Former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington is known for his trash talk in his pro-MMA career and has been ramping it up heading into his next fight under the UFC banner.
Covington spoke with Ariel Helwani to promote his fight against Kamaru Usman for the UFC Welterweight Title in the headliner of UFC 245 on Saturday night.
This is where he stated that since he doesn’t think that he’s being compensated the way he should by the UFC, he’s more than willing to retire in order to achieve his goal of wrestling in WWE.
“UFC needs to pay up, if they don’t pay up after this fight you will probably see me in WWE. This is it, I’m putting my foot down. I am willing to retire after Saturday night and go to WWE forever and leave this stupid corrupt business behind.”
