It’s no secret that Colby Covington enjoys ruffling everyone’s feathers. He relishes in being the UFC’s ultimate villain.
At UFC 225 on Saturday, Covington squares off with former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos in a battle for a different belt. Dos Anjos and Covington are fighting for the interim welterweight title.
Covington has kept to his code of verbally smacking his opponent around in the lead-up to the fight. Dos Anjos, however, isn’t rocked by his opponent’s attempts to rattle him.
“I knew what’s coming already. He always come with the same joke and copying someone,” Dos Anjos told the media in the run-up to the fight.
“He’s embarrassing himself… I feel bad for him.”
