Last week former interim champion Colby Covington defeated Robbie Lawler via unanimous decision (50-44, 50-45, 50-45) at the Prudential Center in a dominating fashion at UFC on ESPN 5 event which took place in Newark, NJ.

Immediately after the fight, Covington started his verbal antics which included taking a dig at former champion Matt Hughes.

Tyron Woodley slams Colby Covington over 'disgraceful' Matt Hughes comments - Woodley

Hey, let’s talk about the lesson we learned tonight,” Covington said. “It’s a strong lesson that Robbie should have learned from his good buddy Matt Hughes. You stay off the tracks when the train is coming through, junior. Don’t matter if it’s the Trump train or the Colby train. Get out the way.” (H/T – The Athletic)

Those comments have not sat well with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley who said that Covington’s comments were disgraceful.

It was a disgrace and he needs to do a public apology for what he said about Matt Hughes,” Woodley told TMZ. “… That ain’t funny. That ain’t a joke. He’s blessed to even be here – no matter how he got on the tracks. To joke around about Matt Hughes. To use the Brazilian culture. To use all of these different things. To make a mockery. He’s going to find himself in a way worse situation than an ass whooping in the cage. He needs to find a line and draw it.

You can be completely obnoxious, but when you get to those points where you’re touching on issues that are not funny. Talking about people’s nationalities, talking about people’s significant others – you’re going to get hurt.” (H/T – MMAJunkie.com)
