UFC’s Colby Covington calls AEW a second-tier promotion, might wrestle one day for WWE (Video)

Hey Colby Covington, tell us how you really feel?

While getting ready for his UFC 268 fight over the week against Kamaru Usman, Covington was asked about AEW with some of his former colleagues working with the promotion; Dan Lambert, Junior Dos Santos and Andrei Arlovski, Covington took a massive shot at AEW.

If Covington is ever in need of work and wants to become a professional wrestler, he may not be calling Tony Khan for a job anytime soon. Or ever.

Speaking of losers, Covington did lose the fight at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night to Usman by unanimous decision.
