Colby Covington looks to usurp Conor McGregor’s role as the best hype man in the UFC, and has called out the “Notorious” Irish fighter.
The interim welterweight champion would take time away from calling out the undisputed welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, to talk with Chael Sonnen about McGregor.
“He’s pretty good, but I think he’s one-dimensional,” Covington said.
“I think in the Chad Mendes fight, you had an out-of-shape 145-pounder come in and take him down and control him for two or three rounds. So you get a bigger guy at lightweight like a Khabib (Nurmagomedov) or even a welterweight, and when you take him down, it’s a lot more weight on you, a lot more power behind those ground-and-pound strikes. It’s a different fight. He lost to Nate Diaz and Nate Diaz was like 1-4 at welterweight. I think Khabib’s gonna take him down and pound him out.”
