Conor McGregor

Covington's insulting name for Conor McGregor is 'Con Man McGregor.'

Kamaru Usman

Covington calls Kamaru Usman 'Marty Fake Newsman' because he thinks Usman lied about his birthplace. Meanwhile, the other nickname, 'Snoozeman,' is a dig at Usman's fighting style, which Covington considers boring.

Jorge Masvidal

Covington has often tried to provoke his friend turned foe Jorge Masvidal by calling him 'Street Judas' and 'Journeyman Jorge.' Although, fans prefer 'Street Jesus.'

Nick Diaz

Covington calls Nick Diaz 'Stockton Soy Boy,' which is nothing but a dig at Diaz's plant-based diet. 

Leon Edwards

Covington calls Leon Edwards 'Leon Scott' because he thinks Edwards is a somewhat forgettable entity in the welterweight division. Meanwhile, the other nickname, Edwards 'Scissor Hands,' refers to a 1990 classic film featuring Johnny Depp.
