UFC welterweight Colby Covington spoke to James Lynch out of MMA News and commented on Jon Jones’ recent controversies. In late September, ‘Bones’ Jones was caught up with the law in Las Vegas following his Hall of Fame Fight Induction ceremony. The charges ranged from a felony to a misdemeanor, with his partner being involved in the latter.

Covington has had a history with Jones through their collegiate career and there’s no love lost between both men. He has used every available opportunity to slander Jones and once again, he dropped some vicious one-liners. Covington referenced Jones’ controversy in Las Vegas and had some rather disparaging things to say.

“I’m not surprised. That guy [Jon Jones] is going to do felon-type stuff, criminal type activity. That guy’s a piece of sh*t man, the guy’s a dirtbag. Beating your wife? She’s so manipulative and messed up emotionally from what he’s done to her over the years, you can tell she has trauma so she doesn’t want to rat him out.”

“He used to bring home big money for her…. I get where she’s coming from and why it’s happening but that’s sad. You put your hands on a woman, left her with marks and blood.”

“It’s despicable. I think the UFC should just milk out his career and not let him ever fight again. That guy shouldn’t be fighting, he doesn’t deserve to be in a cage.”

When Jon Jones decides to fight at heavyweight, he will more likely than not, walk straight into a title fight. He will be keenly awaiting the results of UFC 270’s main event scrap between Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane.
