UFC 235: Anthony Smith Shuts Down Colby Covington’s Latest Verbal Attack on Jon Jones

Colby Covington has repeatedly hurled verbal trash in Jon Jones’ direction over the preceding months. But, the controversial fighter’s latest attack prompted a fiery response from the man who will battle “Bones” next, Anthony Smith.

Smith is preparing to face Jones on March 2nd at UFC 235. Recently Covington directed the tweet below to Jones, which prompted a pretty heated retort from Smith.

Hey @JonnyBones. Nobody’s looking. Go snort a few picograms.

its played out, Colby. Its not funny anymore. Stop throwing shade at my fight. Also, I heard you have a issue with me getting a title fight… next time I see you, we should talk about that. Or you gonna tuck your tail and hide in the corner of the gym like you did in Chicago?

How about that? Wonder if any more details might emerge regarding this apparent exchange in Chicago?
