Colby Covington brings up Dustin Poirier and his family
Colby Covington recently claimed that he is the father of Parker (Dustin Poirier’s daughter) and husband of Jolie Poirier. While speaking on Combat Sports he talked about Dustin’s daughter and wife.
“I’m really Parker’s Daddy you know, it’s not Dustin who is Parker’s Daddy, I am Parker’s Daddy, and I am Jolie’s husband.”
Covington also had an interview with Fanatics View when he called Poirier’s win against McGregor a ‘fluke’. Here is what he had to say:
“He’s out there strutting in front of Conor’s face. Obviously, it was a fluke. Conor broke his leg. It was a fluke decision ending. It wasn’t a knockout, it wasn’t a clear-cut decision, it wasn’t a submission. The guy is out there strutting in front of the guy’s face at a downfall when (McGregor) made his career and did everything for Dustin to give him this big fight.
I thought it was funny. It showed his true colors, character – he’s got his little prop, his wife Jolie out there. Obviously, she’s a prop. He only uses her for a prop because he knows he’s a piece of sh*t person and he wants to act like he’s a nice guy, family man, a father and a good husband. So it just showed his true character (Saturday) night. He’s a dirtbag, and so is the whole camp he resides at.”
We will see if UFC sets up a bout between Covington and Poirier down the line.
