Jones also took to Twitter to ask fans to root against Covington in his upcoming title fight opposite dos Anjos this weekend at UFC 225 in Chicago, Illinois.
“Retweet if you’re praying RDA pulls this off tomorrow night.”

This comes after Covington threw some hot charges against Jones saying:
“He just started doing st*roids and always freaking had roid rage,” Covington said on the Jim and Sam Show (transcribed by MMANYTT). “He’d come home and he’d yell at me ‘oh what the f—k are you doing Colby, do the dishes’ and he would just like freak out. I would see this roid rage in his eyes and I would just be like ‘what’s your deal, man?’. Cause he was wrestling at 197 [pounds], he was a national champ in junior college and he was trying to move up and go to heavyweight. So he thought he had to do a cycle of roids and I just lost a lot of respect for him.”
Alexandre Vieira is one of the most exciting up and coming grapplers today under the Brazilian Top Team flag. In 2017, his loop choke submission was chosen as the Submission of the Year by FloGrappling. Alexandre recently put together his Crucifix and Loop Choke 3 volume instructional set. Alexandre brings a modern outlook to some of the sports most devastating, but sometimes ignored positions, the crucifix and the loop choke.
