    Colby Covington had a lot to say after defeating Tyron Woodley, but how much of his statement was factually correct? Another wild weekend occurred in the UFC, with some of the biggest stories occurring outside of the Octagon. Colby Covington battered Tyron Woodley for nearly fight complete rounds heading to a one-sided victory over the former welterweight champion.

After dominating Tyron Woodley at UFC Fight Night with a fifth-round TKO, Covington dipped into his bag of MAGA tricks to disparage the man he defeated. With a history of bad blood between the two, Covington opted to keep up the charade and not only attack Woodley, but also the protests against police brutality that have taken the nation by...

    Tyron Woodley desperately tried to mock UFC fighter Colby Covington by wearing a fake MAGA hat and constantly injecting “Black Lives Matter” into his pre-fight interview, but Covington got the last laugh. During the interview, Woodley wore a red hat emulating President Donald Trump’s famed “Make America Great Again” campaign hat. Instead of the MAGA slogan, though, Woodley’s hat oddly read, “Make Racists Catch the Fade Again.” Then, as the press asked him questions during the availability, Woodley dumped the phrase “Black Lives Matter” into every answer whether it made sense or not. Later, during the on-camera face off, Woodley wore a t-shirt reading “Legalize Being Black,” and a headband reading, “Black Lives Matter.” It was clearly Woodley’s lame...
