Colby Covington isn’t too big on trying to make mixed martial arts (MMA) friends. And it’s a good thing, too, as he seems to have a knack for getting under the skin of just about everyone on the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster.
The latest person to proclaim his disdain toward the sharp-tongued Welterweight is top-ranked Heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis. Appearing on a recent edition of “The MMA Hour,” “Black Beast” called out “Chaos” for allegedly running his mouth about him.
“While we’re on the mic, fuck Colby, whatever his name is. Fuck you, motherfucker. Just so you hear that. Go ahead and put that out. I heard he was talking shit. He’s one of those boys that wears Polo shirts and as soon as you touch him, he’s going to call the cops on you. One of them preppy motherfuckers. I don’t know where it was on, I just heard he was talking shit.”
The root of the issue for Lewis is unclear, but the 265-pound big man appears to have caught wind of some not-so nice words that left the lips of Covington. Plus, he apparently doesn’t appreciate the incident in Australia with fellow big man Fabricio Werdum in which Covington called the cops after “Vai Cavalo” decked him with a boomerang (seriously) following a face-to-face confrontation.
Snitches get stitches ... and all that.
Being on the hit list of “The Black Beast,” who — aside from being a massive, hard-hitting human — is no bueno. That’s because, among other scary things, he is undefeated (5-0) in prison fights, knocking out one guy in the big house with a two-piece for changing the television channel, according to the big man.
Covington’s best bet might be to grow eyes on the back of his head at this point.
