Colby Covington and Mike Perry have exchanged plenty of trash talk over the last few years. Unfortunately, their respective positions in the welterweight rankings have made it difficult for the UFC to match them up with each other.
Colby Covington believes he has a solution that could open the door to a massive grudge match with Mike Perry.
Speaking on the latest episode of BJPenn.com Radio, he issued an interesting challenge to Perry. He says that, if he defeats Kamaru Usman to win the UFC welterweight title, he’ll grant Perry an immediate title shot.All Perry needs to do is win two fights in a row. The Floridian is already on a one-fight streak, having recently defeated Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira, so that means he’d only need to win one more.
“If Mike Perry can win two fights in a row he’s getting an immediate title shot,” Colby Covington told host Jason Kindschy. “I will defend my title against him. I know he can’t count to as high as two and I know he’s probably not going to win two fights row. If Mike Perry, that dumb motherf**king cousin f**ker, sheep lover, horse-face lover motherf**ker can win two fights in a row, Jason, he’s getting an immediate title shot. Winning two fights for a jobber who’s going to be fighting Indian casinos next year is going to be really tough for him. I don’t see it happening, but I wish him the best. I really do hope he wins another fight so I can literally break his jaw and send him packing. He’ll never fight again. I promise you that.”
Colby Covington continued, assuring he’d dominate Mike Perry in this potential title fight.
“If they locked me in the octagon with him they’d probably give me assault afterwards,” he said. “I’d probably be in jail for assault because the dude, he’d be helpless in there against me. Literally, he’d be helpless. That’s just all it would be. He’d be helpless. He wouldn’t be able to do anything. He’d be so gassed out. He thought he was gassed out in one round against ‘Cowboy’ Olivera? Who the f**k is that guy? You’re talking about the cream of the crop [with me]. America’s champion. The best welterweight to ever grace the UFC. He has no shot, Jason. So, I’m hoping he can get on a two fight win streak so I could end his career.
“One more and he’s getting fast tracked to the title, man. I’m going to give him his shot,” he said. “Mike Perry win two fights in a row. Come on, buddy. I’m praying for you. I know you can’t count to two, but I hope you can win two fights in a row.”
Do you think we’ll ever see Mike Perry and Colby Covington in the Octagon together?
