Covington Claims He Doesn’t Know Who Strickland Is
Last week during an interview with Sportskeeda, Covington was asked about his thoughts on fellow controversial character Sean Strickland, saying he didn’t know who he was.
“Who’s that? What’s her name?” Covington asked. “That’s interesting… I don’t know. I’ve literally never heard of him. I didn’t know. Is that a girl? ”
Strickland Takes Shots At ‘Chaos’
On Monday, Strickland responded to the two-time welterweight title challenger with a video response.
“Covington, you like to run your fu*king mouth,” Strickland said in an Instagram video. “You didn’t run your mouth when I’ve seen you, now you run your mouth now over the internet? Bro, we all saw what [Fabricio] Werdum did to you. Werdum walked up to you, fu*king punked you and you ran away, pulled out your phone, and recorded him like a fu*kin karen bro. You’re a fu*king embarrassment.
“I’ll be honest with you, you’re a good fighter. But as far as a man, you’re f*cking pathetic,” Strickland added.
On that same post, Strickland wrote,
“I thought Trumps co*k would of been too deep in your mouth for you to speak… Just because someone can fight doesn’t mean their not a coward.. @colbycovmma Look what happened when you got called out for being a troll you ran away and pulled out your phone. You’re a fu*king Karen.”
Something might be brewing between the two controversial fighters. Maybe we get a fight between the two? Strickland fought as a welterweight eight times before moving up to middleweight. And Covington has made it known he wouldn’t mind venturing up to middleweight, to fight Israel Adesanya. Perhaps a win over a top contender like Strickland would do the trick, in terms of a title shot.
Both fighters don’t have a fight scheduled, so why not?
