Covington’s ATT Teammates Turn On Him, Speak Against Him After Controversial Remarks

The crowd for Sao Paulo, Brazil’s UFC Fight Night 119 was in awe after Saturday night’s two big Brazilian competitors suffered tough losses. Derek Brunson put a quick end to the octagon return of Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida by sinking in a knockout victory in the first round of their main event match up. Beyond that, Colby Covington entered a bloody war with Brazil’s own Demian Maia. In the end, Covington earned a unanimous decision victory over the Brazilian. Of course, things did not end their for Covington.

In his post-fight interview, Covington referred to Brazil as a “dump” and the country’s citizens as “filthy animals.” The fighter was quickly rushed out of the arena following the interview and may face disciplinary charges from the UFC for his statement.

All of that in mind, local fight fans were not the only people to be irked by Covington’s statement. Now fighters from Covington’s American Top Team gym have come forward with their thoughts on his statement.
