UFC President Dana White mentioned that each Covington and Woodley had been in charge for the combat not taking place. Covington responded by saying the UFC and Dana White don’t have the “balls” to launch him. He additionally referred to as the UFC a “fake news reporting machine.” Just lately, UFC welterweight Michael Chiesa was interviewed on the “Pull No Punches” podcast.

“I think Colby should have tried to talk more with Dana and management before he went public,” Chiesa mentioned. “You don’t ever have to again all the way down to your boss… They don’t seem to be our employers, they’re contracting us.
“We’re in a position where collective bargaining and the Ali Act would be something, but that is out of sight for us. We need to look at the situation as it is.”
