One of UFC’s loudest personalities has taken to MMA Fighting vent his outrage after a bitter loss to Kamaru Usman in UFC 245.
Colby Covington attacked Rosie O’Donnell and 50 Cent in a recent interview after they celebrated his loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 245. Covington, who has made racially insensitive remarks about his competitors and recently met with Donald Trump to present him with his championship belt, is understandably hated by many.
After Covington bragged that he would give his Usman title to Trump, he was handed a bitter defeat that saw him limping out of the arena with a broken jaw. Detractors, including Rosie O’Donnell and 50 Cent, celebrated the loss on Twitter and Instagram:

“Well look at the bright side, you won’t say the wrong thing or anything. For the next 6 weeks,” 50 Cent laughed on Twitter after posting a meme that showed the bloody and defeated Covington being led out of the ring.
Rosie O’Donnell said watching Covington limp out of the ring with a broken jaw made it “the best fight ever.”
In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Covington responded to 50 Cent calling him a “racist piece of sh*t” and O’Donnell celebrating his loss.
“It’s impossible not to hear because I’ve got a lot of fans who will come up to me ‘oh did you hear about that?’ or even friends ‘did you hear 50 Cent talking sh*t about you, did you hear about Rosie O’Donnell talking sh*t about you?’ and yeah I see that stuff,” Covington told MMA Fighting. “I have to laugh.”
“50 Cent? The guy was hit eight times and that’s his claim to fame ‘oh I was hit eight times and that couldn’t put me down’. If he gets hit one time by me, he’ll never get back up. There’s one guy who got his jaw wired shut and it wasn’t me. It was 50 Cent. He’s a little b*tch. I want to fight 50 Cent next. I think we should do a celebrity charity boxing match. I’ll put up $1 million of my dollars and it’s going to go straight to the troops. He’s a broke b*tch so he probably doesn’t have a million dollars but he can go as one of his f*cking sponsors to put it up and we can do this.”
“Rosie O’Donnell? What the f*ck has Rosie O’Donnell ever done?” Covington continued. “She’s losing 10-8 rounds to obesity. She’s losing 10-8 rounds to Donald Trump on f*cking Twitter. Who is she to talk about Colby “Chaos” Covington? She’s never f*cking fought. She hasn’t done sh*t.”
Covington clearly didn’t mince words when it came to his opponents, even though much of the criticism was pretty obviously deserved. If you’re going to dish out some of the worst sh*t talk in the business, you have to be prepared to handle it on the receiving end. If you can’t take the heat, Colby, get out of the kitchen!
