UFC prospect Colby Covington is clearly not a fan of former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Covington has been making his name known as of late by being a dangerous fighter and a top trash talker in the sport.
If you recall, what sparked all of the hype around him was when he called the entire country of Brazil “filthy animals” after winning a unanimous decision over Demian Maia at UFC Sao Paulo last month.
Then, he started taking jabs verbally t current welterweight champion Tyron Woodley
Covington’s latest call out may be his most dangerous one yet, which is Jones. To tell this story right then you have to include the fact that Covington lived with Jones for two years in college.
The UFC prospect recently spoke with Submission Radio and during the interview, he put Jones on blast some of his outside the cage antics and his humble persona.
"I’m saying truths, I’m saying facts. I’m just speaking my mind. I didn’t know I wasn’t allowed to speak my mind in this world. I think I know him more than most people since I lived with him for two years.
“The guy’s a fake - his little f**king baby-faced tweets to Georges St-Pierre, it just got under my skin. He’s just trying to act like a saint, ‘Oh, I’m praying for you.’ Shut up, man. Go do some more coke. Go cheat on your wife some more. You’re a piece of shit dirtbag.”
“We were cool the first couple of months we lived together but he was difficult as shit to live with. The guy was dirty, he stunk, he didn’t shower. The guy was just a mess. He was getting into partying and all that bad stuff back then.
He was just going down the wrong path but he always tried to act like a saint, ‘Oh, I’m into religion, I’m all about God,’ this and that. He’s just fooling all the fans. He needs to be exposed for the real person that he is because he ain’t this saint and good person like he tries to act like he is.”
The former UFC champion failed an in-competition drug test at UFC 214. Due to that failed drug test, Jones has been provisionally suspended by USADA pending a full investigation by the CAC (California Athletic Commission).
Jones defeated his arch-rival Daniel Cormier by third-round TKO in the main event of UFC 214 on July 29 in Anaheim, California on PPV (pay-per-view) to regain the title. Jones tested positive for Turinabol.
In the past, UFC health and performance vice president Jeff Novitzky has gone on record by stating that Jones’ latest case is still being investigated.
