Dustin Soirier, he’s terrible, he’s garbage. I used to train with him, the guy’s a complete bum. I mean, he’s funny because he’s talking all this talk, it’s on sight when I see Colby. No, it’s not on sight, bitch, you know who your daddy is,” said Covington.

Oh yeah, and talking about Dustin, I thought that fight should’ve gotten canceled, man. Con man McGregor called out Dustin for the truth, he’s using his charity to make money for himself, it’s a tax write-off,” he added.

He’s not actually using that money for kids, he knows Conor McGregor knows Dustin Soirier is literally a Con man, He’s conning the people with this so-called charity, Good Fight Foundation. Dude, guys, the fakest guy in the world. I wish people really knew who Dustin Soirier was, not just who they portray him as in the media,” Covington added further.

Covington and Poirier used to train together at the ATT Gym in Florida. But they are not in good terms anymore since ‘Chaos’ left the gym. The recent attacks are not the first time Covington has gone after Poirier.

What’s next for Dustin Poirier and Colby Covington?

Covington is currently next in line to challenge welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in a rematch. The duo fought at UFC 245 beforehand with ‘The Nigerian Nightmare‘ finishing his opponent in the final round of the contest. Covington has since racked up a win to reclaim his spot as the no.1 contender of the UFC’s welterweight division.

Poirier, on the other hand, will fight Conor McGregor in what will be a trilogy between the duo. The Louisiana native knocked out McGregor at UFC 257 to level the score between them at 1-1. ‘The Notorious‘ has a win over his counterpart at UFC 178, dating back to 2014.

How ‘The Diamond‘ responds to his former training partner’s recent array of verbal attacks, remains to be seen.
