Sergei Belski / USA TODAY Sports

Joanna Jedrzejczyk won't talk to her teammate Colby Covington until she gets an apology.

Covington recently returned to training at American Top Team in Florida following his December loss to Kamaru Usman. "Chaos" is known for his outspokenness and has had rifts with teammates, including Jorge Masvidal and Dustin Poirier.

"We got into an argument before my last fight," Jedrzejczyk, who also trains at ATT, said on "Ariel Helwani's MMA Show" Monday. "I don't want to talk to him. He needs to apologize."

The former strawweight titleholder didn't say what the argument was about.

"He has to bow down to the queen and say sorry," Jedrzejczyk said.

"Colby should be more respectful to his teammates and women in general," she added. "He should learn how to say 'hi, sorry, I apologize.' But no. He's getting there."

ATT is one of the biggest camps in MMA and a diverse group of fighters train there. Jedrzejczyk said that not everyone will get along, but teammates should still support each other.

"This is what we do at ATT," she said. "It's an amazing place. ... We are helping each other, we all respect each other."

Jedrzejczyk is scheduled to fight strawweight champion Zhang Weili at UFC 248 on March 7 in Las Vegas.
