UFC stripped him of his interim title and gave his title shot to Brit Darren Till. Now, Covington has once again been cheated and has to sit on sidelines for some time. According to Ariel Helwani’s Tweet, ‘Chaos’ was agreed to fight Woodley at upcoming UFC 235 event but promotion chooses to go with Usman in the wake of his superb win against RDA last November and his willingness to fight anytime score him a title shot.
According to Covington, he had held the interim title, and he was promised to get a crack at Woodley’s title. In his recent interview with MMAJunkie, ‘Chaos’ express his disdain for Dana White not only for title snub but also for his corporate decisions.
“I don’t really have a relationship with Dana White, and I don’t give a (expletive) about him,” Covington said. “He’s cashing out. He made all the money off the fans, all the fans that built this sport, and they sold for $4 billion. And the reason the sport even is what it is is because of Lorenzo. So Dana hasn’t even done anything. He (was) just Lorenzo’s little check boy. He holds his coat for him and stuff. Dana’s already cashed out. He got all that money, and he let it get to his head. He’s a piece of (expletive) person, and he has no morals or values.”
Well, this whole thing escalated quickly, to remind you last year Covington and head honcho Dana White traveled to the White House together to meet with USA President Donald Trump. At that time he was still an interim champ.
Not only that Covington offered a threat to Dana White.
“Dana White’s out in the media saying ‘Colby’s not taking the fights, we don’t allow that in the UFC. He can go fight somewhere else,’” Covington said. “So what I’m saying is, OK, Dana. Let’s see if you’re a man of your balls. Let’s see if you’re a man of your word. Let’s see if you can stick to what you say. You said you don’t allow that in the UFC? All right. I’m testing you, mother(expletive). Let’s see how big your balls are. Release me, b—h.”
Covington may not have to sit idle for long, as recently Woodley said he’s planning on a quick turnaround after he defends his title against Usman at UFC 235, sometime in June. Until then ‘Chaos’ needs to calm himself down and stay away from the wrath of Dana White.
