Trash-talking villain and part-time boomerang-eater Colby Covington has done his best to make himself memorable, putting forth boring fights but talking up a storm of hate and insults.
This has resulted in him getting a fight against former champ Rafael dos Anjos in the co-main event of UFC 225. It’s also made it impossible for him to fight in Brazil out of fear of his life.
But Covington is playing things cool as a cucumber, because homeboy has confidence in the extra security detail he’ll have.
Sadly, while Covington was wrestling in college, he was apparently skipping out on his history classes. As a result, he has no knowledge of how the elite Praetorian Guards, who were charged with protecting emperors, sometimes took out evil and wicked rulers themselves.
Here’s hoping Covington gets the Caligula treatment!
As per MMAJunkie:
UFC welterweight Colby Covington needed extra security to get out of the arena after his last fight. For his next bout, he said he’ll have his own personal security detail to keep anyone from getting ideas.
“We’ve already taken those measures,” Covington, who faces former champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225, told MMAjunkie Radio. “Luckily, my agent, Dan Lambert, has all the money in the world. He’s already hired a full security guard team, (and) whenever I go to events or anything related to the UFC, I will have armed security guards with me.”
