UFC title contender Justin Gaethje expressed his hatred towards controversial welterweight Colby Covington. Gaethje put Covington alongside “child pedophiles and murderers,” people he despises “more than anybody on planet Earth.”
- According to Gaethje, he had nothing but good things to say about Covington when they were together in a rally supporting U.S. President Donald Trump in mid-September. His opinion of “Chaos” soured after seeing him doing a “bunch of interviews.” One he’s likely referring to was when Covington lambasted the Black Lives Matter movement.
- Gaethje’s gripes with Covington is seemingly personal, as he wants to “slap him right across the face.”
- Covington competes at 170 pounds while Gaethje competes at 155 pounds. A fight between the two inside the UFC Octagon is highly unlikely.
