New Video Footage Shows Kamaru Usman, Ali Abdelaziz Confronts Covington In Las Vegas
As soon UFC 235 PPV event concluded which went down last month, shortly after the news emerged that Kamaru Usman, Ali Abdelaziz and outspoken Colby Covington got into a heated altercation at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. Through that footage, it was hard to tell who started the brawl.
Now TMZ released another video which shows Usman who captured the 170-pound title after beating Tyron Woodley teamed up with his manager Ali and confronted Colby Covington.
It seems like this rivalry is the hottest in the MMA at the moment which can only be settled inside the Octagon as both are expected to throw down sometime later this year to battle for the welterweight title.
According to BJPenn, Colby gave his side of the story that what exactly happened at Palm Casino.
“It was completely to their side, they approached me looking to get a reaction out of me. Obviously, they want me to swing,” Covington told host Jason Kindschy on the show. “You know they came up to me because they’re threatened now. Now they’ve realized that I’m the guy in the way to take everything that they worked for, so of course, they’re gonna try and come to me and get me to — hopefully I’ll swing on them and lose my title shot but it wasn’t gonna happen man. All I was doing, Jason, was sitting in the buffet line trying to get some crab legs, man. Is there something wrong man? Can I get some crab legs before I get on my flight back to South Florida and all my beautiful b*****s in Miami? It’s unbelievable.
What do you think who’ll emerge victoriously when Usman and Covington clashes inside the cage?
