In a recent interview, Michael Page shared his thoughts on fighting Colby Covington.

“I hate this guy,” Page said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I’m going to be happy to kick this guy in the face. … I find him fake. He just doesn’t seem like a nice guy. With all the stuff that came out last time about what fighters should and shouldn’t be allowed to talk about with regards to people.

People are going deep now, talking about each other’s wives, and moms and dads, and he was very much into it, I just didn’t like that".

"I come from a martial arts background, so that’s not the way we do things.

I think he’s trying too hard to stay relevant. As much as we are a tough sport, we want to show that we’re true sportsmen I feel fresh after my last fight, more than willing to go, I think there is definitely a want for me to be on that card, it’s just who’s ready? It seems that everyone has got hamstring issues and stuff all of a sudden.

It just seems like we’re trying to get an opponent and nobody seems to be ready”.
