In a recent YouTube video, Daniel Cormier shared his thoughts on Colby Covington vs Ian Machado Garry and explained why it should happen soon. “Colby has to fight him,” Cormier said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.

“The one thing about Colby Covington, and granted, I’m a guy that gets along with Covington. I like Colby Covington. I think that Colby Covington is playing a role, and it annoys a lot of people, but I like Colby.

The one thing about Colby was, for all the things he said and for all the annoyance, the way that he messed with people, he always showed up to fight anybody. There was never a matchup that he said no to. I think we’re at a point now with this Ian Garry thing, where he has to fight him”.

”With all the insults, with all the things he’s said, personally, professionally, now you gotta go and fight him because that’s what he’s always done, When he spoke about Kamaru Usman in weird ways or disrespectful ways, he fought Kamaru Usman.

When he talked about Leon Edwards, he fought Leon Edwards. When he talked about anybody, he fought them if that was an option. He’s got to step on that battlefield, and he’s got to show that he’s willing to stand behind his words. I think that’s where we’re at right now in this Colby Covington-Ian Garry deal”.
