Colby Covington Threatens To File A Lawsuit Against UFC Over Denied Title Shot: “We’ll Go To Court, I’ll Make It A Living Hell!”
“Chaos” was planned to meet Tyron Woodley in a title unification bout at UFC 228, but he had to withdraw due to nasal surgery. Covington was stripped of the title and replaced by Darren Till.
But UFC tricked Colby one more time! According to Ariel Helwani’s tweet, Colby agreed to meet Tyron Woodley at UFC 235. Yet, the promotion favored Kamaru Usman and gave him a chance to face “T-Wood” in a title match, claiming “Usman’s win versus “RDA” was dominant and he was willing to fight anytime”.
Colby Covington was furious and trashed lying Dana White, but now he is ready to go one step further and sue UFC in the court of law! Covington threatens he’ll make life “a living hell” for the most popular MMA promotion in the world. (h/t MMAJunkie)
“We may have to go to court, and this may be a lawsuit, because let’s be honest: If (Tom) Brady wins the AFC championship … and just all of a sudden Roger Goodell says, ‘You’re not going to the Super Bowl because we don’t like you’ – no, that’s not how it works,” Covington told MMA Junkie Radio. “I’ll sit on the shelf all day. We’ll go to court. I’ll make it a living hell for the UFC. I don’t give a (expletive).”
Colby Covington (14-1) is on a hot streak with six wins in a row. “Chaos” is undefeated since UFC 194 and the fight against Warlley Alves, who forced him to tap out after guillotine choke in the first round.
