Fans should have saw it coming, but controversial UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington has outdone himself on social media yet again, by posting spoilers of the newly-released Marvel blockbuster, Avengers: Infinity War.

(Don’t worry, those spoilers won’t be posted in this article)

Covington, who has quickly become one of the most hated fighters on the UFC roster, previously posted spoilers last year on Star Wars: The Last Jedi and summoned the wrath of Star Wars fans everywhere.

‘Chaos’ made sure to spoil the latest Avengers movie on launch night, calling his haters ‘virgins’ and including all the appropriate tags to gain maximum exposure on Twitter.

The 30-year-old has also made enemies with a number of fighters on the UFC roster, and was involved in a minor altercation with ex-UFC heavyweight champ Fabricio Werdum after he called Brazil a ‘dump’ and its countrymen ‘filthy animals’.

Covington recently stated that he plans to have armed security guards accompany him at all future UFC events, and told his fellow fighters to keep their emotions in check and stop acting like ‘thugs’ on the street.

Covington will face Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight title at UFC 225. The pay-per-view takes place later this year, June 9 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
