Colby Covington has finally won the UFC welterweight title fight he's been looking for, but he's still unhappy with the way the road has progressed on UFC 244 on 14. December in Las Vegas. He recently told Submission Radio that if UFC president Dana White defeats Usman, he will not wrap the championship belt around his waist, as is customary after title bouts.
"I can tell you who does not wrap it around my waist, and that will not be Dana White," said Covington. "If he tries to wrap it around my waist, I'll take his belt off and him with it
White essentially said, "We'll see that," and let Covington know that this dislike is a one-way street.
"Good luck with that," White said, "He's a big-mouthed (expletive ) Idiot. "
In the relationship between White and Covington, things have gone awry for better days when White arranged a visit to the White House with Covington President Donald Trump, and the UFC pulled Covington's belt off when Covington said he could not fight on the date requested by the UFC. Attempts to assemble Usman-Covington for the UFC 243 failed before the fight for the UFC 244 was finally decided. 1
"There is a difference between me and Dana White, and that is truth and lies," said Covington. "Honestly, I do not care what he says, he has a lot to talk about all the time and I do not look at him anymore, I do not follow him on any social media platform, so I could say a little less what he's saying I show up, I kick ass, I take names and I collect the biggest checks in the sport, and that's it, there's no man at the moment who can stop me.
