UFC 225: Colby Covington will silence haters after he finishes ‘juiced up Frankenstein’ Rafael dos Anjos

Colby Covington will look to become the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim welterweight champion when he faces Rafael dos Anjos in the co-main event of this weekend’s (Sat., June 9, 2018) UFC 225 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Chicago, Illinois.

With a win, not only will he get his first-ever taste of UFC gold and a shot at division champion Tyron Woodley, but he’ll also silence all of the critics who aren’t buying what “Chaos” is selling.

And as he recently told, there’s not much to respect from a guy who gets melted by combatants lighter than him.

“All the doubters, all the haters, all the people that have an irrelevant opinion from their mom’s basement eating Cheetos, they’re going to be getting their Cheeto fingers dirty on their keyboards ’cause they’re going to be fucking having the snowflake Armageddon after I melt RDA. He’s a juiced-up little lightweight. He got melted by featherweights, so there’s not really much to respect about the guy. The guy, he’s not good at anything besides looking like a Frankenstein.”

I wonder if “Chaos” is referring to the infamous monster portrayed in the 1930’s horror film or Victor Frankenstein, the doctor who created it?

Nevertheless, Colby is confident he has what it takes to take out the former Lightweight champion of the world thanks to all the work he’s been putting in at American Top Team (ATT) with the likes of Dustin Poirier and Jorge Masvidal.

His not-so secret weapon, however, is his cardio which he says has only improved after putting in constant rounds in the bedroom. Or has he?
