    “So all I did was ask for an extra two months instead of six weeks because they backed themselves into a corner in a matchmaking hole, and now they’re trying to hold this against me. But I find it funny because Dana White’s tone, he changes tone real quick. He heard from the UFC doctors, ‘Colby’s not cleared, he can’t fight in September in Dallas,’ and then he changed his tone. After the Woodley-Till fight, he was like, ‘Okay, Colby’s 100 percent fighting Woodley next, that’s the next fight to make,’ then all of a sudden everything’s changed — now they’re trying to hold it against me, ‘Oh, Colby’s not taking fights. That doesn’t fly in the UFC. Blah, blah, blah.’


    “But let’s be honest: Dana, you don’t got the balls to release me. If you’re saying all of this stuff to the media, then release me. But you ain’t got the balls. You know I’m too valuable.”

    A visibly irate Covington challenged White and UFC officials to release him from his contract numerous times throughout Monday’s interview.

    Covington indicated that his inability to fight at UFC 228 is being painted as justification for his title snub, even though he claims both White and UFC doctors were acutely aware of the necessity of the surgery and timetable for his recovery.


    “I was in no shape to fight in September in Dallas,” Covington said. “It wasn’t gonna happen, no chance. So if you want to punish me for not fighting in Dallas and [not] turning around on six weeks’ notice when I had surgery and was on every antibiotic and [drug] cocktail underneath the sun, then that’s cool. That’s your business decision. If you want to keep f*cking up your brand and moving shows from one city to another because a guy failed his third steroid test and he’s hitting pregnant ladies [in a] hit-and-run, so be it. I’m the ultimate professional. Show up on time, make weight, do everything they ask of me.

    “Fly all over the country, fly all around the world, do whatever they want whenever they want. So, no big deal. If they don’t want a hard-working guy like me, then so be it. Where’s your balls? Show me your balls. If you’re so man[ly], you’re saying in all these videos that you don’t need me and I’m not worth anything and this and that, then let me go.”

    When asked if he was being serious about his requests for the UFC to release him from his contract if a title unification bout isn’t his next fight, Covington indicated that he was.


    “Absolutely,” Covington said. “But they’re not going to do it. They realize my value now. They realize how valuable I am. They know that I sell. They know that every single fighter in the welterweight division wants to fight me. They know that I’m the draw right now at welterweight. I made this division relevant. The only reason people care about Woodley and care about Usman is because they say my name. I’m the relevant one in the division. No one cares about anybody else. They just want to see me fight anybody, it doesn’t matter who it is. So they’re screwing the fans over, they’re screwing the people, and the people who are make their business run. So it’s a big f*ck you to the fans.”

    Colby Covington calls title snub ‘a big f*ck you to the fans,’ says Dana White doesn’t have ‘the balls’ to release him

    The guy is a douchebag, but you're apparently missing the point. Danus is doing to him what he did to aldo essentially. If danus wants to book another fight, so be it. To lie to the public about reasons is completely different. It blows my mind danus hasn't been sued for this a hundred times over, but realistically, these guys don't get paid much and simply can't match the legal bills, delays, appeals, let alone bribes, so they only have their voice.
    Again, fuck colby, but not in this specific case.

    Ummm I.........don't think you realize that you actually agree with me.......
    There are 2 topics I'm actually mocking here: Dana's Interim title bullshit and how it backfired, and Colvington's cringeworthy big mouth.

    Ummm, I'm seeing your point for what it was, which is not what I stated.

    I've sort of liked Colby ever since he upped his promo game.

    If he turns this into a full Stone Cold Steve Austin-style, anti-authority tweener turn, I'm fully on board.

    As I always say, the Enemy of my Eggemy is my friend.

    He’s all talk. He doesn’t want to be realessed.
    “Absolutely,” Covington said. “But they’re not going to do it. They realize my value now. They realize how valuable I am. They know that I sell.”

    Says he wants to be released and then immediately starts trying to explain what a valuable employee he is.

    Poor guy went full heel trying to get a title shot. Acted like a complete asshole for an entire year, kissed Dana’s ass, and is now faced with the fact he’s disposable to Daddy Dana like everyone else.
    It seems like a lot of fighters let their ego fool them into thinking they have a special relationship with Dana.

    There's a big fight or two awaiting him outside of the UFC, so hopefully he's wrong about Dana's testicular proclivity.

    I think Colby would be better off in Bellator anyway. That way we'd hear about him less.

    Why does he want to see Dana’s balls so bad? Seems a little odd. I’ve been plenty mad at people and never asked to see their balls.

    Dana should show him his balls by letting Askren ragdoll him and then cutting him.

    He should dye his hair blonde IMO.... that’s the easiest way to get into Danus’ Special friendship zone....or BBC.....

    Pretty much if you can he hired at blacked.com you are set.
