Colby Covington doubles down: ‘I apologise to any filthy animal I offended’

Don’t expect Colby Covington to walk back his comments from Sao Paulo

By Oscar Willis - 29 Oct 2017

Colby Covington isn’t backing down from his post-fight comments he made in Brazil.

The up-and-coming welterweight stunned viewers of UFC Sao Paulo last night, after handily defeating Demian Maia in front of an irritated Brazilian crowd. That irritation quickly turned to anger once Covington got the microphone.

“Brazil, you’re a dump,” he said, post-fight. “All you filthy animals suck.”

Unsurprisingly, the crowd were furious, throwing bottles at Covington as he left the cage. Today, he showed no signs of being sorry.
