Colby Covington and Dustin Poirier will have a rematch at UFC 233 after the main event was scrapped.
Colby Covington continues his savage attack on Dustin Poirier. The UFC is looking to put the fight together in December and has already announced that it will be a five round non-title fight.
Dustin Poirier walks out of the octagon after losing to Charles Oliveira at UFC 269 in December 2021.
If Colby Covington is paired up with Dustin Poirier for his next UFC fight, he believes he can set a “Guinness World Record.”
Covington has been promoting a bout with either “The Diamond” or Israel Adesanya, the UFC middleweight champion.
Poirier “needs” to fight Covington, according to Covington, because of the amount of trash talking “Chaos” has done. If Poirier declines to fight, Covington will proclaim himself the winner through verbal submission, setting a new UFC record for the quickest victory.
According to MMA Weekly, Covington stated:
The most important thing about Dustin Poirier is that if he wants to retain his respect and dignity, he has to fight me. I’ve called out his wife, his family, his team, and his friends, because, man, I’ve called out his wife, his family, his team, and his friends. Man, if you have any self-respect, you must come and give it your all. Dustin, be a risk-taker. But if you don’t try, folks, this is going to be another championship for me — 0 seconds tapout in the first round of the UFC. This will be the quickest submission in the history of the UFC. Dustin didn’t even attempt, therefore this will go down in history as a Guinness World Record. In the opening round of the UFC, he received 0 seconds and tapped out a verbal submission. So, guys, we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll have to wait and watch whether he makes an attempt.

Covington’s verbal assault on Poirier continued.
Poirier is presently rated No. 2 in the UFC’s lightweight class, and as a professional mixed martial artist, he has never faced anybody heavier than that. He has, however, considered moving to welterweight. And, if he wants to compete for the 170-pound championship, defeating Covington would put him on the fast road.
Covington, on the other hand, feels Poirier is too “scared” to fight. He said, “
This is the battle that must be fought. This is something that the fans want to happen. What is it that frightens him so much? I was under the impression that he was a terrific Louisiana f***** mobster who had knocked someone out. Every day, he’ll have to look in the mirror and say, “Man, I’m a f***** coward.” I dodged Colby Chaos Covington because I was terrified of him, and I didn’t show any respect for my family or my wife. His ego, man, is bigger than his love for his family. You’ve got to come out here and give it your all. You’ve got to go out there and attempt to put it down. You’re not a guy if you’re not a man. You’re a jerk. You’re a wimp. So I’d feel horrible having to look in the mirror every morning and think, “Damn, I’m a coward.” I failed to defend my family, my wife, my children, my team, or my buddy. All of these individuals. For him, it’s an L-L. It’s a no-win scenario. Either he loses and shows up, or he loses and gets his a** kicked. He already knows what’s going to happen. At the very least, try. Dustin, you’ve got to give it your all. But if he doesn’t attempt, it’ll be the first-ever zero-seconds tapout in UFC history. And he knows he’s a b**** for letting his family and team down, but he’s still a coward b****, and he’ll have to deal with it for the rest of his life.

Covington is victorious. Earlier this month, Jorge Masvidal
GettyDuring UFC 272 at T-Mobile Arena on March 5, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Colby Covington (L) and Jorge Masvidal clash in their welterweight bout.
Covington is coming off a significant win. He fought Jorge Masvidal, another of his comrades, in the UFC 272 main event earlier this month.
The fight lasted five rounds, but Chaos had the upper hand for the most of the time and won a unanimous decision. Despite being the No. 1 rated fighter at 170 pounds, Covington has lost two bouts against champion Kamaru Usman, so he’ll have to keep fighting to get another championship shot against “The Nigerian Nightmare.”
