UFC welterweight Colby Covington has gotten the attention of fight fans worldwide for his often polarizing comments. Now the fighter has come forward to fully accept his role as the heel.
Speaking to MMA Weekly, Covington decided to offer his thoughts on the matter.
“I’m good for business. I’m the super villain of this division. I’m the super villain of the whole entire UFC. They’re starting to realize my worth. I’m the most notable fighter right now. Everybody wants to watch me. Whether they want to see me lose or win, it’s all the same f—ing thing.”
“They’re all going to be tuning in on June 9 on pay-per-view to watch me put an ass whooping on that little Franken-nerd RDA. I’m going to leave RDA motionless in the Octagon and there will be no question I’m the undisputed welterweight champion of the world.”
Colby Covington fights former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the co-main event of UFC 225. The live pay-per-view event will take place June 9 inside the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
