In a recent interview with ‘The Schmo’, Schmo asked Covington whether he has some advice to give his teammate Perry after suffering a loss in his last fight. That is when Covington opened up about Perry and took a dig at him.

‘Chaos’ said – “Mike Perry is a dirtbag. I have nothing to say to him, you know. That guy, just the biggest piece of sh*t. Trash in all sports. I mean, he completely, you know, threw our gym under the bus. Didn’t pay his gym percentage fee”.

Colby Covington on Mike Perry always changing gyms

Perry has changed several gyms for his professional MMA career. Few well-known gyms he used to train at are ‘Jackson-Wink MMA’, ‘Fusion X-Cel’, and more. 

In the same interview, Covington also talked about Perry changing his gyms.

‘Chaos’ said – “We opened the doors to Mike Perry, you know. We didn’t want to let him here because he’s been through 10 different jumps, gyms disruptive, you know, just causing bad energy within these gyms. So, we gave him a home when no one else wanted him”.

To conclude talking about Perry, Covington said, “Come pay the gym fees, man”.

It’s clear by now that Covington dislikes Perry and won’t stop taking a dig at Perry until he pays his dues to the gym. It’s not the first time Covington took a dig at his teammate. One popular name that comes to mind is Jorge Masvidal. Covington and Perry might become rivals the same way Covington and Masvidal became rivals.
