Former interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington is well known for his trash-talking and even targeting his teammates with it.
He recently lashed out at his American Top Team (ATT) teammate Dustin Poirier. He called Poirier a “lightweight washout”, amongst other things, although he did later apologise for “being unprofessional”.
Covington has also had plenty to say about his other teammates in Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Jorge Masvidal. Jedrzejczyk previously said that she wants an official apology from Covington, before things can “go back to normal”. She also said that since Covington lost to Kamaru Usman at UFC 245, he has been “more humble”.
Now, it appears that Jedrzejczyk was wrong in that assessment after Covington made a recent appearance on the Submission Radio as he had plenty to say about her and Jorge Masvidal.
He started off by tearing into Masvidal, calling him “Journeyman Masvidal” and “Street Judas”:
“What’s my message to Jorge ‘Journeyman’ Masvidal AKA ‘Street Judas’, the guy who tried to stab me in the back because of money and business?” Covington began.
“You’ve got your ass whipping waiting, bud. You got your 10 seconds of fame, they’re up,” Covington added. “You hit lightning in a bottle. But let’s look at your record. You’ve got double digit losses. You’re a 50-50 average mediocre fighter. Stop acting like you’re so great. You ain’t great. You know what happened when we used to train for the last eight or nine years. There’s never been one second where you have ever beaten me.
“So if you wanna get embarrassed in front of the world, let’s do it. Jorge keeps talking about wanting to fight in the streets. Dude, if we fight in the streets, who’s gonna pay your medical bills? At least if we fight in the UFC Octagon, I’m gonna break your jaw, I’m gonna rearrange your face, and the UFC will cover your medical bills. So let’s leave our business in the Octagon. But you don’t wanna fight me in the Octagon, he knows better than that.”
Then, Covington turned his attention to Jedrzejczyk, calling her Jorge Masvidal’s “side piece” and saying that she is “washed up” following her loss to Weili Zhang at UFC 248:
“As far as Joanna Jedrzejczyk, his [Masvidal’s] little sidepiece, they got a little fling going on right now, I could give a f*** less about her,” Covington said. “She’s washed up now, nobody cares about her. She used to be the ‘Boogeywoman’, now she’s the ‘boobie woman’. Look at her face, she got her face rearranged, and I called it.
“In the beginning of the week, I put a video out before the fight [giving his prediction]. Joanna wants an apology, so here’s my apology – Joanna, I’m sorry. I’m sorry you had to get your face rearranged, and everybody’s gonna get rich. And that’s exactly what happened, I got rich. I made a Rolex off Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s b**** ass.” Covington concluded.
