It’s been more than a week but since Colby Covington broke the ribs of Tryon Woodley, but he isn’t leaving any chance to be in the limelight. Covington has done a lot of trash talk about his former brother and gym partner Jorge Gamebred Masvidal. Dana White also said that it is very possible that they will be facing each other next in the Octagon.
In his recent interview, Covington said “This needs to be settled, We’re the top fighters in the world, his hype is coming to an end, and I want to be the one to put it to an end. I’m sick of him talking to the media and not having to account for his words.
He also added, Dana White came up to me after my fight immediately and said, ‘Hey, we want to do you versus Street Judas Masvidal.’ I accepted right on that night, in that minute. He knows I’m on board, the UFC knows I’m on board, now it’s just about getting Street Judas Masvidal onboard. That guy is scared. He’s scared of my shadow. If my shadow was around him, he’d be running.
Covington’s words became meaner
The Chaos Covington didn’t even stop here he said, “The thing is, Jorge is gonna have to show up to fight me one day,” Covington said. “He’s got to pay his ex-wife’s lawyer fees, he’s got to pay alimony payments, he’s got some other payments he’s got to pay, so he’s gonna be broke soon, he’s gonna come running to daddy, and he knows the only money fight he’s getting is me. I’m his money fight. That other fight they’re trying to do with that Soy Boy, they’re not trying to do that fight. That’s just a fight he’s begging for because he won it one-sided and now he’s looking for an easy fight”.
“This is the fight that’s being presented to him, it’s the only fight that should be made, and it’s the biggest fight, probably, that they can make in the UFC right now. It’s a pay-per-view main event, it’s a five-rounder, it’s an exciting matchup with fireworks on the line”
Referring to Masvidal’s fight with Kamaru Usman he added, “I’m not gonna be looking to dance on his feet like Marty Fakenewsman did, I’m gonna be looking to dance on his face, break his face, and he’s leaving that octagon in a body bag. Mark my words.”
On the other hand, Masvidal still appeals to fight Nate Diaz, if he takes up the challenge from Colby Covington it would be interesting to see who rips whom apart.
