You didn’t expect Colby Covington to bite his tongue, did you?
Werdum, the former UFC heavyweight champion, was blasted with an uppercut by Volkov in the fourth round and laid out with two follow-up punches. Volkov, 29, extended his win streak to six and will storm into the top-five heavyweight rankings after shutting out one of the division’s most seasoned competitors.
Werdum, 40, got into a physical altercation with Covington last November, when ‘Chaos’ pressed charges against ‘Vai Cavalo’ after the Brazilian launched a boomerang at him outside a hotel in Sydney, Australia.
Covington had repeatedly disrespected Werdum’s home country of Brazil and referred to his countrymen as ‘filthy animals’. Werdum was fined $600 by the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney, New South Wales.
Covington, a top-three ranked welterweight contender, is notorious for online trolling. The 30-year-old posted major spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi in December and recently hurled abuse at Mike Perry’s ex-girlfriend after ‘Platinum’s’ loss to Max Griffin at UFC on FOX 28. The NCAA Division I wrestling standout is currently angling for a title bout with reigning welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, although ‘T-Wood’ doesn’t seem interested in the idea.
