Colby Covington is not pleased with his paycheck. Speaking with Ariel Helwani ahead of his championship fight against Kamaru Usman at UFC 245, Colby voiced his displeasure with his past negotiations with UFC President Dana White.
Referring to the organization as “stupid and corrupt,” he went on to say that he is seriously considering a move to the WWE if the UFC fails to pay him what he thinks he deserves.
Covington is one of the more polarizing fighters in the promotion after completely re-branding himself as a heel in order to give him the boost he needed. Constantly seen toting his red MAGA hat, Colby “Chaos” Covington has lived to his nickname as he is no stranger to chaos and controversy.
Colby notoriously confronted a gambling Dana White at the Palms casino and was involved in a physical confrontation with Dominance MMA CEO, Ali Abdelaziz. He has also burned bridges with teammates, notably Jorge Masvidal.
Before securing a larger payday, Colby will have to convincingly put away Usman and secure the Welterweight Title this Saturday night in Las Vegas.
