There is no doubt left about the fact that Colby Covington has one of the loudest mouths in the UFC. However his trash talking didn’t sit too well with retired middleweight champion and now an FS1 analyst Michael Bisping, in their post fight conversation after UFC 225, where Colby Covington won the interim welterweight gold.
Covington (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC), who plans to unify the title against reigning champ Tyron Woodley in October or November, called Bisping’s behavior during an FS1-televised interview following Saturday’s UFC 225 event “a mockery to the sport” and “a joke,” and he also threatened to “come across that pond and smack him silly and take that other eye out.” In his latest reaction to the heated argument between the two, the champ talking to MMA Junkie Radio said, “That’s probably why that fake FOX News is going under and it’s getting transferred to ESPN. That little one-eyed twerp should have realized what happen the last time he messed with the red, white and blue: The American forefather Dan Henderson left him unconscious.”
While Bisping’s behaviour was met with rebuke by UFC commentator Jon Anik who called it disgraceful, Covington’s word too were not fully correct. The last time Dan Henderson and Bisping met, it was Bisping who came up with a unanimous decision victory.
