We have already got used to the bad version of Conor McGregor. Trolling people with style is obviously something he enjoys at. It looks like Colby Covington thinks about moving to Middleweight, depending on the outcome of the fight between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero at UFC 225. (via bloodyelbow.com)
UFC 225 has two very important fights coming up. The first one is the co-main event between Colby Covington and Rafael dos Anjos, while the second is the main event between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.
It looks like now “The Soldier Of God” has caught Covington’s attention, and he starts threatening he will knock Robert Whittaker out if he is unable to. Of course, Romero needs to pass the weigh-in first. Romero and Covington are teammates, so this doesn’t come as a surprise.
“I think it’s a great match up,” Covington said of the UFC 225 main event between Whittaker and Romero, per BJPenn.com’s Tom Taylor. “I think Yoel has all the tools to put Whittaker away. He won those first two rounds in the first fight, so it’s going to be a very competitive fight and I don’t know what to expect. What will we see fro Whittaker coming back from injury? He may not be the same from his injuries. Yoel looked on fire, he just knocked out Rockhold. I’ll definitely have my eyes on that. I’m not going to go up and challenge Romero ’cause he’s my teammate and I like the guy, but if Whittaker wins I’ll definitely be looking to go up and knock him out just like Choir Boy (Stephen Thompson) did.”
Looks like Covington has very serious ambitions since he mentions winning three UFC belts. He wants to remove Khabib Nurmagomedov from the Lightweight throne. Colby Covington also wants Welterweight and Middleweight title! His final goal is to become the first three division champion in UFC history.
“I’m looking for three belts,” Covington said in an interview with BJPenn.com last month. “I’m looking to do something that’s never been done in this sport. I wanna go down to 155. I wanna go up to 185 Middleweight and take the belt. Whitaker hasn’t been that impressive. He got knocked out by choir boy Thompson. Karate, everybody knows that shit don’t work. As far as Khabib, the guy couldn’t finish a real estate on 20 hours notice. That’s sad, man. If that dweeb ever comes up to 170, I’ll rag doll him like the chump he is.”
You will be able to watch UFC 225 next Saturday, June 9, in the “Windy City”. What do you think, can Rafael dos Anjos become the man who will blow Colby Covington away?
