Colby Covington pulled off a massive upset defeating heavy favourite Rafael Dos Anjos to grab the UFC interim welterweight title at UFC 225. Afterwards Covington got into a verbal altercation with former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping on the UFC 225 FS1 post-fight show. The altercation happened after Bisping who was the analyst picked Dos Anjos to win and not Covington.
On Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Covington recalled the exchange he had with Bisping.
“He’s an unprofessional little one-eyed twerp,” Covington said. “Every time the UFC brings me out, I’m always professional, I’m always on time. I make weight. There’s never any issues with Colby “Chaos” Covington. I always do the right things. What he did on Saturday night was a complete joke. That was my time and my moment and he was trying to steal my spotlight. He knew the light was so bright — and usually he can’t see out of that one eye. But my spotlight was so bright, he just couldn’t help but try and jump in.
“It’s crazy, he forgot what happened from American forefather Dan Henderson. You would think he got humbled from the last time he messed around with the red, white and blue. I’ll come across the pond and break that little, one-eyed nerd’s face.”
Covington said he did not address the incident with the UFC or Fox. He said that’s not something he would do.
“I’m not like any other fighter,” Covington said. “I don’t ever complain, man. I just take things the way they are. I’m not like TyQuil Woodley where he complains about the fans, like ‘Oh, they’re racist, because they don’t like me. Oh, they’re racist, they don’t want to watch me fight.’ No, you’re just boring, no one wants to watch the human form of NyQuil.”
“You want to take shots at me from the Fox Sports desk, there’s a reason that they’re moving over to ESPN,” Covington said. … “He ain’t going over there.”
