UFC 225 is less than a month away and the outspoken Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington has already started making bold promises.
Colby Covington is slated to face the ‘resurgent’ Rafael Dos Anjos for the interim welterweight title on June 9, 2018 at the United Center, Chicago, Illinois. Colby Covington might be fighting his first ever title fight, but that does not hinder his confidence.
Colby Covington ‘vows’ to be first ever UFC 3-division champion
Colby Covington was recently interviewed on BJ PENN RADIO, and he revealed his plans for future domination of 3-separate UFC divisions.
I’m looking for three belts. I’m looking to do something that’s never been done in this sport,” Covington said.
“I wanna go down to 155. I wanna go up to 185 and take the belt.”
‘Chaos’ revealed what he felt about the 185 division and he doesn’t seem impressed.
“Robert Whittaker hasn’t been that impressive,” he continued. “He got knocked out by choir boy Stephen Thompson. Karate, everybody knows that sh-t don’t work.
As for the 155 division – he promises to go down and snatch that title, if Khabib Nurmagomedov does not step up.
“As far as Khabib, the guy couldn’t finish a real estate on 20 hours notice. That’s sad, man. If that dweeb ever comes up to 170, I’ll rag doll him like the chump he is.”
“He’s not that talented, man. His wrestling doesn’t add up to good wrestlers,” Covington said of Nurmagomedov. “He has good pressure, but he’s going against guys, not all American Division I wrestlers who have been wrestling since they were five years old.”
“My hips are completely different, my scrambles and my takedowns,” he added. “I’m a bigger, better, strong, everything better than him. I’m way more handsome. We all know that. I don’t think that his skills are that good, and they don’t translate up to 170, but that’s why I’ll go to 155 if need be.”
Bold statements coming from the controversial Californian – but he is not the first or will be the last person to aim for the elusive mantle of being the first 3-division champion.
Colby Covington is now all set on his quest to grab the first of the three titles he is gunning for at UFC 225. UFC 225 goes to floors on June 10, 2018 (IST). The PPV is likely to be broadcast-ed on Sony ESPN and Sony ESPN HD.
