Despite being pictured with Abdelaziz, it appears that the beef Covington has with him still exists. They famously had an altercation at Las Vegas buffet when Abdelaziz hunted Covington down.
“Yeah, right – I did not call truce with Ali Abdelaziz,” Covington told MMA Junkie. “That picture was specifically for Dana (White). He wanted a picture with the UFC guys, and I did it for Dana. I’m thankful for Dana for keeping sports in the world right now and moving the show on with so much going on. He’s giving the opportunity for fighters to keep putting food on the plates for themselves, and (Abdelaziz) is a dirt bag still. He’s an informant, that little rat. So I will never be friends with him.”
The beef with Abdelaziz and Covington has been going on for quite some time, as the two have been saying a lot of negative things about each other for many years now.
