Colby Covington explains reason for Matt Hughes train taunt, brands critics 'snowflakes'

Brendan Schaub Colby Covington's Controversial Post-Fight Interview
Shannon Reynolds | 05 August, 2019, 04:05

Colby Covington holds the claim of the only UFC fighter to ever visit the White House.

"Doesn't matter if it's the Trump train or the Colby train, stay out the way".

"Not at all", Covington said when asked if he felt his comments crossed the line. Covington was smothering Lawler with his pressure in the stand-up and on the ground and didn't give him a second to breathe, he was constantly going forward.

Colby is so sloppy i thought I was watching ufc 1 with those choke attempts if we fought the cops couldn't even save him from the beating i would put on his bitch ass. "He just appreciates how much I do".

Sticking to his pro-Donald Trump schtick, Covington then referred to his critics by a term often used by the president. He threw 541 attempted strikes during the match, setting a new UFC record, ESPN reported. The pace of the entire fight was heavily dictated by Covington.

Anthony would eventually get shipped to the Bulls before being subsequently let go without appearing in a single game for Chicago. What can I do to fix this?' But then he had in mind that he wanted to come talk to me, too, about releasing me and letting me go.

"Chaos" landed a lot of clean strikes, secured many takedowns, and controlled the match nearly all the time.

Donald Trump dug up a year-old tweet from Covington - which showed him with the president in the Oval Office wearing a MAGA hat - on Saturday afternoon and quote-tweeted it, wishing Covington luck in his bout with Robbie Lawler at UFC Newark. Lawler made 169 attempted strikes and landed only 77 of them.

"It's been a while since I actually felt good moving around, bouncing around, take down defense was pretty good, getting back up was pretty good", Lawler said. Covington said in another post-fight interview that he did not get to go through a full training camp and had only four weeks to prepare for the fight. Another obstacle was an injury to his eyelid he sustained while training, resulting in a curbed regimen, Colby said on ESPN MMA. The victor of that fight gets the title shot against Usman.

Covington had some problems saying where he wanted to fight Usman, mispronouncing Madison Square Garden. Usman is on a 10-fight win streak, according to Sherdog. A victory would give Covington the official welterweight championship belt.
