The highly controversial Colby Covington has now received some strong words from a former for, Warlley Alves. Alves snapped Covington’s undefeated MMA record and is still the only man to ever beat him. Alves criticised ‘Chaos’ for his comments on Brazilians and also claimed that they will fight again.
Alves recently did an interview with MMA Fighting. Here’s what he had to say:
If he fought here, I would ask fans to respect him, but … it’s hard to say, he disrespected everybody, talked a bunch of crap, offended our country. No one can do that.
I love his country, the United States. I have a huge respect for his country. I think Donald Trump is the greatest president the United States has ever had, and it’s actually hope for my own country. … I’m a fan. And (Covington) comes to my country and treats us like garbage.
The only thing I would ask Brazilians fans if he fought here would be to not throw anything at him, don’t be hostile to him, because Rafael dos Anjos will do that. I’m sure he will get beat up by Rafael dos Anjos.
No matter what, I want to fight him again. We will fight again, he can run, he can hide in the top five, but I will get there and fight him. No matter where he is, I’m coming after him and he knows that. He’s scared. I know he’s scared.
He’s a p*ssy. He’s scared, he talks a lot on social media, but let’s see if can back that up in the Octagon. I’ve beaten him once and I will fight and beat him again if the UFC wants. It’s easy money for me.
It’s impossible for me to root for (Covington), especially against Rafael dos Anjos. My first MMA training was alongside Rafael dos Anjos. When he won the UFC belt and brought it to Brazil, we met in Rio. We’re not always together, but I have a huge respect for him, and a belt will never trump a friendship.
