Covington – “If I dont get Woodley, I’ll take Wonderboy”

Colby Covington declares his interest in fighting Stephen Thompson if the title shot he has been pushing for doesn’t unfold.

After earning a decision victory over Demian Maia in Sao Paulo last October, controversial Welterweight contender, Colby Covington has urged the UFC for his chance to face current Welterweight king, Tyron Woodley.

Although there seems to be a solid rivalry between Woodley and Covington, the UFC look to be pushing towards a title shot for the ex-Lightweight champion, RDA.

Sharing his displeasure at the rumours, Covington had this to say in a recent interview with Radio.

“I don’t get why UFC wants to do RDA-Woodley. I mean, RDA is 3-2 in his last five.”


Covington continued saying.

“Last five fights, I’m 5-0, so RDA was just getting melted by Lightweight’s last year. Eddie Alvarez. The guy’s a complete bum. He’s just looking to piggyback and get one more fight, then he’s out of the game man.”


“And that’s what these guys dont understand. I’m the future. These guys are all old, at the end of their careers. I’m just getting started. I’m just getting warmed up. You haven’t even seen my potential yet.”


If RDA is next in line to challenge for the title, Covington has stated his willingness to take another opponent on the same card.

“Yeah, I mean, if the UFC’s gonna do RDA vs Woodley, then I guess I am fighting Stephen Thompson on the same card as them.”


He also mentioned.

“So I’m lined up, so I can get the winner of that next fight after I put choir boy out to the pasture. But you are gonna have to ask [Thompson’s] daddy, if he’s gonna let him fight. I’m not sure if his dad is gonna let him fight.”


Will we see the ATT representative challenge for the Welterweight title next?
