Drew McIntyre gets called out by UFC star

UFC welterweight fighter Colby Covington is back at it again.

Covington made it well known last week that he had plans to make the jump from the world of MMA to the pro wrestling business. He has doubled down on his intentions while doing an interview with Submission Radio.

This is where he issued a challenge to newly crowned WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. He started out by talking about how he wants to make wrestling real again, which is why he’s interested in doing business with the WWE.

“I think me and Drew McIntyre is a good match-up. He’s a big guy. It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog, and everybody knows the big the fight is in me.

I just think I can beat any man alive right now and I’m the best in the world. They need to let me go over there and make wrestling real again.”

In fact, he has set a timetable of 2021 as to when he plans to sign with WWE and start making appearances on their programs.

Whether that actually happens or not remains to be seen. He does have some connections as he’s friends with Kurt Angle and Bobby Lashley. With him being an outspoken fighter, he could make the transition to sports entertainment.

It all comes down to UFC President Dana White as he will have to either sign off on Covington working for WWE while still under contract with the UFC or Covington will have to be let out of his UFC deal.
