"He'd come home and he'd yell at me, "Oh what the f*** are you doing Colby, do the dishes" and he would just like freak out".
If there was a polar opposite to Waterson in the UFC, it's interim welterweight title contender Colby Covington, who has built a reputation on finding a way to get under the skin of just about every athlete on the roster while simultaneously staking his claim as one of the best fighters in his division.
However, McGregor statement in the Social Media all but confirms the report from Journalist Ariel Helwanim who reported that both Irish and the Brazilian could have competed for a third belt, a Interim Welterweight. So "RDA" took a fight this week instead - and now the champ says he wants to go in early August - but not against dos Anjos.
A foot injury pushed Dos Anjos to immediately withdraw from the contest and McGregor will go on to fight nearly unexpected Nate Diaz in a Welterweight bout.
This is the first time an official source had confirmed about this proposed fight and it was popularly assumed that Conor was to fight the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov next. "That's why I took the fight".

"I kind of want to legitimately clean the division", the 36-year-old told MMA Junkie. When it's all said and done, I did everything I could do there.
UFC 225 takes place Saturday at United Center in Chicago, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Dos Anjos managed to make his way back to his feet and eventually shook off the ultra-aggressive Covington, albeit it for a few moments before the American Top Team product put him back up against the cage. I get it - everybody wants to make some money, everybody wants to get big fights. "And I'm sure I'm going to win, and I'll fight (Woodley) later on".
