Colby Covington calls Brazilian fans ‘filthy animals’ after defeating Demian Maia

Colby Covington has no interest in making peace with the country of Brazil.

All week, “Chaos” had been talking trash about opponent Demian Maia and Maia’s home country in the leadup to their fight at UFC Sao Paulo, and he doubled down on that sentiment after winning a unanimous decision over Maia on Saturday.

Post fight, Covington went on a tirade against the Brazilian fans in attendance and UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

“Brazil, you’re a dump!” Covington said. “All you filthy animals suck. I’ve got one thing to say: Tyron Woodley, I’m coming for you. If you don’t answer the front door, I’m going to knock it in and I’m going to take what’s mine, that welterweight belt!”

Watch Covington deliver the promo himself in the video above.
