Daniel Cormier doesn’t assume Colby Covington is able to be choosy by way of his subsequent battle.

Covington and Ian Machado Garry have been angling to battle one another, however Covington insists he by no means acquired an official battle supply from the UFC. Covington mentioned the ship has sailed on Garry, and known as out Belal Muhammad, accusing him of sitting on his rating.

Thursday, nonetheless, UFC CEO Dana White introduced Muhammad is about for a UFC 304 welterweight title problem towards champion Leon Edwards on July 27 in Manchester, England.

Covington, a multi-time title challenger, appeared lackluster in his title-fight loss to Edwards at UFC 296 after he broke his foot early. Cormier says Covington (17-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) now must take a step again.

“Colby Covington said that he feels like Belal Muhammad is sitting on his ranking and doesn’t deserve a title fight,” Cormier mentioned on his YouTube channel. “I like Colby. I believe Colby’s cool. I believe he’s a superb dude. I believe he’s superb. But come on, Colby. Come on, brother. Colby can’t say or attempt to decide who will get a title battle proper now due to the best way he misplaced to Leon Edwards and the best way he fought. It looks like he’s unwilling to battle Ian Garry.

“I think he should maybe step back and just not really say much at all until another fight comes his way. I don’t know what the hesitance is to fighting Ian Garry for Colby Covington. I don’t know if he just doesn’t want to fight back in the rankings. But I think he needs to recognize that in this situation, that’s kind of what he’s going to get right now because of the way that he lost that last fight. He didn’t fight well.”

Former interim champion Covington has break up his previous six octagon appearances with title losses to Kamaru Usman twice and, most just lately, Edwards.
