The next time Dustin Poirier sees Colby Covington at the gym, it could get ugly.

Covington picked Khabib Nurmagomedov to licking his American Top Team teammate at UFC 242, which of course didn’t sit well with Poirier. Moreover, when asked at the post-fighting news meeting if he’d fighting Jorge Masvidal, Poirier took a shot at Covington  by reacting by reacting that he wouldn’t be a sellout like “Chaos.”

Speaking Monday on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show,” Covington continuing to take jabs at Poirier, derisive him for his emotional post-fighting response pursuing his loss to Nurmagomedov.

“I idea they were very distasteful,” Covington said of Poirier’s comments. “I’m not a sellout. I bought in, and he abroach out, and that’s what happened.”

“I had to give the group America’s pick of the week,” Covington added. “I had to give my honorable opinion. I idea this was land of the free and home of the brave. Land of opportunity, state of speech. Sorry I can’t have an opinion. We don’t have the same opinion, and I just obviously knew Khabib was the amended fightinger.”

Poirier took to Instagram to react to Covington, admonitory him astir the next time they transverse paths at the gym.

Covington, who finds himself at odds with the UFC over negotiating tactics, said he hasn’t trained with Poirier in years and made it clear that he’s not in this sport to make friends.
