Colby Covington: ‘I Might Be In WWE Soon’
Colby Covington hasn’t been shy in expressing his feelings towards the UFC since it was announced that Kamaru Usman had been given a shot of Tyron Woodley’s welterweight title, ahead of him. In his latest attack, on the promotion, speaking to Submission Radio, Covington accused the UFC of never promoting him. As transcribed by MMA Mania.
“I mean, from day one the UFC has never put up a picture of me, never promoted me, never did anything. And they say they want their stars to build themselves and I did that exactly for them, and then they still treated me the way they did. It’s unbelievable. I’m a self-made man, I worked very hard to get to this point and I did it on my own, I never had any help from anyone.”
In the last six weeks, Covington has challenged the UFC to release him, threatened to take them to court and said he may never fight again. Now he’s saying we may see him fight in the WWE soon.
“I’m not losing any sleep over it. I can tell you what, I’m on vacation right now with all my ladies in Miami, man, we having a good night, we having a good time. We’re partying. I’m still making money. That’s the thing about the UFC, they can’t slow me down. I’m a personality now. I do whatever the fuck I want. If I’m gonna go to the WWE, you know, I might be in the WWE soon. So I could give a fuck less if I ever fight in the UFC.”
Covington is showing no sign of backing down in his feud with the UFC. Do you think we’ll see him fight again inside the Octagon?
