UFC welterweight star Colby Covington is known to get nasty outside of the cage. This time, ‘Chaos’ was throwing a jab at former roommate – Jon Jones.
Both Covington and Jones have been involved in various social media spats through the years with Jones having accused Covington of being a “pathological liar” and making more of their time as roommates at Iowa Central Community College.
And while Jones deleted his public announcement – Covington hasn’t shied away from his.

This came after Jones took to Twitter to tell his followers that he had a split with former fiancée Jessie Moses following a battery domestic violence accusation against Jones a few months ago on the night of Jones’ induction to UFC Hall of Fame. The two were reportedly engaged for roughly 17 years.
In the now-deleted tweet, ‘Bones’ also added that Moses had made it clear that the split is for good, and told his haters to be joyful as he’s currently “feel like sh*t”.
Bodycam footage of Jones’ arrest also surfaced recently. It shows a disturbing scene – he is crying, whining and headbutting a police vehicle while shouting clearly intoxicated.
“Tremendous news. Guess you finally knocked some sense into her @johnnybones” Covington wrote on his Twitter.
Jones has yet to issue any reply or comment regarding Covington’s tweet.
Despite being infamous for his villainous persona in the UFC, some fans think that the Covington took things a bit too far by kicking Jones while he’s down.
Covington will headline UFC 272 in a grudge match against former teammate and heated rival Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal on March 5. The co-main event will be former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos clashing against rising lightweight contender Rafael ‘Ataman’ Fiziev.
