Colby Covington talks about Jon Jones
In a recent interview with Michael Bisping, Colby Covington spoke about Jon Jones refusing to let Covington fight in the same card as him. “Is Jon Jones going to be willing to share a card with his former college roommate who knows all his dirty secrets, all the dirty skeletons in his closet?” Covington said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.
“I bet that he’s going over to the UFC right now and he’s telling them, ‘Yo, I’m not sharing a card with Colby. I will refuse to fight here.’ “So, the only way I see that fight happening is, we know Jon’s unpredictable, we know he might go sniff some white girls, kind of like Joe Biden.
Covington further said: He’s not to be relied on. He might get pulled off the card, and we might have to save the day and be the main event”. “So, the only way I see that fight happening is, we know Jon’s unpredictable, we know he might go sniff some white girls, kind of like Joe Biden.
