Former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington has had quite a few verbal backs and forth with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Covington has previously said that he lived with Jones for two years in college and both were a standout wrestler at Iowa Central Community College. However, Jon Jones recently said that he didn’t live with Covington for two years and that he was a habitual liar.
Speaking at the UFC 247 press conference in Las Vegas, Jon Jones said that Colby Covington really is a bad person.

“Colby’s a habitual liar at the end of the day. He really is. He told the fans that we lived together for two years. We lived together for one semester. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and a lot of people don’t consider me to be a good person, but Colby’s a really bad person. He really is. He really, really is. There’s no coincidence that Tyron Woodley got to know him and hates him. [Jorge] Masvidal got to know him and hates him. I got to live with him and really don’t like him. If any of you guys got to know him, he really is a rotten person. I think the MMA community has gotten to see it over the year,” Jones said.
“Oh Colby man… I don’t want to get into, I don’t want to go back to living with him and the person he became once we weren’t friends. He’s just a very dark kid. Now he has money, and I feel sorry for the people around him honestly.” Jones concluded. (H/T – BJPenn.com)
