Last night there were some serious shots fired between UFC fighters Colby Covington and Cathal Pendred on twitter. The words began as Covington was obviously not impressed by Pendred’s response to all who believed he lost his fight against Sean Spencer.
Pendred didn’t respond initially and that, along with some fans, seemingly spurned the American on to keep tweeting at the Irishman.
Enough was enough and this was the tweet that forced Pendred to respond.
Alan’s Angle: My guess is that many see Pendred as an easy scalp, even though the Irishman is 3-0 in the UFC his performances haven’t been all too impressive. He has underperformed but knowing the welterweight it is very possible that he can begin to find his feet and start performing to his capabilities.
Also if you are wondering who Colby Covington is he is undefeated at 7-0 and has competed twice in the UFC wining both of his fights by submission late last year. He might be doing this to gain some exposure (sure I am writing about this). There has been talk that Pendred will once again square off against Sean Spencer so a potential fight with Covington might take a while if it ever happens.
