Speaking to James Lynch of The Line Movement, Covington said that he knows the real reason why he hasn’t been booked for his next fight yet.
“To be honest, I just think the UFC hates me and they hold a grudge against me for no reason. Any way they can try to f*ck me and screw me at any corner, they’re going to do that,” Covington said.
“I begged to fight Woodley, the fans have been clamoring to see that fight for three or four years, that fight has been manifesting itself for seven or eight years since we used to train together at American Top Team and we were training partners. So this is a grudge match that needs to be settled.”
