Colby Covington is holding nothing back in his criticism of Dana white over not getting a welterweight title shot. Covington spoke with MMAjunkie and said that he doesn’t care if the UFC releases him, calling White a man with “no morals or values” and a man who was just “Lorenzo [Fertitta]’s little check boy” before the UFC got sold.

Highlights from the interview are below:

On not getting a title shot: “Dana White’s out in the media saying ‘Colby’s not taking the fights, we don’t allow that in the UFC. He can go fight somewhere else.’ So what I’m saying is, OK, Dana. Let’s see if you’re a man of your balls. Let’s see if you’re a man of your word. Let’s see if you can stick to what you say. You said you don’t allow that in the UFC? All right. I’m testing you, mother(expletive). Let’s see how big your balls are. Release me, b—h.”

On Tyron Woodley’s welterweight title defense against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235: “Woodley’s going to smoke him. Usman’s a scrub, and he shouldn’t even be in that position. He hasn’t even beaten anyone in the top 10 coming off a win. His only ranked wins are against guys coming off losses – and guys coming off losses that I already took their souls and left them (expletive) bloody and beaten and they had no will to fight anymore. He’s got a padded record. He shouldn’t even be in the position. But he’s talked his way up. He sucked off some people at the UFC and played that little role, so good for him – he gets to leapfrog the No. 1 fighter in the world. But let’s make it clear that he’ll never be the No. 1 fighter in the world because he’ll never beat me and, neither will either one of those scrubs. I’m the No. 1 fighter in the world and nobody’s (expletive) stopping me.”

On White: “I don’t really have a relationship with Dana White, and I don’t give a (expletive) about him. He’s cashing out – he made all the money off the fans, all the fans that built this sport, and they sold for $4 billion. And the reason the sport even is what it is is because of Lorenzo. So Dana hasn’t even done anything – he (was) just Lorenzo’s little check boy. He holds his coat for him and stuff. Dana’s already cashed out – he got all that money and he let it get to his head. He’s a piece of (expletive) person and he has no morals or values.”
