Surging UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington plans to win UFC belts in at least two divisions.

“Chaos” was a recent guest on BJPENN RADIO where he revealed his plans on becoming a two-division champion.

“Yeah, you know, the thing is this. I could go up to 185 (pounds), or I could go down to 155 (pounds). I’ve been beating the best middleweights in the world at American Top Team for a long time. So, I could go up and whoop some middleweight’s (expletive). Or I could go down to 155. I decided early in my career that I would go to fight 170 (pounds). I’d take the belt at 170, and then I would go look for the biggest fight possible, you know? So, it looks like McGregor’s there at 155. So, you know, after I take the belt from Woodley, I’m going to be looking for that little Irish (expletive).”

Covington has been busy petitioning for a title fight with current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, this when he is not avoiding boomerang attacks from UFC heavyweights.

“Chaos” was most recently seen in action at UFC Fight Night 119 last month in Brazil, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over former title challenger Demian Maia.

In his post-fight interview Covington made headlines by calling Brazil “a dump” and went as far as to say that the countries people were “filthy animals”.

“I should have knocked him (Demian Maia) out. Brazil you’re a dump! All you filthy animals suck! I’ve got one thing to say.. Tyron Woodley I’m coming for you! If you don’t answer the front door, I am going to knock it in and take what’s mine, that welterweight belt!”

Do you think Colby Covington could join the likes of Randy Couture, BJ Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre by becoming a UFC champion in two divisions? Sound off PENN Nation!
