Colby Covington is calling out fighters left, right, and center. He is coming from a loss after his second face-off against Kamaru Usman. Usman is the current UFC welterweight Champion.
‘Chaos’ is firing shots at every fighter, he thinks, is a good opponent. This list obviously includes Conor McGregor. Conor McGregor is also coming from a loss, after his defeat at the hands of Dustin Poirier. McGregor suffered a nasty leg injury in that fight and is in recovery mode since.
Both the UFC fighters are also very famous for their trash talk and comments. Recently, during his interview on MMANews, he shared his opinion on McGregor’s career and life.
When asked about Conor’s recent Italian DJ assault and VMA incident, Colby replied, “He just looks to get headlines. He’s just looking to stay in the spotlight, you know, get some attention around him because he’s coming off some losses. People are questioning if he still has it, what he’s still capable of doing. He’s made a lot of money, man.”
“He had a great career, and he’s had some special moments in the UFC and in his career where he’s made so much money that he’s so filthy rich that he thinks he’s above the law now.”
Further stating, “He thinks that money can buy you whatever you want, but money cannot buy you out of punching an old dude off a stool, or hitting someone’s phone, or throwing a trolley through a bus, or his latest at the music awards, trying (to attack) Machine Gun Kelly. It’s sad to see, man.”
It’s a big downfall. I don’t think things are gonna turn out good for him in the long run. I think he’s the type of guy that we will see this come back to haunt him and he could be behind bars someday.”
