Dustin Poirier has a lot of people paying attention to his next move, especially after beating Conor McGregor at UFC 264. Colby Covington wants to be first in line and he’s willing to place a big stake on things.

While speaking to Fanatics View, Covington pitched the idea of fighting Dustin Poirier and handling some unfinished business. He also made a declaration that if Poirier doesn’t fight him then Covington is the real father of Poirier and wife Jolie’s daughter, Parker. That is, if Poirier declines the fight.

“This is a personal rivalry, James. This isn’t like I’m trying to pick on someone and there’s no narrative to the fight,” Covington explained. “Man, this guy, we go back 10 years training together. And he said some things to me in the gym, I’ve said some things to him. There’s deep, deep, deep personal issues with this drama and with this beef. And I just hope they get settled in the Octagon someday.”

“But if they don’t, then the fans get to know who daddy is, and they get to know that I’m really Parker’s daddy. And it’s not Dustin who’s Parker’s daddy. I’m Parker’s daddy. And I’m Jolie’s husband.”

We’re not sure why Jolie Poirier keeps getting into the line of fire with her husband’s fights. She also took several shots from Conor McGregor in recent memory as Notorious claimed that she slid into his DMs. He also threatened to murder both of them following his loss at UFC 264.
