It would seem like former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington won’t be abiding by the rule, as he returned to those trash talking ways, first taking aim at BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal.
“What’s my message to Jorge ‘Journeyman’ Jorge Masvidal a.k.a. ‘Street Judas,’ the guy who tried to stab me in the back for money and business?” Covington said to MMA Fighting. “You got your ass-whooping waiting, buddy. You got your 10 seconds of fame. They’re up. You hit lightning in a bottle. But let’s look at your record, buddy. You got double digit losses on your record. You’re a 50/50 average mediocre fighter. Stop acting like you’re so great, you ain’t great. You know what happened when we used to train for the last eight, nine years. There’s never been one second where you have ever beat me. So, if you want to get embarrassed in front of the world, let’s do it, because Jorge keeps talking about wanting to fight in the streets. It’s like, dude, if we fight in the streets who’s going to pay your medical bills, Jorge? At least if we fight in the UFC octagon I’m gonna break your jaw, I’m gonna rearrange your face, and the UFC will cover your medical bills. So, let’s leave our business in the octagon. But he doesn’t want to fight me in the octagon, he knows better than that.”
Covington and Masvidal have been at each other for quite awhile now, but neither have taken the chance to settle things in the Octagon.
Another target of Covington is former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who Covington refers to as the “boobie woman.”
“And as far as Joanna Jedrzejczyk, you know, his little sidepiece, that they got a little fling going on right now, I could give a f*ck less about her,” Covington said. “She’s washed-up, nobody cares about her. She used to be ‘the boogiewoman,’ now she’s ‘the boobie woman.’ Look at her face. She got her face rearranged, and I called it. In the beginning of the week, the week before her fight, I put a video saying, hey guys, Joanna wants an apology from me, so here I am for my apology. Joanna, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you had to get your face rearranged and everybody’s going to get rich at mybookie.ag. And that’s exactly what happened, I got rich. I made a Rolex off of Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s bitch ass.”
There is one fighter that Covington did make peace with and that is Dustin Poirier, whom Covington apologized to after making some disparaging comments prior to UFC 242.
