The nickname ‘Chaos’ rightfully suits the interim welterweight title challenger Colby Covington. There is no brainer in the fact that Colby Covington has established himself as a ‘bad guy’ of the UFC. Obviously he has stacked up an impressive 8-1 record with four finishes but his controversial remarks gave him the extra media attention.
He infamously called the country of Brazil a ‘dump’ and associated Brazilian fans with ‘filthy animals’ in his post-fight interview after defeating Maia. He has picked up verbal fights against fighters like Tyron Woodley, Rafael Dos Anjos, Kamaru Usman, Mike Perry, Derek Brunson, Sam Alvey, Chase Sherman, Ben Saunders, Fabricio Werdum, analyst Kenny Florian, Darren Till and many others. Covington however thinks mocking fighters and fans is helping him to improve his brand in the community.
“I’m good for business. I’m the super villain of this division. I’m the super villain of the whole entire UFC,” Covington said. “They’re starting to realize my worth. I’m the most notable fighter right now. Everybody wants to watch me. Whether they want to see me lose or win, it’s all the same f–king thing.
“They’re all going to be tuning in on June 9 on pay-per-view to watch me put an ass whooping on that little Franken-nerd RDA. I’m going to leave RDA motionless in the Octagon and there will be no question I’m the undisputed welterweight champion of the world.”
“He’s got no chance and the whole world is going to find out who is the greatest welterweight of all time and that’s Colby “Chaos” Covington,” he said.
“I can’t wait to go takeover Chicago. The Bulls, they’ve been sucking lately and the Bears, that team is trash so they’re going to get a championship caliber fighter when I come to the city.”
