UFC welterweight Colby Covington joins Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show via Skype to discuss the drama surrounding the 170 pound division. (1:35) Covington expresses his frustrations with not getting a fight with welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who is reportedly facing Kamaru Usman, with Usman saying he signed a bout agreement. (4:12) Covington is unsure if the UFC is punishing him or if they are punishing Woodley for this fight not happening. Covington says he is standing his ground and wants his next fight to be against Woodley and wants the UFC to stick to their word and make this bout. (9:31) Covington explains that he hasn’t been in contact with UFC president Dana White, but wants to get clarification from him on this situation. (10:24) Covington says he isn’t impressed with Usman’s win over Rafael dos Anjos at the Ultimate Fighter Finale. (11:15) Covington provides his thoughts on the UFC’s newest addition to the welterweight division Ben Askren and says that if Askren builds himself up as a better box office draw, then he would be interested in a fight against him. (14:47) Covington predicts that when it is all said and done, he will be facing Woodley on March 2.
