Colby Covington Says He Would've Easily Beaten Georges St-Pierre
Colby Covington doesn't think Georges St-Pierre would've caused him much trouble.
The former interim UFC welterweight champion had some choice words for the commonly referred to 170-pound greatest of all-time when appearing on the MMA Roasted Podcast.
“Georges St-Pierre – his striking was very basic, very kindergarten," explained Covington. "He didn’t have a lot of tricks. He just had that really good jab, but that’s pretty easy to counter if you’re moving your head and using footwork. I think Georges St-Pierre would have been a very extremely easy fight for me. He was ahead of his time. There were a lot of guys that time that were one-dimensional. They were either strikers or they were wrestlers, but they weren’t good at blending both.”
