UFC welterweight contender Michael Chiesa wants a piece of Colby Covington.
Chiesa called out the former interim champion after his main-event win over Neil Magny on Wednesday. Covington is an avid supporter of former U.S. President Donald Trump, who left office earlier Wednesday following a November defeat to Joe Biden.
“The election is over,” Chiesa said in his postfight interview. “Colby Covington, your shtick is done. I want you next, boy.”
Chiesa, the No. 8-ranked welterweight, extended his winning streak to four with a lopsided victory over the ninth-ranked Magny. “Maverick” is undefeated in the welterweight division.
Covington is coming off a dominant triumph over former champ Tyron Woodley this past September.
