Covington Says Masvidal Is Too Scared To Accept UFC Offer To Fight
Colby Covington has revealed that the UFC is working towards booking a fight between himself and Jorge Masvidal, in what would be one of the biggest fights the promotion could make in 2021.
“I had heard that they had told me that he’s scared of the style matchup, the stylistic fight,” Covington stated. “He wants another one, he’s looking for something else. So they’re gonna try and get him on board, they’re gonna try and offer him a lot of money because that’s the only way he’s showing up, is if he gets a bunch of money to take this ass beating and this losing pay cheque.
“They just gotta get him on board, they just gotta do some more convincing. I don’t know what his contract is and how much he’s gonna make, but he’s probably asking for more, and that’s the hold-up. So, we’ll see when things come to fruition. Hopefully, by the next month or two, the wheels will start turning a little more, we’ll get a bit more clarification of when the fights gonna be, where the fight’s gonna be.”
Covington’s All In
While there has been no official word from the promotion that this fight is in the works, UFC president Dana White has previously stated that this is the fight to make in the welterweight division. Covington was quick to point out that if the fight doesn’t get made, it’ll be down to Masvidal being a ‘coward’.
“The UFC has approached me with this fight, and I’m on board,” Covington said. “They’re just trying to get him on board right now, and there’ll only be one reason that this fight doesn’t ever happen, it will because he’s a coward. That BMF s*** goes out the window. You’re a broke mediocre fighter, you’re not badass mother f***er. Cause badass mother f***ers fight anytime, anywhere, anyone. But you ain’t one of those. That’s who I am. And if it doesn’t happen, there’ll just be more excuses from his end. He’ll lose a tone of street cred, I know that. He won’t be as hard as he thinks he is in the streets. He’s nothing more than a pussy, he’s nothing more than a bitch. And the UFC wants this fight for the first quarter of next year. If it doesn’t happen, there’s only one reason why. That’s ‘cos of the coward, Street Judas Masvidal.”
