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.
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.
