UFC 245 is all set to take place this weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and it will feature a highly anticipated bout between UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and former interim champion Colby Covington.

Ahead of the fight, there is a lot of trash-talking going on between both the fighters with Colby being the most vocal amongst the two. He had said that he is going to knock Usman out inside three rounds and cripple him when they meet inside the Octagon.

He has promoted himself as the ultra-nationalist trump supporter and has on numerous occasions claimed that he is Donald Trump’s favourite fighter. He has also over the past few months burned bridges with his teammates at American Top Team.

This has resulted in many fans disliking him and it has reached to a point where fans from around the world have requested Kamaru Usman to kill Covington.

Oh my God,” Usman said. “I would say in the last six months, I’ve been to maybe six countries — and it’s so surreal to me that I’m in the mall in Dubai, and random people run up to me. ‘Oh my God, I can’t wait for you to kill this guy.’ I’m in Abu Dhabi. ‘I can’t wait for you to kill this guy.’ I’m in the Dominican Republic. People are running up. ‘I can’t wait for you smash this guy.’ They can’t even speak English, but they know. ‘I can’t wait for you to kill this guy.’

So many veterans, so many troops in my DMs, in my messages, sending me messages. ‘This idiot doesn’t represent us. We can’t wait for you to kick his ass.’ So many. Just because you’re barking and you’re hiding behind fake patriotism and saying, ‘Oh, I fight for the troops, and I fight for this, I fight for that’ — that doesn’t necessarily mean it. He’s already come out and said this is a gimmick, so how am I supposed to believe anything you say? How are they supposed to believe anything that you say? And for me, I fight for the real.

It’s my job to go in there and humble him.” (H/T – The Athletic)
