Polyana Viana has responded to Colby Covington's claims regarding their relationship.
In early March, perennial contender Covington posted a photo with fellow UFC fighter Viana. While many speculated about their possible relationship. Covington quickly claimed that he was involved with the UFC strawweight, even claiming that he was too busy with her to accept a short notice fight against Leon Edwards.
Viana quickly came out and denied all of Covington's claims about their supposed sexual relationship. Now, Viana has taken to Twitter to reiterate that fact.
Nunca dei margem para qualquer tipo de comentário ou julgamento sobre minha vida pessoal, mas não cabe a mim julgar a atitude da pessoa. Tenho pena de quem age de forma tão baixa para tentar se promover.— Polyana Viana (@Polyana_VianaDF) March 20, 2021
Translated from Portuguese via Google Translate, Viana says the following:
"I have never given room for any kind of comment or judgment about my personal life, but it is not for me to judge the person's attitude. I feel sorry for those who act so low to try to promote themselves. It is revolting."
Additionally, she has responded to comments regarding Covington on Instagram. She noted that the two were just friends and that she already has a boyfriend. Her newest comment on Twitter seems to confirm the ending of their friendship. Viana's last fight was at UFC 258 where she earned a performance bonus for her first-round armbar against Mallory Martin.
