UFC welterweights Mike Perry and Colby Covington have been going at it for a while now. After his win over Alex Oliveira last April at UFC Fort Lauderdale, “Platinum” turned his attention back to Covington, promising nasty things.

It did take some time for “Chaos” to fire back, and he did so during a recent episode of BJPenn.com Radio.

“If Mike Perry can win two fights in a row he’s getting an immediate title shot. I will defend my title against him,” Covington said to host Jason Kindschy. “I know he can’t count to as high as two and I know he’s probably not going to win two fights row.

“If Mike Perry, that dumb motherf—ng cousin f—r, sheep lover, horse-face lover motherf—r can win two fights in a row, Jason, he’s getting an immediate title shot. Winning two fights for a jobber who’s going to be fighting Indian casinos next year is going to be really tough for him.

“I don’t see it happening, but I wish him the best,” he added. “I really do hope he wins another fight so I can literally break his jaw and send him packing. He’ll never fight again. I promise you that.”

Currently ranked number two in the official welterweight rankings, Covington is set to challenge Kamaru Usman for the 170-pound title, which has yet to be finalized. According to American Top Team owner and Covington’s manager Dan Lambert, they are simply waiting for the champion to agree and sign the contract.
