Colby Covington picked up a huge win last night at UFC Fight Night 119 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, taking out Demian Maia via decision in what proved to be a bloody contest.

Following his win, Chaos decided to call out the current UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley, challenging him to a fight. This isn't the only time he has done this, however.

In the past, Covington has threatened to “b***h slap” Woodley with an interim title and expose his weaknesses inside the Octagon.

The Chosen One has since responded to this most recent call out at UFC Fight Night 119, and unsurprisingly, he wasn't pleased.

Woodley said in a series of tweets about Covington that he wasn't happy or impressed by anything the fighter did in Sao Paulo on Saturday night.

He said in one tweet: "He changed his name to Colby "Cotton Fist" Covington. Or Easy Money Covington. Sum like that. I'm embarrassed he was proud of that."

In another tweet, the UFC Welterweight Champion said: "Please teach him how to respectfully earn a shot."

Woodley clearly isn't entertaining a title fight against Covington anytime soon. He has been out of action since scoring a one-sided decision victory over Maia this past July at UFC 214 as he revealed after that fight he had picked up an injury and would need some time off.

The UFC Welterweight Champion is next expected to put his title on the line against either Robbie Lawler or Rafael dos Anjos, depending on who wins in the fight between those two which will take place on December 16 in Winnipeg, Canada. Covington will most likely have to wait in line for his opportunity.
