Michael Bisping ‘Not Happy’ With Power Rating In Video Game Being The Same As Colby Covington
Michael Bisping believes he should be given more credit.
When asked about his power rating being the same as Colby Covington in “UFC 4,” he said it doesn’t make sense.
“Yeah, I’m not happy with this EA Sports nonsense. You know what I mean? What is going on? The same punching power as Colby Covington? Are you serious?,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel.
“Listen, no disrespect to Colby, are you serious? Come on, when has Colby ever one-punch KO’d someone?”
Bisping, a former UFC champion, has 18 knockouts out of 30 wins. Out of those 18, three of them were one-punch knockouts.
Covington, on the other hand, has four knockouts in 18 wins. Two of those were verbal submissions and none are knockouts.
Covington was also once an interim UFC champion in 2018 when he defeated Rafael Dos Anjos. But that was later taken away by Kamaru Usman who has ever since held the crown.
But this isn’t the first time Bisping had taken a shot at Covington.
After Covington’s interim champion win, Bisping, who was working the desk, had a rough on-air exchange.
Bisping has not fought since 2017 where he suffered a knockout loss against Kelvin Gastelum. Covington is also suffering a recent loss to Usman, which was a rematch.
Covington is returning to the octagon on March 5 at UFC 272 to take on Jorge Masvidal in the main event.
