Twitter Bans Colby Covington For Racially Charged Tweet To Khabib

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov choked out Conor McGregor for a successful defense of his title on Saturday. Directly after the victory, the Dagestan native vaulted over the cage and attacked McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis.

A fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov’s cornermen quickly ensued. Former interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington has since taken to Twitter with a highly controversial message aimed at Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, it would appear that the former interim title holder has since been banned from Twitter over the matter.

Check it out below.
