Colby Covington delivered a savage response to Matt Brown’s claim that ‘Chaos’ isn’t built for a long-term career inside the Octagon.

In December, ‘Chaos’ will make his long-awaited return as he steps into the main event spotlight at UFC 296 for his third crack at becoming a world champion. Covington is set to challenge reigning welterweight titleholder Leon Edwards in a bout that fans have been chomping at the bit to see ever since UFC CEO Dana White announced the matchup way back in March. 

Many fight fans believe the bout is essentially do-or-die for Covington, suggesting that if he doesn’t leave with the belt wrapped around his waist on December 16, he never will. UFC veteran Matt Brown took that theory one step further, adding that if Covington once again comes up short when it matters the most, ‘Chaos’ will likely walk away from the sport altogether. 

“I have a hard time believing he’s going to continue fighting if he loses this fight, to be honest,” Brown said of Covington on a recent episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer. “He just doesn’t come across as that kind of guy to me. He hasn’t fought for two years. He’s not built like me, where I love fighting, and if I lost 10 in a row, I’d still want to fight. He’s the kind of guy where I think he’s in there to get paid, get his money, stir up as much sh*t as he can, and get out.”

Colby Covington Slams Matt Brown in

Getting wind of Brown’s comments, Colby Covington delivered a scathing response during his appearance on Submission Radio with Kacper Rosolowski and Denis Shkuratov. 

“Matt Brown or whatever his name is, you know, he’d be in a nicer house and have more money in the bank if he didn’t spend it all on drugs,” Covington said. “Matt, don’t hate me, hate the fact that you live in trailer trash and it’s the man in the mirror. I made good decisions in my life.

“I’m at this point in my career because I had discipline, self-control. Something you know nothing about because you’re a drug addict. So, don’t be mad that I have all this money, I’ve done all these great things. You live in a trailer, yeah. You married trailer trash, yeah. I’m married to the game, motherf*cker.”

Matt Brown has been very candid regarding his struggles with addiction and drug abuse in the past. Unfortunately, that has made him an easy target for fighters who live off the low-hanging fruit on the trash-talk tree. 

“He must have got hit in the head too hard from my friend Miguel Baeza,” Covington continued. “He knocked him senseless. I knew that Matt was dumb, but I didn’t know he was that dumb. But, it just so happens my buddy Miguel Baeza knocked him in another dimension. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He’s saying this and that. Dude, he needs to go get some more money from his next fight so he can spend it on drugs again.”
