Former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington teased a move to WWE over issues with UFC’s pay in a new interview with Ariel Helwani of ESPN.
“UFC needs to pay up, if they don’t pay up after this fight you will probably see me in WWE,” said Covington h/t WrestlingNews.co. “This is it, I’m putting my foot down. I am willing to retire after Saturday night and go to WWE forever and leave this stupid corrupt business behind.”
Covington will face Kamaru Usman for the UFC Welterweight Championship tonight at UFC 245 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We have the interview embedded in the player above.
