Colby Covington recently claimed to have exposed Dustin Poirier to be a ‘bad guy’. Number 1 ranked welterweight Covington has been impatiently waiting for his title shot against Kamaru Usman. However, ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ doesn’t seem to be interested in rematching with ‘The Chaos’ since he had broken his jaw and finished him the last time around.
A couple of weeks ago, Colby Covington had been showing a video of UFC lightweight Dustin Poirier, claiming that Poirier was not the ‘nice guy’ everyone thought. He had also explained that the video was from Poirier’s fight camp before his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2019.
‘Chaos’ would explain to several interviewers of his like Helen Yee, Mike Bohn that Poirier could be seen beating up an amateur fighter with no experience, while also unleashing his rage on him.
Mike Bohn is brutally honest here?
Covington recently put the video out for the world to see. And it didn’t look all that bad. It seemed like the amateur fighter Covington referred to was defenceless (helmetless) by choice and Poirier didn’t go all that mad after knocking him down.
Covington tweeted, “The guy wearing full nerf gear head to toe to protect his face and his feelings is Poirier. The guy with no headgear, wrestling credentials or brain cells left is “khabib.” @DustinPoirier Good guy? Bad guy? You be the judge #AndNew#UFC264.”
Mike Bohn who had interviewed Covington when the welterweight showed him the video was brutally honest. He claimed that Covington had blown it up to massive proportions. Bohn also clarified that the video was not from Poirier’s fight camp for the Khabib fight.
Bohn tweeted, “Glad people can now see for themselves the way Covington described the Dustin Poirier sparring video in our interview was misleading. Nothing out of the norm. Also worth noting that was not an amateur fighter he was sparring with, nor was it in the Khabib camp. Carry on.”
It looks like Mike Bohn has lost his future opportunities to interview Covington. However, he did bring out the truth. The video was nowhere close to how much Covington had hyped it to be. What are your thoughts on this?
