Another member of American Top Team has come out against Colby Covington’s recent behavior, more importantly, his lack of support for Dustin Poirier ahead of UFC 242.
“You shouldn’t s**t in your gym,” Jedrzejczyk told the Score.
“What (Covington) has done, it’s like pretty shady, you know? I really do not respect that. … I really don’t like it because we are all teammates.”
Covington chose against fellow ATT fighter Poirier, when he headlined UFC 242 against Khabib Nurmagomedo when the two battled to unify the lightweight title last month in Abu Dhabi.
“How does that make me a sellout?” Covington told MMAFighting’s Damon Martin of the accusation made by Poirier. “If anything, I bought in and he tapped out. I’m giving the people America’s pick of the week. I don’t want to let the people down.”
“It was really not nice because even if I really like Khabib … I need to and I want to stick to my people and support them,” Jedrzejczyk said in defense of her teammate, Poirier.
“I saw how hard Dustin Poirier was training before the fight. The gym is very big. … We all are different, from different cultures, different countries, we all behave differently, we all have (a) different sense of humor. But the thing is you should support your teammates, it doesn’t matter if you like them or not. We represent one team, we represent the same colors, so we should support each other as much as we can.”
