After their intense battle at UFC 296, Leon Edwards and Colby Covington’s rivalry escalated beyond the octagon. Edwards, the reigning welterweight champion, had just secured a unanimous decision victory over Covington, but the drama didn’t end there.

In the lead-up to the fight, Covington, known for his trash talk, crossed a line by insulting Edwards’ late father during the pre-fight press conference. Edwards, visibly affected, vowed to make Covington pay.

Immediately after the press conference, Edwards went backstage, fueled by rage. His goal? To confront Covington and deliver a resounding message. “Yeah, I looked for him backstage,” Leon Edwards revealed. “But they moved him. I don’t know where he went, but he wasn’t backstage at all.”

Leon Edwards’ Just Could’nt Wait to Slap Colby Covington

Leon Edwards didn’t mince words. He wanted to slap Covington for his disrespectful comments. “I feel like he’s not a man,” Edwards declared. “The way he talks and what he says, he should be able to back it up inside and outside the cage. For me, he’s a weasel.”

Covington, ever the provocateur, blamed his loss on external factors, including judges’ bias against his political views. Edwards dismissed this, emphasizing that Covington habitually shifts blame after defeats. But for Leon Edwards Colby Covington was a challenge he triumphed and now he has to look forward and prepare for the challenge ahead of him.
