Covington wasted no time in calling out former American top team teammate, current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. Covington has been campaigning for a shot at Woodley since quiet a long time but winning the interim belt makes his title shot inevitable. Covington at UFC 225 post-fight press conference continued with the bad blood he has with Woodley.

“The guy’s a fake,” Covington said. “He’s out there spitting bars, you should go listen to that. If you guys think you hate me now, go listen to him try to do his rap album right now. That’s a joke. Besides that, he’s doing his little gossip and stuff in Hollywood, he’s doing these little B-list movie roles that go straight to DVD.

“He’s doing anything but fight. That’s why I’m here. I’m making this welterweight division great again.”

Covington is now targeting the November 3 show at the prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York for his unification bout.

“I’ve trained hundreds of hundreds of rounds of sparring at American Top Team,” Covington said. “I know how he fights, he’s real predictable. He has his right hand, he’s got no gas tank, he backs up and fights. People are scared of his power, I’m not scared of his power. I’ll go right into his power. I’ll get him in the clinch, I’ll do whatever I want with him. I’ll finish him inside three rounds, mark my words.”
