Dustin Poirier’s wife Jolie Poirier has posted a new orange swimsuit photo sipping champagne. Jolie has been attacked by Colby Covington recently, who has claimed Conor McGregor is the real father of her daughter. The former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington got entailed in a controversy five years back when he made some debatable remarks about Brazilian fight fans and the country. Its remarks came after his win over Demian Maia nearly five years ago. Covington fought Maia in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in October 2017, where the grappling expert took home a unanimous decision win over the BJJ specialist after three rounds of battle.
The comments following the match landed ‘Chaos’ in serious troubles, but recently ONE flyweight world champion Adriano Moraes refuted the fact that Covington abhors Brazilians.
Adriano Moraes backs Colby Covington for his comments
Moraes believes that Covington did not have any immoral connotation. The Brazilian revealed that the Covington was always kind to him whenever they shared the mats at American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida. Ahead of his world title contest against Yuya Wakamatsu at ONE X on Saturday, March 26, Adriano Moraes had this to say about Covington:
“He was always nice to me. When he went to fight in Brazil, the crowd was very cruel to him, and he just responded in kind.”
‘Mikinho’ further explained that the UFC star’s remarks were part of the business and pointed out that Covington’s controversial antics to build up his fights:
“I believe it’s part of show business. He trash-talks and tries to sell the fight as best he can. And the UFC likes that. I believe he says a lot of stuff just to sell the fight. And in the end, it works out because he’s always getting good fights and making the main event,” he said.
