Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Colby Covington are teammates at American Top Team, but when ‘Chaos’ fights Kamaru Usman at UFC 245 for the title, she will be rooting for Usman.

Why the former strawweight champion will do so is because of how Covington has treated their ATT teammates like Dustin Poirier and Jorge Masvidal.

“No, no focus on dumb people,” Joanna Jedrzejczyk said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show (via BJPENN.com). “Colby is something else. We let him be. We let him be.

“I never wish any fighter to get like hurt, I wish that Usman will beat his ass. I shouldn’t say this because you always should support your people, but Colby is not a friend, he’s just acting weird. He’s an ugly guy,” she continued. “You never talk bad about your teammates, doesn’t matter if you like them or not.”

Recently, Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal had a falling out after being best friends for years. ‘Gamebred’ said it was because ‘Chaos’ failed to pay one of his coaches.

Meanwhile, Covington picked Khabib Nurmagomedov to beat Dustin Poirier and said he couldn’t stuff a takedown. So, according to Joanna Jedrzejczyk, she believes this is all an act and he is trying to be like Conor McGregor.

“He’s acting like he’s Conor McGregor. Trying to show on the video that people open the door for him, that he’s driving fancy cars,” Jedrzejczyk said. “He’s in show guys, he’s in [the show]. He’s a hard worker. I don’t buy it.”

Colby Covington apparently isn’t a fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The L.A. squad lost their chance at reaching the World Series, falling to the Washington Nationals in the National League Division Series (NLDS), and thus being eliminated from the MLB playoffs.

Covington took the opportunity to roast the team and manager Dave Roberts, who “Chaos” noted is against current United States President Donald Trump, who Covington is very supportive of.

#DoNothingDem Dave Roberts blows it again! Trips to the White House are reserved for CHAMPIONS. You won’t ever have to worry about accepting one junior. #BeatLA#WSHvsLAD#MAGA

While Covington enjoys the Dodgers’ defeat, he is also preparing to challenge Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title. The pair will collide in the main event of UFC 245 in December from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Covington is a former interim welterweight champion but was subsequently stripped of that title due to inactivity.

Since, he has racked up a dominant victory over former champion Robbie Lawler, and is now prepared to challenge for the Las Vegas-based promotion’s undisputed title. He’ll face no easy challenge in Usman, however, who comes off of a lopsided win over former champion Tyron Woodley earlier this year to win the division crown.

What do you think about Covington’s insult towards the Dodgers after their playoff loss?

The next UFC welterweight title fight is finally set. Champion Kamaru Usman will make his first career title defense against ex-interim champion Colby Covington. The pair will headline UFC 245 on pay-per-view (PPV) on December 14.

One man who is very familiar with both competitors is former 170-pound king Tyron Woodley. Woodley has fought Usman for five rounds – ultimately losing the welterweight crown to “The Nigerian Nightmare” – and is a former training partner of Covington.

Speaking on his “Hollywood Beatdown” segment for TMZ, Woodley explained why he believes Usman has a slight advantage over “Chaos” in the matchup. (H/T MMA Junkie)

“I think Usman’s scrambling abilities are better than Colby’s as far as once you get to a leg,” Woodley said. “Anytime you get to a single leg versus two legs, it’s always a scramble involved. So when you watch Kamaru Usman – like, my teammate Michael Chandler is his training partner – when you watch those guys scramble, going around, this is high-level scrambling.

“I think Usman has a slight edge that is annoying and frustrating to deal with and if he can’t get space, he may not be able to punch Colby, and that takes his advantage in striking away.”

It’s no secret that Woodley and Covington have a heated rivalry with one another, which hopefully gets settled inside the Octagon one day. However, Woodley gives respect where it’s due, praising Covington for his relentless cardio and motor.

Of course, Woodley notes Covington isn’t one to throw power shots, which likely plays into why he conserves so much gas in his tank.

“I think he really, really has a good motor,” Woodley said. “I think he’s in good shape. But it’s not like he’s in good shape because he’s landing explosive, powerful combinations. He’s not exerting his body, throwing powerful shots. He actually punched like he’s swinging little Ottoman cushions around. But when you really think about it, he never has to explode.”
