Colby Covington went toe-to-toe with Kamaru Usman in the main event at UFC 245 last December, but failed to capture the UFC Welterweight title after being stopped in the 5th round.
After action packed 4 rounds, a lot of MMA fans and analysts had the two fighters tied up 2-2 going into the 5th and final round.
However, in the final round of this championship fight it was ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ who ultimately put ‘Chaos’ away via TKO.
The main event contest was filled with so much emotion that following the result, a lot of fans – including some celebrities, didn’t hold back to take shots at the controversial Welterweight star, Colby Covington.
In particular, it was the famous New York rapper 50 Cent and Hollywood actress Rosie O’Donnell, who both took to Twitter comment on Covington’s loss.
“Before the fight he promised to present the championship belt to donald trump and mocked his adversary’s African heritage, asking: “What has his family ever done for America beside serve in the Federal Penitentiary?” Enjoy the broken jaw, you racist piece of sh*t.”
50 Cent called Covington a “racist piece of sh*t”, while Rosie mocked the Welterweight challenger for limping out with a broken jaw.
In a recent interview with MMAFighting, Colby Covington blasted 50 Cent and Rosie O’Donnell for their comments.
“50 Cent? The guy was hit eight times and that’s his claim to fame ‘oh I was hit eight times and that couldn’t put me down’. If he gets hit one time by me, he’ll never get back up,” Covington said. “There’s one guy who got his jaw wired shut and it wasn’t me. It was 50 Cent. He’s a little b*tch. I want to fight 50 Cent next. I think we should do a celebrity charity boxing match. I’ll put up $1 million of my dollars and it’s going to go straight to the troops. He’s a broke b*tch so he probably doesn’t have a million dollars but he can go as one of his f*cking sponsors to put it up and we can do this.”
Colby Covington also talked about Rosie O’Donnell:
“Rosie O’Donnell? What the fck has Rosie O’Donnell ever done?” Covington said. “She’s losing 10-8 rounds to obesity. She’s losing 10-8 rounds to Donald Trump on fcking Twitter. Who is she to talk about Colby “Chaos” Covington? She’s never fcking fought. She hasn’t done sh*t!
The only thing she’s fighting for are all the women who are leaving her because they’re trying to come to me and they’re sweating me on Instagram. So f*ck Rosie O’Donnell, that fat pig.”
Colby Covington has been clear that he wants to rematch Kamaru Usman before the end of 2020.
