    Colby Covington is willing to carry on hisThe UFC’s decision to put in Kamaru Usman as the next one to face Tyron Woodley for the welterweight title did not sit well with supposed challenger Colby Covington. It had put him in so much disarray, that he even threatened to sever his ties with the UFC.

    Covington eventually changed his tune and is seemingly willing to remain with the company. It does, however, come with a caveat.

    “They can get me to fight whoever but they’re going to have to give me undisputed championship pay,” Covington told MMAWeekly on Monday. “I’m not going to go backwards. I was promised an undisputed title shot and undisputed pay, I’m not fighting for anything less than undisputed pay. I’m not going to fight for less…

    Ok, good luck with that. He just keeps vomiting stupid talk so he remains relevant in the fans eyes.......he’s not a draw

    I don't think I've ever given less of a shit about a fighter than I do with Colby. He's probably at the top of my "list of fighters who would make me a Conor McGregor fan". If they fight, I'll be draped in the green, white, and orange drinking Proper Twelve and singing ole ole ole ole.

    The ire Combo draws is hilarious. Tyron was out so Colby fought for the interim title. Won it, then Tyron came back. Tyron ducks him and the we all pretend like Colby shouldn't be fighting for the belt.

    I don't like the guy, but he has a right to ask for championship pay.

    Doesn't mean he'll get it, but he's entitled to it imo.

    He never lost his fake belt in a fight, though. His timeline with the UFC was off by 1 month or so and so they stripped him.

    I couldn't care less if he fights but he has earned championship-level pay.

    Colby flew to close to the sun.he is the most unlikable character in mma.he is a try hard.no one will miss him when he is gone.he has zero drawing power.even as a guy people want to see get beat up there is nothing interesting there.who is going to beat him up ? Woodley will probably smash him but no one cares about woodley either.usman might win a decision in a sloppy kickboxing match between wrestlers.there is nothing interesting in his future

    That is after all why they give that interim belt, so it can be unified. But now this division has two champs.

    He's fought and won, his fight against rds was interesting, bordering on entertaining. His schtick is lame but he should be fighting for the belt.
