Colby Covington Thinks He’ll Rematch Kamaru Usman At UFC 252
Colby Covington has again hit out at his former best friend, Jorge Masvidal.
Last week, after UFC president Dana White stated that Masvidal will challenge Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title at UFC 252, ‘Chaos’ said that ‘Gamebred’ wouldn’t risk losing all his hype, fighting Usman.
Speaking to MMA Fighting, Covington echoed his previous comments, stating that Masvidal will get out of fighting Usman by asking for too much money.
“To be honest, I’m calling it right now — let all the people know. Let Dana and all the people know in this interview that ‘Street Judas’ also known as ‘Journeyman’ Jorge Masvidal is not going to fight Marty Fakenewsman. He’s going to wait and price himself out.
“He’s going to try and wait to fight ‘Con Man’ [Conor] McGregor, the little Irish leprechaun, who couldn’t knock an old dude off a barstool. The guy’s got no f***ing power. He couldn’t fight himself out of a wet paper bag. But we’re not talking about ‘Con Man’ McGregor. We’re talking about ‘Street Judas’. He’s going to think he’s worth more, his value is more and he’s going to wait for Conor or even a Nate Diaz rematch, the soy boy, because everybody knows those Stockton slaps don’t do s***. He’s going to price himself out.”
And it wasn’t only Jorge who Colby accused of ducking out of the fight, Covington also stated that he thinks Usman will make up that he has an injury, to get out of fighting Masvidal.
“What ‘Marty Fakenewsman’ is going to do, he’s going to fake injuries again. He’s going to make up injuries. He does not want to fight anybody. He doesn’t want to fight Colby Chaos’ Covington again because he knows he got his ass beat on December 14th and he got lucky and he got saved by a ref. He got life rafts from a ref. We’ll have to see what happens. I don’t think ‘Journeyman’ Jorge Masvidal is stepping up to the plate.”
Having declared that Masvidal and Usman won’t fight at UFC 252, Covington predicted that he will get his rematch with the champion then instead.
“That’s the perfect time. By July, International Fight Week (UFC 252), I’m coming back for the people. I’m coming back for America. I’m America’s champ. At International Fight Week, the champion is going to defend his title. It’s going to be a rematch of what went down December 14th, this time with a real and fair playing field. It’s going to be a completely different fight.
“The rematch is going to be completely different because it will be a fair playing field and I will get my hand raised for the people.”
Who do you think Kamaru Usman’s next title defence will be against, Jorge Masvidal or Colby Covington?
