In a recent interview with Submission Radio, Colby Covington shared his thoughts on Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz. “I mean, just two complete washouts of the UFC that are 40 years old should be in retirement homes,” Covington said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

“They’re going to go out there, these sloppy, old * dudes, like, they can’t perform in the UFC no more at this high elite level like me and at the top of the division. They both * got 10 seconds of fame in the UFC, you know, living off these fights from 10 years ago.

So, let them go do the thing. I mean, if the UFC is signing off on it, I’m all about whatever the UFC signs off on.

“I could care less about Jorge. He needs to stop talking to my big brother Chael though.

Man, guys, that’s the real fight. Like, why is he talking to Chael? Everybody’s calling what I did to Jorge was the easiest fight of my life. I * smacked that little scrub around and * play with him. He’s my little * , little brother.

I mean, imagine my big brother, uncle Chael, the wrestling gangster, the biggest biceps in martial arts industry. Like, imagine if he got a hold of him. Chael would * squash Jorge like a little * bug”.
