Colby Covington has continued his long-running war of words with fellow welterweight “Platinum” Mike Perry, claiming that if Perry can win his next two fights he wants to meet him in a title fight so he can “break his jaw” and "end his career."
The controversial Covington previously launched attacks towards Perry’s then-girlfriend who was cornering him after a loss to Max Griffin in 2018, referring to her as his “ratchet horse faced girlfriend,” while Perry has said that “nobody likes Covington’s b---h ass.”
Covington is next in-line to challenge the current 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman for the belt although with the fight not yet officially announced, “Chaos” wasted no time laying the boot into Perry in a recent episode on BJ Penn Radio:
“If Mike Perry can win two fights in a row he’s getting an immediate title shot. I will defend my title against him. I know he can’t count to as high as two and I know he’s probably not going to win two fights row. If Mike Perry, that dumb motherf----ng cousin f---er, sheep lover, horse-face lover motherf---er can win two fights in a row, Jason, he’s getting an immediate title shot. Winning two fights for a jobber who’s going to be fighting [in] Indian casinos next year is going to be really tough for him. I don’t see it happening, but I wish him the best. I really do hope he wins another fight so I can literally break his jaw and send him packing. He’ll never fight again. I promise you that.”
Covington went on to predict how dominating he’d be if the pair were to meet inside the Octagon.
“If they locked me in the Octagon with him they’d probably [charge me with] assault afterwards,” he said. “I’d probably be in jail for assault because the dude, he’d be helpless in there against me. Literally, he’d be helpless. That’s just all it would be. He’d be helpless. He wouldn’t be able to do anything. He’d be so gassed out. He thought he was gassed out in one round against [Alex] Oliveira? Who the f--- is that guy? You’re talking about the cream of the crop [with me]. America’s champion. The best welterweight to ever grace the UFC. He has no shot, Jason. So, I’m hoping he can get on a two fight win streak so I could end his career.
“One more and he’s getting fast tracked to the title, man. I’m going to give him his shot,” he said. “Mike Perry win two fights in a row. Come on, buddy. I’m praying for you. I know you can’t count to two, but I hope you can win two fights in a row.”
