Colby Covington can be very happy after last night's victory over Jorge Masvidal. He showed quality, was better and in the end deservedly won. However, what is an integral part of his behavior is trash talk. He did the same this time: “I think I deserve it,” said Covington after the fight, as quoted by skysports “Jorge just signed his contract before the fight because he knew he was going to get his ass whooped and knew he wasn’t going to get any more leverage or power to negotiate with, after I whooped his ass, on Monday morning.
Colby believes he should be paid more than Jorge Masvidal “I want to be paid more than Jorge Masvidal now”. This time Colby Covington had to mention Jorge Masvidal's ex-wife “He likes to rub that in my face, ‘Oh, I make more money than you.’ “First off, no he doesn’t because he pays half of it to Maritza, his ex-wife.
So, no, he doesn’t make more money than me but I need to be making more money than Jorge”.
Colby Covington on Jorge Masvidal
Covington believes Masvidal's time is over. What is most important to Colby is that he has achieved what he set out to do and what he has mentioned over the past few months.
Jorge was the right test for him, and he successfully passed that exam as well. We'll see what happens next “That guy’s a flash in the pan, two-pump chump like his ex-wife Maritza said and he’s 37 years old.
“I just turned 34 two weeks before this fight. I’m in my prime, I’m getting better every single day and you still haven’t seen the best of me”. There are many potential opponents for Colby, but Dana White and the UFC will ultimately decide who will be the right one for him. Whoever it is, it will not have an easy job.
