Recently on The Submission Radio, Colby Covington shared his thoughts on facing Charles Oliveira.

“The guy’s just a weight bully cutting to 155 because he wants to be stronger in there because he doesn’t have a mental edge,” Covington said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “He’s mentally weak, so he needs to have a physical edge.

He needs to be the bigger guy in the fight to feel confident going into a fight”.

“He’s another one of those guys with baseless words, Said all these things, ‘I want big legacy fights, I want to go up to 170.’ Well, here’s your chance, Charles Oliveira.

I’m the biggest fight you can get. Former world champion, the king of Brazil, the king of Miami, Donald Trump’s favorite fighter. What’s going to be bigger for your legacy, Charles, than fighting me? You want the biggest fight? The ball is in your court, Charles”.
