Colby Covington dares Dustin Poirier to move up to welterweight and settle their feud

Following Dustin Poirier’s bid for a lightweight title coming up short at UFC 269, there are many options but no real answers to what his next move will be in his career. Whether it’s retirement, a comeback trail in the lightweight division, or a change in weight classes, Poirier has plenty of options, and one of his former teammates, Colby Covington, is calling for a move up in weight and a grudge match.

Former American Top Team teammate and former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington has called for a fight against Poirier, daring him to move up to the welterweight division. Making an appearance on Submission RadioCovington issued his dare to Poirier and said that the two could settle their beef inside the UFC Octagon.

“Dustin Sorryer, Louisana Swamptrash, he’s said a lot of things too in the media. Now he’s saying he might come up to 170, he wants to come fight in a real man’s weight class. So this is another personal fight. These are different type of fights. This isn’t about the rankings, this is about personal grudges and being held accountable for your actions.”

Referencing previous comments made by Poirier that the two would fight on-site when they saw each other, Colby Covington told “The Diamond” to stop cutting weight and made threw some personal insults his way as well.

“He said ‘It’s on-site when I see you’ in the media, he’s talking this big game like he’s a street fighter, he’s some bad ass fighter, so stop cutting all that weight Dustin, come up to the real man’s weight class, welterweight and let’s do this man, you talk too much shit. You can bring your little Jezabelle of a wife, bring that little prop you use as a kid, bring the whole Louisana swamp trash family, and let’s do this man, stop cutting all that weight, stop being a bully.”

Colby Covington has never been afraid to stir the pot and now that he’s dropped two in a row to reigning champion Kamaru Usman, he is looking at personal grudge fights between either Poirier or former roommate and best friend, Jorge Masvidal.
