"Scared" Dustin Poirier Called Out To Grudge Match By UFC Star

"Scared" Dustin Poirier Called Out To Grudge Match By UFC Star

UFC star Colby Covington has called for a "grudge match" with "scared" Dustin Poirier following his victory over Dan Hooker.

Poirier outpointed Hooker in a 'Fight of the Year' contender at UFC Vegas 4 last weekend.

But Covington wasn't impressed with his former teammate's performance as he eyes a showdown against him in the Octagon.

"Dustin Soyier, he interests me, just because all the sh*t he talks," the former UFC interim welterweight champion said.

"I don't like it when people go to the media and they say things. When I've said everything to you and the media, I've meant it, and I've backed it up. I say I want to fight someone, I go out there and fight him. Dustin's out there, saying, 'It's on sight next time I see you, Colby.'

"If it's on sight, let's go do it in front of the world. Let's go get paid and do it in front of the world. But he knows better than that. He's just going to stay scared and keep running from me just like his good friend Jorge 'Street Judas' Masvidal.

"Just all the sh*t he's talked about 'on sight' and, 'I want to move up to 170 [pounds],' and this and that," he added.

"Dustin walks around bigger than me. We've stepped on the scales. He's about 185. I'm one low 180s. I just don't have to cut weight because I'm not scared to fight at my natural weight because I know I'm the best in the world."

'Chaos' Covington continued: "I would love that grudge match with Dustin. He's one of the main reasons that the relationship with American Top Team went south, because he was always complaining Dan Lambert every day [saying] 'Colby's saying mean things to me, Dan. You need to set some laws down and let him know that he can't speak to me like that.'

"I'm sick of his crying and little attitude and that little bullshit comment of 'it's on sight.'

"Man, it's on sight. Let's do this man. Let's make it on sight then."

Covington hasn't fought since his devastating defeat to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 245 last December.

He currently has no fight booked as he angles for a clash against 'The Diamond'.
