Former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington is known for his trash talk in his pro-MMA career. Alongside with his fighting ability, Covington is one of the top contenders in the welterweight division under the UFC banner.
With such trash talk and ability to get people to dislike him, some fans think that if he wanted to do so he could make the move to the pro wrestling business.
Covington recently spoke with Submission Radio about a wide range of topics including having recent talks With Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar.
“Oh man, it was really good,” Covington said on Submission Radio. “Yeah, I got to speak at length with Paul Heyman a couple of months ago, like two months ago, three months ago when WWE was here for Monday Night Raw.
“They were in Miami at American Airlines arena and I went backstage, got to chat with him a little bit, saw Brock Lesnar, he gave me a pound. [He] was like, ‘keep it up man, love what you’re doing champ.’ Yeah, and Paul was just giving me some tips, man, and this and that. And he was like, ‘man, you’re perfect for pro wrestling. I love what you’re doing and keep up the hard work, you know, the power of the promo is real.'”
