Colby Covington on fighting for the welterweight belt

Recently on The Submission Radio, Colby Covington expressed his keenness to fight for the welterweight belt and revealed his potential comeback. “I know I’m the welterweight champion,” Covington said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

“I know I’m the best welterweight on earth. Just because three judges didn’t decide it for me that night, that’s not going to affect my future and how I train and my preparation every day. I work hard, blue-collar American, I’m a 24/7, 365 fighter.

I’m not a part-time fighter. So as long as I’m in this thing, and I’m fully invested in my career, I’m going to keep getting better, and I’m going to keep working hard. I’m not halfway in, halfway out.

I’m fully in on this, and I want that welterweight title more than I want to live. Whatever it takes to get back there, I’m willing to do. The UFC knows that, so whoever they put in front of me, I promise you the chip on the shoulder of Colby is coming back, and he’s going to finish this and re-write all the wrongs of the past”.
