The former UFC interim Welterweight champion, Colby Covington has been on a collision course for a while with his best friend turned rival, Jorge Masvidal. But it appears now Covington isn’t interested in this match anymore.

Masvidal faced two consecutive losses against Kamaru Usman, since his last win against Nate Diaz for the BMF title. So, with Gamebred’s losing streak, Chaos thinks he lost his aura and as a result, he isn’t interested in facing him anymore.

In his latest interview with MMA Junkie, Colby Covington says, “It doesn’t make sense, I’m not gonna have people downplay my victory if I beat him. I’ve already owned his soul for the last 10 years when we trained together at American Top Team.”

“You can go look on the internet, I used to hold him down in our kitchen and just pat on his face, ‘Get up Masvidal, get up, do something,’ and he couldn’t do anything. So he knows I’m his daddy, I’m his rightful owner, and there’s a reason he ducked the fight for so long. He doesn’t want to fight me.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

Covington added, “He knows I own the keys to his soul, so I don’t know. If the UFC really wants to do it, I’m the people’s champ, and I’m America’s champ for a reason. I’ll do what the people want, what the UFC want.”

“I want to put the biggest and best fights in the organization, but I don’t feel like he’s the biggest and best fighters in the organization. The guy has almost 20 losses on his record, he’s nothing more than a journeyman at this point, so his 10 seconds of fame are up, and there’s nothing for me to gain anymore.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

The UFC president Dana White, recently announced that Colby Covington is the number one contender to face Kamaru Usman next. After this ‘Chaos’ doesn’t intend to look backward.

Colby Covington says, “I’ve already beat him up and knocked him out multiple times in the gym. I have nothing to prove against him, I want to go out there, beat ‘Marty Fakenewsman,’ solidify myself as the greatest welterweight in the world, and go on to solidify myself as the greatest welterweight of all time. I have unfinished business.” {H/T MMA Junkie}
