Covington shared a video of two fighters competing inside the ring. One of whom is wearing protective gear, while the other is fighting without any. Along with the video, ‘Çhaos’ wrote something directed towards ‘The Eagle’ and ‘The Diamond’.

He wrote, “The guy wearing full nerf gear head to toe to protect his face and his feelings is Poirier. The guy with no headgear, wrestling credentials, or brain cells left is “khabib.”@DustinPoirier, Good guy? Bad guy? You be the judge.”

The video posted is supposed to be of Poirier beating an amateur fighter and celebrating. Covington has never shared a great relationship with Poirier or Nurmagomedov. Therefore, it came as no surprise that ‘Chaos’ took a dig at the fighters.

What’s next for Colby Covington, Dustin Poirier, and Khabib Nurmagomedov?

Ever since then there has been much talk as to when a rematch between Usman and Covington. Finally, Dana White has announced that if all goes well Colby Covington will face Usman later this year.

While Nurmagomedov is retired and there has been no fight scheduled for Covington as of now.
