The former interim champion, Colby Covington, was offered to fight Leon Edwards in 2021 on short notice. However, he did not accept that fight, demanding to be paid more. Covington spoke about it on the ‘Submission Radio’ podcast, where mentioned that he was busy romancing Polyana Viana, who was his training partner as well. He said, “There wasn’t much talks [about the Leon Edwards fight]. I was busy b***s deep on Polyana Viana so to get me off the couch on three weeks’ notice to fight some Leon Scott guy, it was going to be a price tag.”

This comment apparently caught the attention of Polyana Viana, who then set the record straight. She mentioned that she and Colby Covington were just friends and that she already had a romantic partner. In addition to that, Viana also mentioned that ‘Chaos’ made an unusual request to her, which she did not agree to do, which led him to get upset. “Colby wanted me to finger him in the a**, but I did not want to. He got upset,” said the strawweight fighter without holding back. But all that was in 2021. What does Covington’s love life look like presently?
