Colby Covington was crowned the UFC Interim Welterweight Champion last weekend at UFC 225, and he has been making a lot of noise.
The injured champion Tyron Woodley, however has been unhappy with all the attention Covington has been getting.
Woodley feels Colby Covington is a racist and his trash talk is contrived.
“I’m gonna call him a racist because he’s racist to every nationality. He’s racist to whites, to blacks, to Brazilians..even if you’re premeditated, it’s all part of a script.
Woodley, however has a special bet for Colby.
“If he wants to play those types of games and that’s what he wants to do, I’m gonna challenge him. Fight me,” Woodley said.
“For every time he tries to touch my leg, for every time he tries to take me down, you owe me $10,000. Let’s make a bet. I ain’t gonna try to take you down one time for the whole fight.
“You’re going to make this division great again? People want to see hands thrown.
They don’t want to see wrestling and grappling,” he continued.
“We could take it to the mat and put on a singlet if that’s what you want to do. I challenge you $10,000 every time you touch my leg or grab me and try to take me down, you owe me $10,000.
We’ll see this fight end lickety-split. I might beat the knockout of Robbie.”
Whether Colby takes up the challenge is a question, but the title unification bout has started bubbling up now.
