For the uninitiated, Woodley and Covington had shared some time back in American Top Team where they were training partners.

“He ran off the mat basically crying, storming off, and I have people who are willing to come forth and testify to the training camp. Tell me one person that’s going to testify that Colby whooped my ass in practice. Tell me one person that’s going to lie under oath and let God above hear them say he beat me in anything. He ain’t ever beat me at thumb wrestling. Not only has he never taken me down, he’s never won a millisecond of a round. I can’t even imagine when he’s won an exchange of combinations. He ran from me the entire training camp. He went home early, saying that his toe was hurting. And when it was time to really wrestle, he had my striking partner … in there with a broken wrist wrestling me, while Colby was sitting in the weight room acting like he didn’t know what was going on,” Woodley said during his recent appearance on the MMA Hour.

Now that Covington is the interim champion thanks to his win against Rafael Dos Anjos, a showdown between Covington and Woodley is bound to happen at some point in the future. All the exchanges that these two are having at the moment seems like a build-up to this eventual matchup.
