Tyron Woodley Issues Official Response To Covington’s Call Out

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) headed to Sao Paulo, Brazil for UFC Fight Night 119 on Saturday night. In the night’s co-main event, former welterweight title contender Demian Maia faced off against Colby Covington.

Covington and Maia entered a bloody, three round battle. However, in the end, Covington earned a unanimous decision victory over his opponent. In his post-fight interview, Covington had a few choice words for the Sao Paulo crowd. The fighter called Brazil a “dump” and its people “filthy animals.” After the controversial statement, Covington once again called out the reigning welterweight champion.

UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has not suffered a defeat since 2014, in which the fighter received a unanimous decision loss to Rory MacDonald. Most recently, Woodley earned a unanimous decision win over grappling phenom Demian Maia at UFC 214. Now it would appear that the champion has provided a response to Covington’s recent call out.
