If Colby Covington’s tirade in Brazil wasn’t enough, things just got worse and he and former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum got into an altercation in Sydney, Australia.
A video show Werdum throwing a boomerang which appears to hit Covington in the face.
Covington states that Werdum punched in the face.
“Look at this fcking clown! You’re a fcking clown, Fabricio Werdum!” Covington says. “You’re a filth … yeah, what’s up? You just punched me in the face! You wanna come punch me again, btch! What? What? Yeah, you think you’re so tough! Look at you, fcking f*****! That’s right! You’re a little btch! What? I’m gonna see you soon! I’m gonna see you soon, motherfcker! You’re old, motherf*cker! You ain’t shit!”
“Fck Brazil. Fck Fabricio Werdum. Little btch ass,” Covington says. “Fck Brazil. A bunch of filthy animals. And they wonder why they get talked to like that. Because they’re a bunch of animals.”
The UFC then released the following statement:
“UFC was made aware of the altercation between Fabricio Werdum and Colby Covington at the organization’s host hotel in Sydney, Australia,” the statement read. “The organization will conduct a full investigation to determine if the Athlete Conduct Policy was violated before taking any further action on this matter.”
Last month Covington created buzz when he bashed Brazilians on the microphone following his unanimous decision win over Demian Maia.
The UFC is in Sydney for UFC Fight Night 121. Werdum faces Marcin Tybura in the main event.
