In a recent interview with BJPenn.com Radio Cobly ‘Chaos’ Convington shared his thoughts on Nate Diaz’s return fight with Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis, as well as some other comments.
Here’s what he had to say:
“Two lightweights coming up to welterweight because they’re on these doughboy diets. They can’t make their limit of 155 anymore. It’s an exciting matchup for the fans. It’s two guys that are way past their time that are just going to come in slobber knocker and we’ll see what happens. Who is going to get their hand raised. No one knows. Is it going to be Pettis? Is it going to be Diaz?”
“I don’t think either one of them wants to come fight for a title at welterweight. These are guys that are at the top of the division that are in their prime right now are good everywhere. They can fight. They’re not just strikers, they’re not just wrestlers. They’re not just jiu jitsu guys. They can do it all.”
“Nate Diaz, his energy, he’s not the same guy as on cameras as he is off the camera. I’ve seen him off camera, he’s all, ‘Colby, hey bro, much respect. You’re so tough, man.’ This and that, but on camera, he tries flipping me off. He tries to act like a hard ass. So, he doesn’t want any of this. Deep down inside he knows he has no chance against me. He got mopped up by Dong Hyun Kim. I retired Dong Hyun Kim. He got mopped up by RDA. I beat fucking the living brakes off RDA, left him for dead. Nate Diaz is a little b***h. He knows who runs the West Coast. That’s Colby “Chaos” Covington.”Colby Covington talking to BJPenn.com Radio
