    UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington was all over the combat sports news headlines this past weekend after UFC Newark. Not only did he defeat former champion Robbie Lawler in dominant fashion, he also made some controversial comments that for some people, was way overboard.

    During a post-fight interview, “Chaos” took a jab at UFC Hall-of-Famer Matt Hughes, who was severely injured in a train accident more than two years ago.

    Trying his hardest to be polorising, leaning a bit too heavily on the dickhead route though.

    if they fought now, probably go the same way as the video.

    Masvidal improved a lot but so has Colby.

    I was just pointing out how old the video was. They have both come along way since then.

    I think they're still cool with each other. Masvidal just speaks his mind and Colby's trying hard with this heel role

    Colby could call Jorge and say 'just getting heat LoL' and they'd still be cool. Just caught Jorge by surprise with the question.

    “Let’s talk about the lesson we learned tonight. It’s a strong lesson Robbie should have learned a lesson from his buddy Matt Hughes,” Covington said. “You stay off the tracks when the train is coming through, junior. Doesn’t matter if it’s the Trump train or the Colby train, get out the way.”

    LOL, I hate Colby but I actually like this comment.
