The former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk is not a huge fan of UFC star Colby Covington. The latter has come up with some bold claims for the reason behind it. ‘Chaos’ recently claimed that it is because he rejected her advances years ago. Previously, Jorge Masvidal made some drug claims about Colby Covington.
Colby Covington explains his claims
Both the stars never hold back from speaking their minds It has been noted that they shared the same gym of American Top Team (ATT). But, eventually, Jędrzejczyk decided to train out of ATT, but Covington parted ways with the gym when his feud with Masvidal went beyond control. While Covington was still at ATT, he and Jędrzejczyk butted heads, and the two have exchanged some shots since his exit as well.
While in a recent interview with ESPN, Jorge Masvidal questioned why Covington would be talking trash about a woman at all, especially since there is no chance of the two ever fighting and generating money inside the Octagon. In his own sit-down interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Covington addressed the matter and explained the reason why he has been highly critical of Jędrzejczyk. Here is what he had to say:
“No journalist out there can go look at the timeline of events of who started running their mouth first,” Covington began. “I never said nothing to Joanna. I never said nothing to Dustin [Poirier]. They started getting jealous of my success and that I was rising up.
“And they’re such egomaniacs, they didn’t like that someone was next to them in the gym that was on that same level in the UFC. So they started trashing me in the media. ‘Oh, [BLEEP] Colby and his antics! Oh, he’s a piece of [BLEEP] person! Dirtbag, blah, blah!’ OK, yeah, you wanna say things about me? Don’t think I’m not gonna say the truth right back to you.
“So of course, I’m gonna come back at “The Boobie Woman” Joanna. You’re talking [BLEEP] about me before I’m getting ready for a title fight. I’ve never said one thing about you. I don’t care about you. You used to send me DMs after training, wanting to flirt with me and go out on dates. Just because I didn’t give you attention, Joanna, don’t get mad at me and talk [BLEEP].”
Previously as well, Covington made some bold claims about his dating life mixing with his professional life. Last year, he said that he had sexual relations with UFC strawweight Polyana Viana, a claim the Brazilian described as “revolting.” The grudge match between Covington and Masvidal is scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, this weekend.
