While you cowl MMA, it’s important to cowl all the products that come together with the game, and all of the bads as nicely. A type of issues (I gained’t say which) is reporting on what Colby Covington has to say. The outlandish welterweight contender has spent the final three years making an attempt to anger nearly everybody he opens his mouth about, and his most up-to-date interview is just about on model.

This time although, Colby’s attempting to select a struggle with somebody a lot, a lot bigger than him.

Earlier within the yr, Covington made some noise about finally going to WWE sooner or later and attempting out his persona in professional wrestling. As common he mentioned some brash issues about it, and he managed to get the eye of WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.

The 6’5, 265-pound wrestler spoke to ESPN a few months in the past with reference to Covington, and principally challenged him to a struggle (transcribed by MMA Combating):

“If he needs this unsanctioned struggle outdoors of WWE, I’m prepared to struggle him in a bar or one thing. There’s a cause there’s totally different weight lessons [in MMA]. I’m about 100 kilos heavier than the man, I’m a foot taller than the man. I’m prepared to have an precise struggle with him if he needs an unsanctioned struggle. It’ll put extra eyes on the product, completely pleased with me.

“I’ll smash his head in, I’ll shut him up. I’ll break his jaw like [Kamaru] Usman did, after which extra individuals watch WWE. So, Colby, I’ll struggle you. No title shot although, that’s reserved for the WWE superstars.”

Covington, who’s 5’11 and competes at 170 kilos, took the time to answer that this week on the What The Heck podcast:

“Final time I used to be on right here, we had been speaking about Drew McIntyre. You signed a person’s demise certificates. Now you’re gonna must get Drew McIntyre’s blood in your arms. As a result of now he’s speaking all loopy on the market like he needs to struggle in an unsanctioned struggle. I’m not afraid of a struggle, I like to struggle.”

He continued on, saying that he can compete in MMA whereas dabbling in professional wrestling:

The factor with the WWE is everyone thinks that I’m simply gonna depart the UFC and go to the WWE. No, I can do each on the identical time. I’m nonetheless younger, I’m 32 years younger, I’m not even in my prime but. I’m nonetheless getting higher each single day, stronger each day, higher cardio, and everyone is aware of how good my cardio is. They name me ‘The Cardio King’ for a cause.

“So I wish to do each on the identical time. I wish to go whoop Drew McIntyre’s ass in an unsanctioned struggle, perhaps over in Saudi Arabia, perhaps in his residence nation of Scotland. And I wish to go whoop ‘Marty Fakenewsman’’s ass and ‘Road Judas’ Masvidal’s ass, and nothing’s altering. It’s gonna occur.”

The probabilities of this ever happening are fairly slim, clearly. If it did although, my cash can be on McIntyre.
