Covington spoke on the Eurobash podcast and said there was never a problem between the two fighters but suggests Jedrzejczyk made advances towards him and he rejected her. According to the former welterweight title challenger this is the reason why Jedrzejczyk is upset with him.
“There was never a problem, I never said anything about Joanna, I never looked at her wrong or anything. One day she came into the gym and started screaming, ‘Colby this and that, I hate you’ and I’m like, ‘What the fuck? What’s your issue?’ I know last week she tried to flirt with me, and I wasn’t giving her the time of day because, let’s be honest, I have standards, and she just doesn’t fit those standards. She’s not a seven-and-a-half and up, and I only message seven-and-a-halves or up. So, she got her feelings a little hurt. The raw American steel and twisted sex appeal of Colby Covington didn’t want to take her on a date, didn’t want to flirt with her and didn’t have any interest, because I’m too busy getting dimes and supermodels to waste my time on some ugly boobie-woman from Poland or whatever.”
Covington doubled down on the attack towards the Polish star suggesting she’s not a good person and believes she is better than others.
“She wants to come and hate me and make me look like the bad guy, but everyone knows that Joanna is not a good person. She believes in her own hype; she thinks she’s better than life. Nobody is better than anybody, I don’t care what your title is, or how much money you have. It doesn’t mean that you’re better than anybody.”
Jedrzejczyk recently asked Covington to apologise for the way he has spoken about and treated his teammates recently and Covington suggests he did apologise. Although it doesn’t exactly seem sincere.
“I did apologise to her; she asked for one, so I gave it. I gave it a week before her title fight. I said, ‘Joanna, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you have to get your face rearranged, and we’re all going to make a lot of money at mybookie.ag and that’s exactly what happened!’ And it’s still rearranged. I don’t know if you saw the picture the other day, that thing is still black and blue. That thing looks nasty man. That girl should probably never come back to fighting again.”
