Colby Covington is welcoming a fight with his former best friend turned rival, Jorge Masvidal. There has been a lot of back and forth going on between these two but Covington warns UFC fans not to get their hopes up about this fight.
Covington is currently looking to get back on the winning track after dropping a competitive decision to Kamaru Usman in the main event of UFC 268. With the rivalry between Covington and Masvidal becoming very personal in the public eye, and with both fighters lacking a current dance partner, a matchup between the two could be imminent.
When asked whether he’s confident that a fight with Masvidal could be something the UFC looks at for early 2022, Covington doesn’t buy it — nor does he seem to care all that much.
In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, he was asked about when this fight is going to happen, or whether or not it is going to happen, Covington said, “To be honest, not really. It will only be because of one side, that’s his side.“This fight was supposed to happen for eight months last year so I’m not gonna get my hopes up. I could give a f*ck less about fighting this guy. He’s a bum. He’s a f*cking street Judas journeyman. He’s got 20 f*cking losses. I don’t give a f*ck, dude. The guy sucks. I’ve been beating him up for the last eight years and I used to leave him unconscious in our living room, for free.”
“I could give a sh*t less if it happens,” Colby Covington doesn’t care if Jorge Masvidal won’t fight him
Masvidal was slated to face Leon Edwards in a grudge match at December’s UFC 269 event before the “BMF” champ was forced to withdraw due to an undisclosed injury, although Covington says he has the inside scoop.
“Dude, that guy is such a little b*tch, man,” Covington said. “Every time he came around, he would tuck his tail between his legs, put his head down, never even made eye contact with me because he knows better. He knows that he’s my son. He’s such a fragile little b*tch. He was leaving the gym the other day, crying because of his ribs. You’re a grown-ass man and you’re crying? That’s sad, man. Go get a f*cking tissue. Go get a Kleenex sponsorship.”
He added, “What can I do? I’m just gonna keep making the best fights that the people want, that the UFC wants, and if it happens, it happens. But I’m not gonna get my hopes up. I could give a sh*t less if it happens. If [Masvidal] doesn’t want to fight me, retires, or just leaves the sport forever because he’s a little brittle b*tch, big deal.”
