Colby Covington Launches Astonishing Attack On Jon Jones After Confronting Vandals During Protests

Colby Covington Launches Astonishing Attack On Jon Jones After Confronting Vandals During Protests

Colby Covington has shockingly branded Jon Jones a "s*****g" and said it is "hilarious how fake he is" after heroically stopping vandals during protests.

UFC legend Jones, 32, uploaded a video of him taking to the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and putting a stop to anti-social behaviour amid the 'Black Lives Matter protests.'

'Bones' was met with widespread praise for confronting vandals and confiscating spray cans off them as he hit out against those abusing the protests in the wake of George Floyd's tragic death.

UFC star Covington, 32, has called Jones out for "trying to act like a baby-faced hero" and "conveniently" having a camera set up during the incident.

The former interim welterweight champ told Submission Radio: "The [weirdest] thing about the Jon Jones thing is that he just conveniently has a camera set upright as he is stealing spray cans from two protesters and rioters in the street.

"I just think it's hilarious how fake he is! And now he's trying to act like a baby-faced hero? Dude, you're a s*****g!"

The 32-year-old American has been in the headlines in recent weeks due to a high-profile public fallout with UFC president Dana White.

Jones has accused White of lying over his alleged money demands for a potential mega-UFC fight with Francis Ngannou.

Covington blasted Jones by suggesting his heroic actions in the streets of Albuquerque were merely a 'stunt' that would help him spin a positive image in contract talks with White.

"It's pathetic! The guy's out there begging for money! And all of a sudden, mysteriously, there's just a cameraman set up. And he's the good guy again," 'Chaos' explained.

"He's a baby-faced hero and wants to look good for negotiations with Dana, his boss. So, the guy is a complete joke. He doesn't deserve to be paid.

"Look at his history, his track record. It's one thing to make a mistake. But it's another thing to make the same mistake one after another. The guy's a dirtbag. He should be suspended for his whole career."
