Interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington is all set to fight current UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman at UFC 245 which is all set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
Ahead of his fight, Covington has issued a unique threat to UFC president Dana White. He said that he doesn’t want White wrapping the belt around his waist at UFC 245 if he emerges victorious.
“I can tell you who’s not wrapping it around my waist, and that will not be Dana White,” Covington said to Submission Radio. “If he tries to wrap it around my waist, I’m gonna take the belt from him and slap him in the face with it.”
“This is an opportunity for me to just really shove this up the UFC’s ass and say, f—k you guys, I don’t give a f—k about you guys, now you have to come to me,” Covington said. “So, you’re gonna be calling me after Dec. 14 begging to get me back in there. And if you don’t come right next time, you know, I don’t need to fight again, man. I already have enough money in my bank account where I don’t have to ever fight or do anything ever again. I’m making multi six-figure sponsors from Bang Energy, from a CBD company, from a betting website. So, I’m making more money in sponsors than Marty Fakenewsman’s gonna make in this fight.”
