Colby Covington clearly doesn’t appreciate the Australian superstars, Alexander Volkanovsky and Tai Tuivasa Cheering on Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272. “Chaos” replies to the Australians for crushing him in a recent interview.
Ahead of UFC 272, Alexander Volkanovski and Tai Tuivasa sat down to preview the blockbuster PPV fight this weekend at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fans will witness one of the biggest grudge fights in the promotion’s history as former friends Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal go head-to-head this weekend.
“Hope Colby bangs his head in.” said Tuivasa before the great fight. When asked why he doesn’t like “Chaos,” Tuivasa said he’s not a fan of “Rats.” World Featherweight Champion Alex Volkanovski is also hoping for the “Gamebred” Masvidal to beat Colby. “A good flying knee to stiffen Colby like a board would be good to see.” said Volkanovsky. Clearly unimpressed by the predictions, Covington responded in “chaos” style.

Colby Covington says Volkanovski and Tuivasa are attention seekers
After watching the two Australian fighters hope for the worst, Covington gave his immediate response. “Two irrelevant fighters currently targeting one of the biggest names in sport” said Covington. “You know, their fight doesn’t speak and doesn’t draw attention in the MMA world, so of course they’re going to use my name to try to make headlines.”
Covington and Tuivasa also previously had an ugly interaction with each other. Tai was caught throwing a boomerang at the American in a hotel lobby as the two got into an altercation.
Covington is coming off a well-fought loss to the world welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 268 and so is his former friend Jorge Masvidal. The two contenders are poised to settle their longtime beef in five or fewer rounds of the octagon. Colby is doing everything in his power to make this fight one of the biggest blockbusters with his press conferences and so far Chaos has been doing very well.
