Interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington is set to be stripped of his title at the beginning of UFC 228’s main event. For the headliner, reigning champion Tyron Woodley will be facing off against undefeated division contender Darren till.
With that in mind, Colby Covington now has a few fights in mind. Speaking to MMA Weekly, Covington revealed that he would not mind fighting the winner between Woodley and Till.
“There’s only a couple of fights that would make sense for me. There’s obviously defending my undisputed belt against the No. 1 contender winner — Darrell “Doughboy” Till or Tyquil Woodley — but there’s some other fights that present themselves.”
However, Colby Covington would like to take on former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre as well.
“GSP, that little syrup sucker, he can come get this. He thinks he’s the greatest welterweight of all time. I have something else to say about that. I’ll destroy him. I’ll send him back to Canada crying. He can eat his little poutine there. I’m going to get my poon-tang here in America like a real American champion.”
Colby Covington then decided to roast former WEC and Strikeforce champion turned UFC superstar Nick Diaz.
“Nick Diaz is another guy. If he stops beating women, he can come get it, too. He’s probably going broke soon cause he’s been in jail and he’s spending all his money on drugs. He can come get this ass whooping, too.”
