- Colby Covington was at a recent event with famous celebrities
- “Chaos” made another controversial comment about a sensitive matter
MMA fans have been used to Colby Covington’s controversial remarks and stunts. And yet again, “Chaos” pulled off another one in his recent social media post. This time, Covington is joined by famous celebrities.
A shot at BLM
Since the death of George Floyd, the “Black Lives Matter” rose to prominence and it became one of the most sensitive issues in the country for obvious reasons. Covington has earned quite a reputation for his bold takes on racial issues and he touched the subject once again in his recent post.
Covington was at the premiere of Candace Owens’ BLM documentary, “The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM.” The No. 2 welterweight contender hung around with Owens herself, Kanye West and Ray J and they posed for a couple of photos.
Revealing why he took part in the event, Covington shared a photo of him alongside the aforementioned famous personalities and expressed his support to Owens’ work.
“Paying my last respects to #BLM,” Covington wrote on Twitter. “They had a good run of scamming innocent Americans, but (Candace Owens) just buried them 12 feet deep with her new documentary The Greatest Lie Ever Sold!!!! Check it out on DailyWire+”

“Chaos” is edging closer to UFC return
While Covington seems busy with other things outside MMA, it appears that he’s also nearing his UFC return. It was previously reported that “Chaos” suffered some serious injuries following his dramatic physical altercation with Jorge Masvidal shortly after their UFC 272 clash. Nevertheless, UFC president Dana White confirmed last month that they are already “making plans” for Covington’s comeback fight.
The current welterweight division is stacked, so Covington would have many options. Let’s see how things would play out.
