Colby Covington and UFC president, Dana White have not gotten along as of late. The two have gone back-and-forth for quite some time stemming from “Chaos” not getting a title shot.
Covington filmed White in a casino and said he will slap him with the belt when he wins it at UFC 245. Although he hasn’t seen the UFC boss in a few weeks, he believes White is afraid of him.
“No, I haven’t talked to him at all,” Covington told MMA Fighting recently. “The only time I talked to him was right before the press conference before I went on stage I was like ‘hey Dana, how you doing?’ and you could tell he was a little afraid of me. He was like ‘how’s it going, how you doing?’ and I was just like I feel good. That was basically it. He went on the stage and we did the press conference and that was it.
“That’s the only words we’ve spoken to each other. I don’t have anything nice to say about him and I know he has nothing nice to say about me ever.”
Covington ripped White and the UFC for slave labor negotiations and doesn’t like the lies he has said. Part of the what Covington is mad at is the fact when Usman-Covington didn’t happen at UFC 244, White blamed “Chaos” for the fight falling out. Which, Colby Covington says is no true.
“It’s sad that he has that type of platform where people believe everything he says and they’re so gullible,” Covington said of the UFC boss. “They just believe what they read, they don’t believe what they see. He wants to blame me but what about “Marty Fakenewsman?
“Why is it put on me that I didn’t want to fight when you’re getting me a petty, bullsh*t offer when I built this thing up into something bigger than life. It’s a spectacle,” Covington added. “I brought out the president [Donald Trump] and I wasn’t even fighting. It’s sad the narrative he tries to run and what’s even sadder are the fans and the people who actually believe anything that comes out of his mouth.”
