Colby Covington is focused on a winner take all struggle along with his former pal and coaching associate Jorge Masvidal.
Covington and Masvidal spent a few years as stablemates at American High Staff in Florida, however because the pair reached the highest of the UFC welterweight division, they relationship started to fray. Right now, they’re two of the fiercest rivals in MMA.
Covington has made no secret of the truth that he’s focused on settling his beef with Masvidal within the cage. Up to now, nevertheless, the matchup has did not materialize.
Talking on the lates episode of BJPENN.com Radio, Covington recommended some fascinating stakes in an effort to coax Masvidal into accepting a struggle with him.
“I feel it’s unhappy as a result of UFC gave Jorge a terrific value,” Covington mentioned. “They gave him a terrific value. He simply didn’t need to take the ass whooping. There ain’t no amount of cash that Road Judas goes to get supplied to get within the cage with me as a result of he is aware of we ain’t speaking about pay checks. We speaking about him going to the morgue.
“Actually, if me and Jorge fought, we might do all of it or nothing—put all our pay examine to the winner. I don’t want nothing if I lose, however I do know I’m not going to lose, so I’m probably not too nervous. Let’s see how assured he’s then. Let’s see how assured he’s then as a BMF. He’s a scared motherfucker. He ain’t a BMF. He’s an SMF. His 15 seconds of fame are over. He’s a broke motherfucker, and shortly sufficient, he’s going to be coming, crawling out of his little gap, begging to struggle me.”
As Covington suggests, Masvidal is presently embroiled in a public contract dispute with the UFC. Masvidal was anticipated to get the subsequent crack at UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman, however negotiations or the struggle finally stalled, and the chance went to Gilbert Burns, who will struggle Usman at UFC 251 on July 11.
Covington feels Masvidal’s contract gripes are unjustified, and that his rival is already overpaid as is.
“I can’t relate something with Jorge,” Covington mentioned. “I feel that he’s been overpaid as it’s. I feel he obtained a faux participation Bernie Sanders trophy as it’s. He obtained paid to struggle Nate Diaz, the soy boy. It’s best to by no means be paid to struggle Nate Diaz. That man’s washed up, 20 years previous his prime, double digit losses, 50-50 fighter. So that you can receives a commission pretty much as good as you bought paid to struggle Nate Diaz, you need to be sending letters to Dana White each week, like, ‘thanks a lot, Dana, for giving me that free cash.’
“Now take your ass whooping to Kamaru Usman or me, and your fame is up,” Covington added. “Nobody cares about you. All people is aware of you hit lightning in a bottle. We all know you ain’t able to capitalize. You’re not the perfect fighter on this planet, as a result of when you had been, you’d step as much as the plate and try to get the actual world championship.”
