The UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman retained his title by defeating Gilbert Burns at the main event of UFC 258.
In this fight, Usman showed adversity but his arch-rival Colby Covington only see one thing that is his weakness. While appearing in the latest interview with Submission Radio, Covington says,
“I think that looks like a guy really primed to get knocked out his next fight, and I want to be the one to deliver it, He looks a little chinny. Dilbert, he’s an oversized m*dget, man, he’s a 155-er getting knocked out by 155-ers.”
“The guy’s nothing, and that guy came out and dropped you and almost finished you in the first round? You got lucky to get out of that that he fell on his back and just sat there for five minutes and let you recover. Besides that, I didn’t see anything special.”
“I see a guy that’s gotten worse. He changed camps and he looks like a different fighter in the worst way. He looks like he’s declined in his progression. So, he looks like a guy I’m ready to expose to the world, and I want to show them Colby “Chaos” Covington 2.0.”
Covington has no interest in fighting with Leon Edwards
Colby Covington is ranked number 2 in the Welterweight rankings and now he wants nothing less than a rematch with Kamaru Usman.
Reportedly UFC is trying to book a fight between him and Leon Edwards in March but ‘Chaos’ isn’t interested in facing Burns. He added, “Leon hasn’t earned anything, boys. I’m in the Colby Covington Incorporated championship business, I’m not in the Leon Scott charity business.”
“This isn’t charity hour, man. I’m fighting at the top of the mountain, I’m fighting the best in the world… It’s not my fault this kid hasn’t fought in two years. It’s not my fault this kid – there’s people from England fighting all the time in the pandemic, they’re not scared to fight.”
“So, I’m not doing charity for this guy who hasn’t fought in two years. He’s irrelevant, he’s beat a bunch of bums, and I’m not doing charity. This isn’t charity hour, this is f*cking championship f*cking pay-per-view hour.”
