A few days ago, Drew McIntyre said he would accept the challenge from UFC’s Colby Covington and now he is doubling down on his words.
During an interview with ESPN’s Ara Ocal, McIntyre says he is sure Covington would probably do well in WWE but it won’t work out so well for him if he gets into an “unsanctioned fight.”
“If he wants this unsanctioned fight outside of WWE, I’m willing to fight him in a bar or something.”
McIntyre added, “I’ll smash his head in, I’ll shut him up, I’ll break his jaw like Usman did… Colby, I’ll fight you, mate.”
McIntyre said that there would be no title shot because that is only reserved for WWE Superstars.
