Say what you will about the heel personal that has been embraced by Colby Covington in recent years, but it has certainly brought him a lot of attention.

Covington has drawn criticism from all quarters of the mixed martial arts world for the brash persona which he used en route to an ultimately unsuccessful UFC title shot late last year and it has caused some headaches with regard to his status at the American Top Team training centre in which he has been a member for the majority of his top-level career thus far.

Jorge Masvidal has an obvious problem with Covington, as does another ATT member in Dustin Poirier and now you can add former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk to the mix.

“He’s a prick. I don’t care about this guy. He doesn’t know how to act. He’s not a real man,” she said to TMZ Sport days out from his world title challenge to China’s Zhang Weili in Las Vegas this weekend.
