Colby Covington took to Twitter on Thursday to rip on CM Punk. He took Punk to task for “stealing” all of Kenta Kobayashi’s (Hideo Itami) moves. For those of you that don’t know, Itami was the originator of the GTS in Japan and the move was later popularized by Punk on the independent scene and in WWE.
This is not the first time that Covington has talked trash about Punk on social media. He was one of the first fighters to call Punk out in 2014 when word got out that Punk was pursuing a career in MMA. I am guessing that Covington is hoping to get that next fight with Punk.
Speaking of plagiarizing… @CMPunk, you ever pay Kenta for stealing all his moves? Too bad you can't steal mine to win a real fight you poser.

So, what’s going on with CM Punk? He recently got his Blue Belt at Roufusport MMA Academy and there’s been a lot of talk that he’s going to fight again. As of this writing, there has been no announcement from UFC about another fight for Punk.
