Colby Covington’s Distasteful Tweet About Mike Perry Did Not Go Down Well On Twitter

Mike Perry suffered a decision loss to Max Griffin in front of his hometown crowd at UFC Orlando on Saturday night. Following the fight, fellow UFC welterweight Colby Covington tweeted Perry, and it did not go down well with other fighters and fans. 

“Hey [Mike Perry], maybe having your ratchet horse faced girlfriend as your head trainer isn’t the smartest idea on planet earth,” wrote the often abrasive Covington. “But hey, when you’re the product of cousins fucking in Ocala, [Florida], how strong can your decision-making skills be?”

People were quick to respond with their disapproval of the controversial tweet, most notably UFC featherweight Cub Swanson, who urged Covington to show some class.

Covington has not fought since defeating Damien Maia in October, and many want to see him take on Kamaru Usman next, which would definitely make for an exciting match-up.

Shortly after the number three ranked welterweight tweeted last night, Usman once again called him out.

“You are the definition of a [Twitter Thug],” wrote Usman. “I can’t wait to leave you staring up at those UFC lights when I knock you [the f**k out]!! Keep hiding, your time is coming.”

Rafael dos Anjos looks likely to get the next shot at Tyron Woodley’s welterweight title, but a fight between Usman and Covington could well act as a title eliminator to determine who gets a crack after the Brazilian veteran.

Maybe Covington is trying to gain publicity in order get closer to a title shot, but he seems to have gone too far with this latest tweet.
