    He can't handle the boo's from a Brazilian crowd? Not having the support of an audience leading up to a fight sets him off to hate an entire nation of people? Why does he care so much about what other people think about him? So insecure, so sensitive. Brazil isn't favoring him in a match up against Maia and that sets him the fuck off? Lmao.

    Why is this guy such an emotional wuss? Typical threatened far-right American. smh.

    It's called playing the heel.

    lol source?????

    he isn't picking fights with anyone he can get a sanctioned fight with. in no way does acting like a piece of trash for some quick camera time mean it will translate into draw power.

    colby is absolutely sensitive because he hates all of brazil because they didn't root for him. the guy is a weak minded pussy.

    No one is paying for a Colby Covington fight lmao.

    To play the heel you actually have to be good in the cage.

    Yes it will.
    If he gets a quick turnaround, everyone on this site will time in.
    Just like they did for Chael, just like they did for Conor.
    Love him or hate him, you're all paying attention.

    He's a no one. He'll get KOd in his next fight and no one will remember him.

    Speaking of his mum, anyone got her pic?

    lmao colby did not invent the heel. there have been countless heel characters that were far more successful and did not require acting like a piece of shit trash.

    this is called being so bland that you have to rely on blatantly obvious attempts at creating controversy by saying shit others aren't willing to because they aren't shitty human beings without stepping foot in the cage to back your trashy language up. there's a reason he backpedaled and hid behind people during the entire werdum altercation despite starting the fucking thing.

    Agreed. Colby is very sensitive.

    First he goes off on the crowd in a xenophobic tirade because he can't handle the boos/chants which literally EVERY non Brazilian fighter has dealt with until now.

    Then he runs to the police after provoking an altercation with Werdum and getting cracked in the face with a toy boomerang.

    Colby is officially the softest MMA fighter ever.

    We're talking about him because we're one day removed from the altercation. This will die down in another day and everyone will go on to not give a fuck.

    Chael picked a fight with a guy in his weight class. So did Conor. This Colby fuck is talking shit about a nation of people that no top contenders in that that weight class represent. he isn't picking fights with guys he can actually get a sanctioned fight with, he's just letting the world know "HEY, I MAKE SWEEPING GENERALIZATIONS ABOUT BRAZIL. LOOK AT ME!!!"

    He's obviously not going to ME a PPV man, use your head for more than a snot locker.
    Put the dude on Fox, against a Brazilian, and there's at least a whole Country watching.

    basically, you're exaggerating the impact of what he's doing and assuming it will make him a draw.

    being a piece of shit does not make you a draw. it makes you a piece of shit. you have to do more than that to be a draw, otherwise everyone would be pieces of shit. he is not special for being a piece of shit. understand?

    Sure, but once he gets murked then everyone forgets about him again. Bexause hes just not that interesting.

    He might do decent numbers for his next fight, if it's against a Brazilian on fox.

    But this is a storyline that gets old quick.

    You're assuming obviously that he approached Fabricio.
    Would it not be a little more reasonable to suggest that Fabricio approached Colby?
    He's already tried to fight a 155'er

    They all do. Story lines usually die right after the fight. Unless of course you're 155'er. (I'm looking at you Aldo)
    Just don't be so quick to say he sucks, he just beat Maia

    Other than this storyline, he has no drawing power. Once it's done, his "drawing power" goes back to non-existent.

    And that story line is also only interesting to either people who want to see him get his ass beat by a Brazilian, or fellow xenophobes wanting to see him beat up a Brazilian "filthy animal."

    That's it. That's as far as casual interest in Colby goes.

    And he beat old man Maia, who pieced him up in the striking.

    Once he faces a real striker with TDD it's over.

    Who cares who approached who?

    Kelvin said that Colby approached Werdum and threw a kick. Colby says that Werdum punched him initially, now he's saying it was a boomerang. I don't care about either perspective. My point is about Colby acting like a piece of shit towards an entire nation of people who he will never have a sanctioned fight against, and currently will not have a relevant fight against. RIght now, it seems like he cares way too much about letting the world know that he doesn't like Brazil - but why in the MMA world does anyone care if it doesn't result in a sanctioned fight?" We all know Werdum would kill him. We all know Jon Jones would kill him. Why is he trying so hard to talk shit to guys he cannot get a sanctioned fight with only to hide behind security and talk shit from a distance when guys approach him?

    Getting people to talk about you for saying trashy shit isn't going to result in anything positive, ESPECIALLY if you aren't going to prove your talent or worth in the sport you are in by building interest in fights with fighters relevant to your weight class.

    At this point, he's just being a piece of shit for the sake of being a piece of shit.
