Dos Anjos thinks that Covington, who is 6-1 in the UFC, is just trying to make a name for himself, so he shut him down in a brief exchange on twitter.
@RdosAnjosMMA your on a 2 fight losing streak at a lower weight class. You ain't jumping to front of 170 ahead of me without a fight— Colby Covington (@ColbyCovMMA) March 13, 2017
@ColbyCovMMA hey man, I had to google your name to know how you are. Keep begging.— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) March 14, 2017
Sometime after, Covington once again took to social media to call out Dos Anjos, this time, by what seems to be an incredibly time consuming joke about the former champion and almost every major star in the UFC roster.
On his long and elaborate joke, he claims to have accessed the former champion’s emails which shows dialog with dozens of UFC fighters and personalities.
Covington is 11-1 overall in his MMA career, winning his last 3 bouts in the UFC. While it may be doubtful that he lands this marquee match up, I can’t really blame the talented ATT product for taking his shot.
