    At a November press conference in New York, Covington accused Usman of playing a role in Robinson’s death, saying that he “gave Glenn a heart attack from all those years you were ducking me.” It’s a line Covington has used before, but this time he punctuated it with an even more audacious statement, claiming that Robinson would be “watching from hell on Dec. 14.”

    Robinson’s daughters, who requested their names be withheld, reached out to MMA Junkie to offer a public reply. While admitting they didn’t necessarily want to take part in Covington’s promotional strategy, Robinson’s daughters said they felt compelled to speak out on behalf of their father.

    “It saddens us to even have to make a statement regarding a previous distasteful comment Colby Covington made suggesting our late father, Glenn Robinson, will be watching his upcoming fight from hell. However, after careful thought and consideration, on behalf of our family, we feel it is necessary to defend our father’s name.

    “The death of our father is still very raw. Our family is still grieving from his loss, so imagine the hurt we felt to hear such hateful words recklessly said about our father.

    “We understand the excitement of building up hype before a fight, but we are sure Colby Covington can get press for his upcoming fight on his own merit and without spewing hateful words towards our father, the founder of the Blackzilians. In fact, our father was the exact opposite of a hateful person. He gave countless opportunities to many people, both personally and professionally. He consistently put everyone else’s best interests before his own. Our father died too young, but we can proudly say he accomplished more during his short life than many others do in a full lifetime.

    “Lastly, we did not want to make this statement or to breathe more life into someone that truly has no relevance in our lives, but we will always defend our father, his reputation and his name, the one we share proudly.”

    –Written by the daughters of the late Glenn Robinson

    Never before has an image been more apt than this, for my reaction upon hearing him deliver that sickening line:

    <{you!}>

    I think dignifying that statement with a response was a mistake. It will only bring more eyes to Colby.

    Another classless move by this bozo. Only absolute shit heads and complete morons are fans of this guy. Looking forward to the beating he will be receiving shortly.

    Colby was too inactive and unbeaten for too long. His troll WWE shtick has overtaken his whole life.

    Glenn the basketball dude?

    It's not cool to make fun of someone's death unless they were a horrible person

    No one even gave a shit or paid attention to this stupid crap until this article.

    Colby wins again.

    But the UFC is looking for an excuse to cut him. After which, Colby can go fight in Asia with his MAGA troll act, which will be a hit.

    At this point, he's got it coming, for sure. He takes his little, dumb act too far.
