Colby Covington threw shade at Jon Jones, and Anthony Smith shut it down quickly

Messages recommandés

When UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ latest drug test results showed trace amounts of the M3 metabolite for oral turinabol last month, Anthony Smith made one thing perfectly clear.

“I truly don’t care,” he tweeted that night.

He truly means that, too.

The latest evidence of Smith’s nonchalant attitude toward Jones’ shady past with steroids, which continues to be an issue in the lead-up to their UFC 235 fight, came Wednesday night. Here’s what happened.

Standard move, the UFC tweeted a video hyping the Jones vs. Smith headliner on March 2 being 17 days away.

1⃣7⃣ DAYS!

Who showed up in the replies throwing shade at Jones for his history with performance-enhancing drugs? None other than the troll king himself, Colby Covington, who tweeted the kind of snark you’d expect from him.

Hey @JonnyBones. Nobody’s looking. Go snort a few picograms.

This is where Smith butted in from out of nowhere and tweeted a response at Covington.

🙄 its played out, Colby. Its not funny anymore. Stop throwing shade at my fight. Also, I heard you have a issue with me getting a title fight… next time I see you, we should talk about that. Or you gonna tuck your tail and hide in the corner of the gym like you did in Chicago?

I’m not entirely sure what the latter part of that tweet is referencing with a previous encounter between them in Chicago. But as far as Smith telling Covington to “stop throwing shade at my fight,” it’s clear Smith wants everything related to his first title shot to focus on the actual fight and nothing else.

And for that, Smith deserves to be commended.
