Colby Covington Blasts dos Anjos For Beating Lawler, Then Blasts Brazil Again

Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos delivered a career defining victory over former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, in the UFC on FOX 26 main event. However, Colby Covington was not impressed, and blasted the former champion after his win.

Watching the fight in real-time, it’s hard to pick up any real blemishes in RDA’s performance. He methodically used leg kicks mixed with body and head strikes to dictate the pace, and was able to hurt Lawler. This was the story for most of the five round fight and ultimately gave dos Anjos the unanimous decision victory.

Despite his dominant performance, welterweight antagonist Colby Covington was not impressed, and he said as much in a post fight statement.

“Sad performance by the JV Squad on FOX for #UFCWinnipeg. RDA couldn’t even finish a broken old man! Tyrones faking injuries. I’m here to make this division great again. @RdosAnjosMMA step up and defend that #dump you call home & fight me for the interim title you #FilthyAnimal”

The anti-Brazilian line that got a boomerang thrown at Covington is his infamous “Filthy Animal” comment that he used when addressing RDA’s performance.
