Colby Covington isn’t fighting for the UFC’s welterweight title this Saturday like he believes he should be, and “Chaos’ is doing his best to remind folks of that.
Kamaru Usman was tapped over Covington to battle welterweight champ Tyron Woodley at UFC 235, and ever since the bout was announced, Covington’s made it abundantly clear he’s not happy. The ATT fighter won the interim title last summer, but he passed on facing Woodley last September, due to pending nasal surgery. Covington also reportedly said no to fighting Usman this past January (when the UFC was looking to save UFC 233), while the latter had agreed.
Well, Covington crashed Usman’s open workouts on Thursday, and as you can by watching the video below, he also interrupted Dana White’s blackjack game.

The big question is will the tactics work? Will Covington get tapped to face the winner of Woodley – Usman without having to win another fight like White said?
