UFC fighter Colby Covington isn’t happy that he isn’t getting a shot at the welterweight title this weekend in the co-main event at UFC 235. So he did what anyone would do, he tracked down UFC President Dana White, while he was gambling, and asked him why he wasn’t getting a shot at the title.
To make things more authentic, Covington brought the interim welterweight belt he was stripped of with him and went live on Instagram.

White initially seemed pleasantly surprised to see Covington. His attitude quickly changed when he realized Covington was videoing the confrontation.
Covington didn’t let being shutdown by White slow him down. He decided to take things outside of the casino and record a video threatening to do damage to White’s car.

That might be one way to get some attention, but it probably isn’t the best move if you’re trying to get a title fight. Fighting for title on Saturday night will be Tyron Woodley and Kamaru Usman. Which should make for a decent fight leading up to the main event, where Jon Jones and his trace amounts of steroids defend his title against Anthony Smith.
