Colby Covington simply does not hold back… especially when it comes to Jon Jones.
Covington used to be roommates with the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion back in college. Since those days, ‘Chaos’ has kicked into full effect, coming full heel. And no, he wouldn’t remain friends with Jones.
No love was lost between the Covington and Jones this week. Covington would take shots at Jones after he announced that he and his longtime fiancé Jessie Moses were no longer together. Let’s just say the former UFC title challenger’s comments were nothing but nasty.
“Tremendous news,” Covington said of the announcement. “Guess you finally knocked some sense into her @johnnybones.”

Covington would of course be referencing Jones’ latest arrest back in September. ‘Bones’ would be arrested on misdemeanor domestic violence charges, where he allegedly pulled his fiancé’s hair. He has attracted much controversy since this.
The charges would be dismissed at a later date, but that won’t stop Covington charging at him over social media. Only time will tell if Jones will respond to Covington’s latest trash talk.
