WWE Champion Drew McIntyre Takes Nasty Dig At Colby Covington, Sparks Another UFC-WWE War

UFC vs WWE: WWE champion Drew McIntyre and UFC fighter Colby Covington has sparked an interesting rivalry with each other via Twitter. Here's a look at it.


UFC fighter Colby Covington recently revealed that he wants to compete in the WWE by next year and wants to fight the new WWE champion Drew McIntyre inside the ring. While it may sound absurd to a lot of combat sports fans, rumours that Colby Covington is expected to hang up his gloves from MMA after a devastating loss to Kamaru Usman, have gathered pace. However, Colby Covington later revealed that though he wants to fight Kamaru Usman again, but in the meantime, he also notified many about his interest in the WWE. The announcement did not go well with Drew McIntyre as he went on to slam the UFC fighter on Twitter.
