Colby Covington hasn’t been afraid to make a few enemies during his UFC career so far, and that includes continuing to take aim at UFC color commentator Joe Rogan.
Rogan had shown up on Covington’s radar after Rogan said on an episode of his podcast that ‘Chaos’ should be careful talking trash about Jon Jones, because he might have to see him in person one day.
Covington later retaliated by claiming that the next time he saw Rogan he might, “give him a slap,” and now in another interview a few weeks later he’s doubled down on his threat to confront him.
“[Joe Rogan’s’] little mouth was trying to run and say things when he shouldn’t have an opinion,” Covington said on BJPenn Radio recently. “You’ve never been in an Octagon, you don’t have any experience fighting. He thinks he has a say in everything and he’s a biased announcer as it is.”
“Just because you do these little Tae Kwon Do tournaments and you can’t even get first place in those, doesn’t mean you can come talk to the ‘King of Chaos,’ AKA the new welterweight king on June 9th. I got something to say to him and I’m going to say something when I see him face-to-face in Chicago.”
Admit his numerous beefs with high-profile UFC stars, hopefully Covington will still be focused on the task at hand, which is fighting for the interim welterweight title against Rafael dos Anjos next weekend in the co-main event of UFC 225.
