Former interim welterweight champion Colby Covington is making enemies left and right, he even started beef with his longtime friend Jorge Masvidal.
His beef with Masvidal and most recently Dustin Poirier has been a problem as both the fighters train at the American Top Team along with Covington and with him saying that a brawl might break out at the ATT, things are tensed in the gym.
“That’s a very real possibility,” Colby Covington said last week on BJPENN.com Radio. “It’s a very real possibility. I don’t know. I think Dan Lambert is a little bit nervous about it. We’ve been having talks the last couple of days and he’s very nervous about it. He doesn’t know what’s going to happen.”
“[He’s] 100% ATT,” Lambert told BJPenn.
Although it looks like Colby won’t be switching gyms, he has definitely changed his management group. According to Michael Chiesa, he has signed with Ballengee Group.

Even though Covington has switched management group, according to Lambert, he is still partially Colby’s manager.
“He’s working with them [Ballengee] as well as me on some things,” Lambert wrote to BJPenn.
Ballengee group represents the likes of Tony Ferguson, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Curtis Blaydes etc.
