Colby Covington Destroys Fabricio Werdum For Failing USADA Drug Test

Here’s a surprise.

The post Colby Covington Destroys Fabricio Werdum For Failing USADA Drug Test appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

He may have been reported to headline UFC Moscow just yesterday, but former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum saw that fight fall apart when news broke he had failed a USADA drug test earlier today.

Details were scant about the Brazilian veteran’s potential violation, as his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, stated they had not yet been informed Werdum had been pulled from his reported bout with Alexey Oleynik at the UFC’s first trip to Russia on September 15 and that he had not used any illegal substance.

The gears are still churning in that regard, but one of Werdum’s outside-the-cage enemies, not surprisingly, took to social media shortly after the news broke to call him out.

UFC interim welterweight title challenger Colby Covington, who had his own highly publicized beef with Werdum at last November’s UFC Sydney that resulted in “Vai Cavalo” being arrested for throwing a boomerang at Chaos,’ called the former champion a ‘slimeball’ for allegedly using performance-enhancing drugs:

While it’s hardly a surprise to hear Covington call Werdum out – he’s called out nearly every prominent name in MMA since his win over Demian Maia last October – this one is actually involving someone he has a legitimate beef with, making it all the more enticing.

Covington is building a name for himself by talking as much trash as he can, and it’s working.

As for Werdum, he’s now caught in the wheels of justice, and when that comes to USADA, the wheels can tend to move slowly.

Stay tuned.

Colby Covington Rips ‘Coked Up Leprechaun’ Conor McGregor

Colby Covington put McGregor on blast over his bus attack.

Colby Covington is known for his trash talk and went after a big name in his latest rant.

The rising contender is slated to fight former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight title at the upcoming UFC 225 pay-per-view event.

If you recall, it was originally rumored that this fight would take place at the UFC 224 pay-per-view in Brazil but it got moved.

There were rumors that this fight was moved dates as a result of the actions of former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

Just last month during fight week of the UFC 223 pay-per-view event, McGregor and several members of his entourage decided to fly from Ireland to Brooklyn, New York to get revenge on current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who got into an argument with McGregor’s training partner, Artem Lobov, earlier that week.

This led to McGregor attacking the fighter bus that had Khabib on and he was arrested as a result.

He was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. McGregor still has a court date set for June 14th to face his charges.

However, that is not the case according to Covington who had other theories.

“It had nothing to do with the McGregor incident. They wanted this moment in American history to happen on U.S. soil. The filthy animals in Brazil don’t deserve it,” Covington told Fightful. “If we get the steroid version of RDA, it’ll probably take me until the second or third round to finish him. If we get the clean version, he’s leaving on a stretcher. That’s a spoiler for you.”

“I was actually getting on a plane to New York as it happened. He’s a coked up little leprechaun. It’s funny how I put a tweet that King Colby the bounty hunter was coming after him, he turned himself in. He knows what would happen. I would dunk that nerd underwater and make him quit,” said Covington.

Outspoken welterweight contender Colby Covington has had his fair share of words with a variety of people in the mixed martial arts community and that includes longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

Previously, Rogan had warned Covington about comments he made towards troubled former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones:

“You’ve got to be careful, watch your f**king words,” Rogan said. “You’re going to get slapped in the face by a guy who can kill you with his hands.”

Covington then responded by saying that he might just have to slap Rogan. And on a recent edition of his podcast, Rogan once again discussed the situation:

“Colby Covington, don’t slap me,” Rogan said. “You said you were going to slap me? Don’t slap me. I was talking s**t. Because I was telling that Jon Jones might slap him. ‘I might slap you!’ I like Colby, I like what he’s doing. He’s talking a lot of s**t, I’m just saying be careful who you talk shit to. Talking s**t to Jon Jones … he’s one of the baddest motherf**kers who ever lived.”

Continuing on, however, Rogan admitted that Covington has been smart in being brash and brining attention to himself:

“He’s making a lot of money, he’s being smart,” Joe said. “The reason Colby is fighting for the title, the reason Colby is going to fight Rafael dos Anjos for the interim title, is not just because he’s beaten good guys, because he has beaten Demian Maia. But it’s more importantly that he’s going to put asses in the seats. Part of the fight business now. There’s pre- and post-Conor McGregor, and post Conor McGregor the game has changed. It’s red panties night, baby. Everything’s different.”

Covington is currently scheduled to take on former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in an interim welterweight title fight at UFC 225 on June 9 in Chicago, Illinois.
