UFC fighter Colby Covington recently made his presence felt at the premiere of Candace Owens’ new documentary, The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM. The UFC welterweight fighter was spotted on the red carpet with none other than hip-hop mogul Kanye West and Candace Owens. Kid Rock was also photographed with West, looking sad. The fans were certainly delighted with what they had witnessed. They also had fun speculating about the plans between the two.
Colby Covington hangs out with Kayne West
Kanye West had sparked controversy at the Paris fashion show by wearing a T-shirt embellished with the words “White Lives Matter.” Covington, on the other hand, blasted Tyron Woodley for wearing the “Black Lives Matter” T-shirt, labeling the movement a “complete sham” at UFC Vegas 11.
The unusual guest list for the event had MMA fans speculating on the interaction between the two. Fans hopped to the comments section of Full Violence’s post, an Instagram page that posted an image of the them on the red carpet.
One fan claimed that Kanye West is helping Covington script a diss song against Khamzat Chimaev:
“Colby’s Khamzat disstrack in the works.”
Another fan wrote that while West will help Colby Covington with his comeback against Chimaev, who’s been calling for a fight against the American, ‘Chaos’ will help the hip-hop star beat-up Pete Davidson:
“Kanye writing Colby a diss-track for Khamzat .Colby beating up Pete Davidson.”
Meanwhile, another fan noted that it is quite a day for the MMA community since UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards also met up with the controversial Tate brothers in Abu Dhabi:
“Leon + the Tates and now Colby + ye, MMA community taking Ws.”
