Nate Diaz claimed he didn’t even know who Colby Covington was after soundly defeating Anthony Pettis at UFC 241, which appears to have got under the skin of the current welterweight No.1 contender who has now blasted back at the Stockton star.
“I could give a sh*t less about that journeyman Nate Diaz,” Covington told mmafighting.com. “He’s another .500 level fighter. He wins one fight for every loss and [is] a guy that sits out three years. Who gives a sh*t about that guy. I’ve steamrolled real men that have rag-dolled that little snowflake. The only thing worse than his lisp and his speech impediment is his wrestling.
“The thing is, nobody every accused Nate Diaz of being smart but avoiding me and not talking about me might be the smartest thing that b*tch-boy’s ever done. He knows exactly who I am. His brother, we were supposed to set up the fight last year at Madison Square Garden until he got cold feet and pulled out last minute.
“But they know exactly who I am. I’m the king of the f*cking division. I’ve got a belt around my shoulders, something he’ll never see. The only thing he may ever get a belt in is the weed industry but he needs to stop being hooked on weed and get hooked on phonics.”
