UFC welterweight Mike Perry suffered his second consecutive loss at this weekend’s UFC on FOX 28. Directly following the fighter’s defeat, controversial UFC competitor Colby Covington offered a antagonizing message to the Florida native.

Perry was featured on the night’s main card, facing off against Max Griffin. Griffin ultimately earned a unanimous decision victory over his opponent.
Taking to Twitter minutes after the end of the fight, UFC welterweight Colby Covington decided to antagonize the losing fighter with a message concerning Perry’s girlfriend.
“Hey @PlatinumPerry, maybe having your ratchet horse faced girlfriend as your head trainer isn’t the smartest idea on planet earth. But hey, when you’re the product of cousins f**king in Ocala FL how strong can your decision making skills be? #UFCOrlando”
