Kamaru Usman mocks Colby Covington’s UFC Newark post-fight interview: ‘Let’s make English great again’

Kamaru Usman makes fun of Colby Covington’s post-fight interview at UFC on ESPN 5.

Colby Covington might be teaming up with Team Trump to ‘make American great again’, but the No. 1-ranked welterweight contender is having a little trouble with his spoken English.

Covington, who dominated Robbie Lawler enroute to a unanimous decision win in last night’s UFC on ESPN 5 main event at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, had some trouble pronouncing ‘Madison Square Garden’ when he called out reigning welterweight champ Kamaru Usman in his post-fight interview.

Usman, who got into a heated exchange with Covington during the UFC on ESPN post-fight show, made fun of ‘Chaos’s’ minor mispronunciation in a recent Tweet.

“Let’s make English great again @ColbyCovMMA @realDonaldTrump,” Usman tweeted on Saturday evening, tagging Covington and Trump.

Although nothing has been confirmed, it’s expected that Covington, who is on an impressive seven-fight win streak, will challenge Usman for the official welterweight title sometime later this year. The 31-year-old accused Usman of ducking him during yesterday’s UFC on ESPN post-fight show.
