UFC welterweight champion Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley will defend his title against another top contender in his division Kamaru ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ Usman at UFC 235 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 2nd March.
Although, it was former interim champion Colby Covington who was supposed to fight for the title considering he has beaten Rafael Dos Anjos and Demain Maia before Usman did.
Covington has continued to blast UFC management and said that UFC is a ‘Circus’ and run by a bunch of ‘Bozos’. He appeared on BJPenn radio and said that UFC will never become a legitimate sport like NFL or NBA.
“They wanna be legitimate like a f***ing sport, like NFL, like NBA, you can’t be legitimate when a team wins a championship and you don’t let them go to the championship game. I don’t give a f**k. If you’re in the NBA, you win the Eastern Conference Championship and you’re LeBron and the Cavaliers, you’re going to the motherf***ing ‘ship. It doesn’t matter if David Stern doesn’t like you, you’re going to go to the championship. This isn’t a sport no more, it’s a joke, it’s a circus, it’s being run by a bunch of bozos. You got Uncle Fester (Dana White) up there, up top in his power position and it’s just a complete joke. If this is legitimate sport when you win the conference championship you go to the championship. It doesn’t matter if the promoter hates the f***ing coach or hates the manager.”
Do you guys agree with Colby Covington?
