Controversial UFC fighters Colby Covington and Jon Jones share quite a deep history that dates back in their collegiate wrestling years. Over the past few months, the two men have been bickering, while airing out some of their dirty laundry in the process.
During a recent interview with RT Sport, “Bones” once again had some words for his former college roommate.
“Man, he is such an interesting character,” Jones said (transcript via MMA Fighting). “One thing I’ll say about him that I wish people realized was how severe of a liar he is. He is an extraordinary liar. He reminds me a lot of Chael Sonnen, how he could say one thing and just tell the fans a bold-faced lie.”
“He lies about things that aren’t even really important. I can see you lying if it’s life or death, or if it’s really going to be a detriment to your career or something, but he just makes up lies.”
“I really feel sorry for him to be that type of person. I really feel sorry for him. I don’t know if that is fixable.”
Covington has been outspoken about his support for President Donald Trump, whom he was able to meet with along with UFC president Dana White. It is the one positive thing that Jones had to say about “Chaos.”
“I was happy for him that he got to meet the president,” Jones said of Covington. “I’m a big fan of the law of attraction where people say, ‘Hey, I’m going to do this,’ and they actually do it. Him saying that ‘I’m going to meet Donald Trump and I’m going to the White House’ and it actually happening. I love that type of stuff.”
