‘Everybody’s gonna have to use their imagination on that one. I’m not claiming to be your boyfriend but you know, what’s up with titles these days? Why can’t two adults just have fun together? That’s exactly what we did. We spent a couple of days together, had a great time together.

Covington added, “I got to work on my bedroom cardio, keeping world-class championship form. I got nothing but respect for her. She’s a great girl, a beautiful girl. Most guys pay a million dollars just to hang out with Polyana. You gotta get me a million dollars to get me off the couch when I’m hanging out with Polyana Viana.”

However, Colby has realized that in a business like the UFC, any publicity is good publicity. Even if he is getting people to hate him, they are forking over PPV prices to see Colby get beaten up.
