Covington Responds To Everyone Who Made Fun Of Him For Calling The Cops On Werdum

Fabricio Werdum’s anger over Colby Covington’s contorversial remarks at UFC Fight Nigh 119 from Sao Paulo reached a pinnacle in Sydney, Australia when the two fighters spotted each other on the street.

After defeating Demian Maia, Covington called Brazilians “filthy animals” and their country a “dump.” Irked by these words, Werdum would later come face-to-face with the fighter, leading to a physical altercation.

As seen in the video above, Covington was struck by Werdum with a boomerang and punched in the face. The fighter would go on to press charges against Werdum.

Since then, Covington has been criticized by some fight fans for contacting the Australian police about the incident. That in mind, the fighter is still completely behind his decision to do so.

Appearing on The MMA Hour, Colby Covington offered his thoughts on those that criticize him for pressing charges against Werdum.

“Where is the equality at? All of the people in the world that are saying, ‘Oh, he’s a snitch. He went to the cops.’ You are condoning violence, because of free speech.

“You know what that’s called? That’s called fascism. You know who else believed in fascism? Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. It’s not okay.

“What he did, there will be justice served.”
