An octagon confrontation between Colby Covington and Ian Garry is something that the former is ready to take place.
Since the Irishman brazenly stated that he would defeat ‘Chaos’ in a possible battle during an interview with ‘The Schmo’ in October, the feud between Covington and Garry has been smoldering. Garry has been a rival of Covington.
Take a look at the comments made by Ian Garry below (20:35):
On the other hand, ‘The Future’ has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons recently, mainly because of the revived attention in a book written by his wife Layla Anna-Lee in 2010 called How to be WAG, which has sparked debates about his marital situation. While Garry was in the midst of preparations for UFC 296, which took place earlier this month, Covington, who is known for his combative nature, took advantage of the circumstance and criticized him.
A previous challenger for the welterweight title in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) once again focused on Garry and his wife, making severe charges about their relationship, during a recent interview with Tucker Carlon, an American political journalist who is traditionally conservative. As Covington put it:
This man is pretty enraged. It is my belief that he is most likely interested in settling the differences within the octagon. In the event that it does occur, I enjoy competing in the octagon, and if it were to take place at some point in the future, I would be proud to settle that.
He went on to say:
“It’s not someone I’m scheduled to fight; it’s someone who’s been talking smack in the media, been throwing some terms around in the media, and never done or accomplished half of what I’ve accomplished in sports, so I have to give back to him a little bit.”
Colby Covington eyes Florida governor role in future
In light of the fact that his career in mixed martial arts is coming to an end, Colby Covington has lately revealed his expectations for the future. The American citizen, who is 35 years old, has voiced his excitement about entering the sphere of politics with the long-term objective of someday being the governor of Florida, which is where he currently resides.
The close relationship that exists between Covington and former President of the United States Donald Trump is well known, and ‘Chaos’ considers Trump to be his hero. In addition, Covington participates in Trump’s political rallies on a regular basis and seldom misses an opportunity to openly declare his affection for the former President of the United States.
The following are some of the insights that Covington shared with Patrick Bet-David on his political aspirations during a recent conversation that took place on the PBD Podcast (via MMA Fighting):
I do have the desire to enter politics at some point in the future because I want to fight for the things that I believe in. If I am successful, I would like to be a member of Congress, possibly the Senate, or something like. Maybe you could become the governor of Florida. Being the governor of this state would be the fulfillment of my deepest, most cherished desire. [with thanks to Mixed Martial Arts Fighting]
