Great American Colby Covington believes his old “woke” pal Tyron Woodley, who wore a red ‘Make Racists Catch The Fade Again’ hat to his weigh-in for a September fight against Covington before being knocked out by Covington, is taking a fight against Jake Paul because he’s broke and will throw the fight.
“He’s almost 40 years old now. He’s 38, 39, and Jake’s taking the right steps and taking the right fights with the right fighters that are kind of at the end of their careers and don’t really have enough gas left in the tank, so it’s sad,” Covington said during an interview with MMA Junkie. “But I’m still Tyron’s daddy and Jake Paul has to come see daddy if he wants to claim to be one of the best fighters in the world. But until then, you want to keep fighting these guys that are past their time, then OK. But it’s not credible and Tyron Woodley does not represent the MMA world.
“But they’re doing this on purpose, and I really think Tyron is going out there to take a dive. I think he’s broke. He needs the money. He’s got mouths to feed. He’s got a lot of alimony paychecks to pay. So I think he’s just going to go out there and take a dive. It’s going to be a circus, and we know boxing is the most corrupt sport in the world as it is. So this little side circus they’re doing with Jake Paul, of course they’re going to favor his way to make it a work.”
Covington said Woodley has mouths to feed, alimony to pay, and this fight against Jake Paul is just a way to make ends meet. Colby, who has done a great job selling fights in the past, seems to be laying the groundwork for his own fight against Jake Paul to put a little coin in his own pocket.
“But I’m still Tyron’s daddy and Jake Paul has to come see daddy if he wants to claim to be one of the best fighters in the world. But until then, you want to keep fighting these guys that are past their time, then OK. But it’s not credible and Tyron Woodley does not represent the MMA world.”
And that’s how it’s done, folks. Take your shots at Woodley, work in some *fire* quotes and then take a shot at the guy he’s fighting so there’s a story once this fight ends and people are disappointed they spent $50 to watch Woodley vs. Paul.
