Tension is rising between new UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington and title-holder Tyron Woodley even before they set foot on the octagon. The two mixed martial artists are now having their battle by mouth.
Covington gained his end over a unanimous decision on his UFC 225 bout against Rafael dos Anjos where he called Woodley, a former teammate at American Top Team (ATT), a coward in the post-fight interview.
Woodley’s Phone Interview
He’s officially got on T-Wood’s nerves who has switched on his lust of bedevilling Covington in return.
Here is what the triggered reigning victor has to say:
“He’s a disgrace.”
“He’s the sh*t on the bottom of my foot when I walk through the park, that’s what he is.”
“Now he’s got my attention and he’s got me in a position where I’m kind of actually scared of what I can actually do with his mental state.”
Everyone is now expecting a Woodley-Covington square off in a title unification bout late in the year. Let’s all see if the official welterweight champ can fulfil his promise of ’embarassing’ his former sparring partner in the Octagon and putting an end to his career.
Get your popcorns as well, the trash-talking battle is just about to spice up.
Covington to Woodley:
“I will be sending you to sleep for good motherfucker.”
