Colby Covington is a huge fan of Conor McGregor and does not like Dustin Poirier, as many fans are well aware of the fact. Colby Covington was also spotted with Donald Trump’s wife earlier this year.
Colby Covington recently spoke on The DC Check-In, where he recalled an interesting story involving him, Daniel Cormier, and Brazil where he was threatened after a racial insult.
“Yeah, I feel like, ‘Yeah, I got you.’ They like to dish out all this energy and say these mean things like, ‘you [voce] vai morrer,’ which we know means ‘You will die.’ So, if you want to say these mean things, expect mean things to get said back at you. So, if you want to be a part of the show and play the game, don’t be afraid when you get burned.
They did. They were loaded like secret service Brazilian guards who had guns and everything. And they were like, ‘Hey, we’ve got to get you out through like, this crazy exit (from the arena) in the bottom. And we’ve got to take you to the hotel early. And you’ve got to wear glasses and cover yourself with a hoodie and a hat.’ Yeah. They were like, ‘You’ve got to go in disguise. We can’t have you out.’ Like, that’s why they wouldn’t let me do a post-fight press conference after the fight because there was like, a bunch of Brazilians surrounded the arena like, with guns and knives and forks…And that’s when I remember my whole team was like, yelling, ‘Man, you put all our lives at risk; not just yourself. Like, they’re going to want to kill us all now.’ So, they were all pi**ed at me.”
