EXCLUSIVE | Colby Covington on Joe Rogan: “I’m going to say something when I see him face to face”

On a recent episode of BJPENN.COM Radio, UFC 225 interim welterweight title challenger Colby Covington made headlines by suggesting that he he might have to slap UFC commentator Joe Rogan. Though Rogan promptly responded to these comments, asking Covington not to slap him, Covington isn’t satisfied.

Covington updated on his beef with Rogan on the most recent episode of BJPENN.COM Radio.

“His little mouth was trying to run and say things when he shouldn’t have an opinion,” Covington said on the show. “You’ve never been in an Octagon, you don’t have any experience fighting. Just ’cause you do these little Tae Kwan Do tournaments and you can’t even get first place in those, doesn’t mean you can come talk to the King of Chaos, AKA the new welterweight king on June 9th.”

“[The beef will] be squashed when he stops running his little mouth like his opinion matters,” Covington continued. “His opinion is irrelevant. He thinks he has a say in everything and he’s a biased announcer as it is.

“If it’s Jon Jones fight, his balls are so far in [Rogan’s] mouth that he’s just going to be saying anything Jon does, ‘Oh, my God! He’s the greatest of all time!’ This and that, so. I don’t think the beef’s squashed. I got something to say to him and I’m going to say something when I see him face to face in Chicago.”

Colby Covington’s beef with Rogan stems from a comment Rogan made on his podcast, in which he suggested that Covington should be careful what he says about Jon Jones, as he may find himself face-to-face with Jones one day.
