Drew McIntyre Responds To Colby Covington’s Recent Call-Out (Video)

During a recent interview with ESPN’s Arda Ocal, Drew McIntyre reacted to Colby Covington’s recent call-out, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On how Colby Covington would fare in WWE: “I’m sure he’d do well. The problem is, he challenged me. And I like the fact that he’s aimed high. I talked about this on a radio show last week, I guess he was on the show. He called me out, he said that, you know, ‘Maybe WWE wouldn’t sanction the match, but I would fight Drew McIntyre.’ And I think about it like this. One, okay, if we’re not doing it WWE. In WWE, I could beat Brock Lesnar in five minutes in the main event of WrestleMania. How would he do in an MMA fight with Brock Lesnar? Probably not very good.”

On being willing to take the unsanctioned fight: “So if he wants this unsanctioned fight outside of WWE, I’m willing to fight him in a bar or something. There’s a reason there’s different weight classes [in the UFC]. I’m about 100 pounds heavier than the guy, I’m a foot taller than the guy. I’m willing to have an actual fight with him if he wants an unsanctioned fight. It’ll put more eyes on the product — perfectly happy with me. I’ll smash his head in, I’ll shut him up. I’ll break his jaw like [Kamaru] Usman did, and then more people watch WWE. So, Colby, I’ll fight you, mate. No title shot though, that’s reserved for WWE Superstars.”
