UFC Women’s Strawweight Joanna Jedrzejczyk still appears to be upset with her American Top Team teammate, Colby Covington.
Colby Covington has had a public falling out with some teammates at American Top Team, namely Jorge Masvidal and Dustin Poirier. It didn’t stop there as Joanna Jedrzejczyk has said that her and Covington got into a big argument prior to her last fight against Michelle Waterson in October, 2019. The outcome of this argument was rather unpleasant, with the former women’s strawweight champion saying in interviews that she hopes Usman beats Covington’s ass.
It has now been months since the feud began, but Jedrzeczjyk has revealed that she still has not spoken to Covington, even though “Chaos” has been training back at the ATT gym. She says in order to set things right and for them to talk to one another again, she wants an apology.
“He has to bow down to the queen and say sorry,” Joanna Jedrzejczyk said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “Colby should be more respectful to his teammates and women in general. He should learn how to say ‘Hi, I’m sorry,’ ‘I apologize.’ He’s getting there.”
Joanna Jedrzejczyk is getting ready for her upcoming title fight against Women’s Strawweight champion, Weili Zhang in the co-main event of UFC 248. Jedrzejczyk is looking to reclaim the 115-pound title that she lost to Rose Namajunas back in November, 2017. If she does get her hand raised, she’s interested in a rematch against Rose Namajunas and believes that she can beat her the third time in her 1st title defense.
To earn the title shot against Zhang, the Polish women’s fighter beat Michelle Waterson at UFC Tampa. It was also her return to Strawweight after losing to Valentina Shevchenko in a fight for the vacant Women’s Flyweight belt back at UFC 231.
Meanwhile, Colby Covington is coming off a 5th-round TKO loss to Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman back at UFC 245. Since that loss, Covington has been calling for an immediate rematch and taking verbal shots referee Marc Goddard, who has even been receiving death threats from Covington fans for his ‘bad call’ to call a stop to the fight.
His return to the Octagon is still unknown at this time. He has expressed interest in fighting in the summer. Covington may first have to apologize to his teammate Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
