Former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington, in an interview with Mike Heck of MMAFighting, gave his reaction to Dana White saying 'Chaos' would be the UFC welterweight champ if Kamaru Usman didn't exist.
Speaking about the UFC President's comment, Covington said he did not take Dana White's words as a compliment. Instead, claimed himself to be the 'Champion', The Champion of America, which he believes to be bigger than any other title.
"No, I'm the champion. I don't know what Dana is talking about. I'm America's champion. That's a bigger championship than their title. I'm Donald Trump's favourite fighter, that's a way bigger title than any title in UFC. So, I don't take no prayer, I am the champion Dana what are you talking about? Go look at the 10 rounds that we fought. If you look at the body of work of ten rounds, I'm easily up for 6-4 or probably 7-3. I would say 7-3, through ten rounds, so I'm the champion."
Further into the interview, Colby Covington also went ahead and claimed to be the people's champion.
