Joanna Jedrzejczyk Expresses Displeasure At Colby Covington’s Actions
Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Colby Covington train out of the same gym – The American Top Team. However, most of Covington’s teammates aren’t happy with the number one contender for the welterweight title. Colby has angered the likes of Dustin Poirier and long-time friend Jorge Masvidal. And it now looks like “Joanna Champion” has taken an issue with the former interim welterweight champion.
Colby will face Kamaru Usman in the main event of UFC 245 for the welterweight title. However, it is now looking as if Colby will not have many supporters from his camp for the fight. All is not well within ATT, as many of Colby’s teammates have spoken out against him.
During a recent interview with The Score, Joanna Jedrzejczyk expressed her displeasure at how things have unfolded.
“You shouldn’t shit in your gym. What (Covington) has done, it’s like pretty shady, you know? I really do not respect that…. I really don’t like it because we are all teammates. It was really not nice because even if I really like Khabib … I need to and I want to stick to my people and support them. I saw how hard Dustin Poirier was training before the fight. The gym is very big…. We all are different, from different cultures, different countries, we all behave differently, we all have (a) different sense of humor. But the thing is you should support your teammates, it doesn’t matter if you like them or not. We represent one team, we represent the same colors, so we should support each other as much as we can.”
Joanna Jedrzejczyk will face Michelle Waterson in the main event at UFC Tampa, in a pivotal strawweight clash.
