Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington squared off ahead of #UFC268 and it got heated!!
Colby Covington has accused the welterweight champion of using performance-enhancing drugs on multiple occasions. In a recent interview with Kevin Iole for Yahoo! Sports, ‘Chaos’ said:
“So, we know his name is ‘Marty Juiceman’ now. He’s the CEO of EPO. And, you know, there’s a reason there’s a chemical imbalance. You can see the pimples all over his back, all over his face, you know. Dude, you’re a 36-year-old man. You think you’re gonna have a chemical imbalance in your age, like you’re going through puberty in your mid-30s? So, you know, I do think he s**ks, though. I think he’s a cheater. I would’ve finished him in that first fight if he didn’t get a fake timeout.”
