Colby Covington skyller förlusten mot Usman på UFC och NSAC

Colby Covington Kamaru Usman tjafs

Colby Covington förlorade sin titelmatch mot mästaren Kamaru Usman på UFC 245 i december, där han även fick sin käke bruten.

Han ger nu sin första intervju sedan förlusten, där han ifrågasätter hur Usmans hörna visste om skadan. Covington menar även att UFC och NSAC ska stå till svars för att informationen läckte ut.

Via ’Ariel Helwani MMA Show’:

I just kind of wanted to sit back and see how people were going to talk about the fight. I wanted to see all of these so-called MMA journalists, how they were going to call it. Were they going to call it down the line, call it fair or if they were going to take their feelings out.

I know I am the most hated man in UFC and in sports right now. But put your feelings to the side for a second, that’s what real journalism is. Break down the fight and actually analyze the fight. Let’s talk about the fake nut shot, let’s talk about the fake eye poke, the fake stoppage, the fake ref and let’s talk about the fake NSAC, the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Let’s talk about how they dropped the ball.

Covington känner att stoppet var för tidigt. Men det som gör honom arg, är att Usmans hörna blev medvetna om hans skada eftersom de kunde höra om det via sändningen av mötet på TV.

How did they get my corner’s audio in the third round when Marty was ready to quit and give up? But all of a sudden he gets reinvigorated because he knows I have a broken jaw and he get that information from his corner. How was he allowed to, how is that possible.

Klagomålen bör riktas mot UFC och ESPN istället för NSAC. Ljudupptagningen från mitt inne i buren är någonting som alltid brukar göras av UFC, men saken är klar att Covington är upprörd över att det kan ha påverkat matchen.

I don’t know if it’s on UFC or NSAC, but someone needs to be held accountable. I don’t expect to get a fair fight. I know everybody hates me. But I am fighting not only two people in the Octagon, Marty Fakenewsmen, a corrupt and incompetent ref, and now I also have to fight the NSAC releasing my corner audio.

I thought we were supposed to be 25 feet away in the Octagon and there’s not supposed to be any audio of your corner and of what is going on between rounds? But how is that being broadcast to the world when we are in a loud sold out arena? How does it get to the other corner that I have a broken jaw?

Han känner nu att ett returmöte nu borde bokas.

It’s just not fair, they need to run it back. There is 10 more rounds of this. There is going to be a sequel and then a trilogy. Marty is the only one in this world that does not want this fight. The people want this fight, I am the people’s champion and I fight for the people.

Marc ‘Not So’ Goodard (it’s Goddard) robbed the people of a fair fight, down the middle. This needs to be ran back, and if it’s not ran back, then it’s a very corrupt business and a fix. I beat his ass every round and he got saved by the ref.

Covington hade innan mötet 7 raka vinster.

Vad tycker ni om hans kommentarer? Ska han få en direkt returmatch?
