Some in 2016, the Brazilian Mixed Martial Arts was booked to fight and defend his Lightweight Championship against McGregor, which was followed by Featherweight champion at UFC 196. He's the greatest of all time!' - this and that.
Covington has been making some dark personal accusations against Jones, including an accusation that "Bones" has been using Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) since college.
A meeting with UFC president Dana White is expected to take place in the near future concerning McGregor's next move, although sanctions are expected against the former two-weight champion before he steps back into the octagon. "He might be commentating that Chicago card, so that's kind of hypocritical of him to say something like that because when he's talking about me, we might be face to face". In his last fight, Colby Covington showed his ability to stop the takedowns of a high level grappler but he also absorbed a lot of punches from Maia who isn't exactly known for his effective striking. I'm not really concerned with who's ready, who's next. I made a decision to give him a pass. "I'm feeling good, I'm in the spirit", Covington said. And if they don't necessarily need him, he knows how much money he makes them. "I'm going to give Joe a pass". This comment was in response to Rogan warning Covington to be careful what he says about Jon Jones, in the event that he and Jones cross paths.
