Interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington and reigning title holder Tyron Woodley are now set on a collision course destined for the inside of an octagon. Speaking in a recent interview, Covington has now come forward with his demands for the match up.
Speaking in a recent interview, as reported by Bloody Elbow, Colby Covington believes he “holds the cards” concerning his potential match up against Woodley.
“The thing is, now I hold the cards. So I’m not gonna rush back to fight when he wants to fight me. We’re gonna fight when I wanna fight, and I wanna fight in November. That’s a good time frame for me.”
“I just fought fucking a month ago, I’m not gonna be fighting September, October. I’ll be fighting in November. So, that’s what I’m looking at right now. I hold the cards. Tyron had his chance. We could have fought three or four times. They offered him three or four different cards in the past, and he cried, ‘Oh no! Ugh! I want a money fight! I want [Conor] McGregor. I’ll fight [Nate] Diaz.’ But then they offer him me and [he says] ‘Oh, I gotta get a shoulder surgery.’ So he’s came and gone. He’s on TMZ gossiping about the Kardashians. He’s in Hollywood with the liberal scum. He’s trying to do these B-list movie roles that go straight to DVD.”
“So, he could do all that little acting career, but he’s gonna fight me when I’m ready to fight, and that’s November. He doesn’t have the cards anymore, I hold the cards.”
“I’m pushing for Madison Square Garden. So, make sure you tell Woodley, Madison Square Garden. I would tell him on social media, but he lives in his little safe space. He blocked me on all the social medias, on Instagram and Twitter, so I can’t get at him and tell him Madison Square Garden. He’s acting hard out there saying, ‘Oh, I’m gonna do this to Colby. I’m gonna do that.’ But that’s all talk, man. Why you blocking me?”
“I ain’t never in my life, I ain’t never in my career, I ain’t never in my existence as an adult human being wanted to f**k somebody up so bad, beat somebody so bad, embarrass somebody so bad, end his career so bad, take his life so bad — and I don’t even say that figuratively. Literally, I’m gonna try to hurt him so f**king bad they’re never gonna want to let me fight in the UFC again, that’s a fact.”
