Colby Covington Presents Rivals with 'Tap' and 'Nap' Awards for 2021

Colby Covington, the No. 1 welterweight in the UFC, celebrated the end of the year by presenting awards to two of his opponents.

"Chaos" is coming off a failed title defense at UFC 268 in November 2021, losing a unanimous decision to 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman.

Covington, on the other hand, remains as important as ever in the division.

He's frequently compared to ex-teammates Jorge Masvidal and Dustin Poirier as a potential opponent.

Covington has a grudge against both Masvidal and "The Diamond," and recently took a shot at both of them while speaking with The Schmo.

He gave "Gamebred" his 2021 "nap" of the year award, referring to Masvidal's vicious knockout by Usman at UFC 261 in April 2021.

He also bestowed the "tap" of the year award on Poirier.

Poirier faced UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira last weekend at UFC 269, but he was submitted in the third round by a rear-naked choke.

Covington went after Poirier first before moving on to Masvidal.

Covington said via Middle Easy, "We got two year-end awards here today."

"We won the tap trophy and the nap trophy," says the team.

Dustin Soyrier, Louisiana swamp trash, takes home the tap trophy.

Dustin, congrats on your tap.

"I mean, there were a lot of great taps this year, but the way you quit and put your head on the mat and got tapped out like the little b**** you are was incredible."

So, all of your rash statements about it being on sight, this and that, name the sight, b****.

"Let's do this, man. Bring your Jezebel of a wife, bring that little kid you use as a prop, and let's run this. Stop defrauding people with your fake charity, and let's fight, man. You have to be held accountable."

"We have the nap award, which is a very prestigious award because not many people get to take a nap in the Octagon. This goes to 'Street Judas,' the frail guy, Jorge Masvidal. You're welcome, 'Street Judas,' you got the nap award."

After Chaos defeated former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in September 2020, several reports surfaced about Masvidal and Covington being considered as coaches for the "Ultimate Fighter" reboot.

The plan was for the two to coach opposite each other during the season and then fight afterward.

It would have been fantastic theater to watch, as the two have a lot of animosity toward each other and both know how to start a fight.

Masvidal chose to wait for a rematch against Usman, so the coaching stint and bout never took place.

With both fighters coming off losses to "The Nigerian Nightmare," it appears that the time has come to pit the two adversaries against one another.
