Colby Covington put on a dominant performance on Saturday night against former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler. “Chaos” earned a unanimous decision verdict, likely putting him next in line to challenge current titleholder Kamaru Usman.
Covington kept the fight standing for the most part, setting a new UFC record for 533 total strike attempts. While many were impressed by his performance, others threw shade at it.
One of them was Bellator welterweight fighter Dillon Danis, who shared his reaction on Twitter.
Colby is so sloppy i thought I was watching ufc 1 with those choke attempts if we fought the cops couldn’t even save him from the beating i would put on his bitch ass.— Dillon Danis (@dillondanis) August 3, 2019
Danis himself is a known talker online, and this not the first time he’s thrown jabs at Covington. The likelihood of them fighting each other, however, is slim to none, as of the moment. He currently holds a 2-0 record since making his Bellator debut in April of last year.
Covington is currently on a seven-fight win streak, beating the likes of Demian Maia and Rafael dos Anjos along the way. He holds a record of 15-1 (with seven wins by stoppage).
