Colby Covington challenges 50 Cent to a fight, blasts Rosie O’Donnell

As he seeks a rematch with UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman later this year, Colby Covington is currently taking aim at some celebrity detractors, who couldn’t help but dance on his grave after he suffered a fifth-round TKO loss this past December.

After a back and forth war for more than 20 minutes, Covington ultimately got knocked down and finished by Usman in their bout at UFC 245.

Afterwards, hip-hop star 50 Cent blasted Covington while calling him a “racist piece of sh*t” while celebrating the fact that he got his jaw broken during the fight. Actress Rosie O’Donnell also chimed in while saying that she enjoyed watching Covington “limp out with a broken jaw.”

While he’s largely kept to himself in the aftermath of the fight, Covington says it’s nearly impossible to avoid what people have been saying about him but particularly when it comes to these two celebrities in particular.

“It’s impossible not to hear because I’ve got a lot of fans who will come up to me ‘oh did you hear about that?’ or even friends ‘did you hear 50 Cent talking sh*t about you, did you hear about Rosie O’Donnell talking sh*t about you?’ and yeah I see that stuff,” Covington told MMA Fighting. “I have to laugh.”

When it comes to 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson), Covington is not only ready to verbally spar with the rapper but if he’s really willing to back up his words, the former interim welterweight champion has an idea how they can settle their beef.

“50 Cent? The guy was hit eight times and that’s his claim to fame ‘oh I was hit eight times and that couldn’t put me down’. If he gets hit one time by me, he’ll never get back up,” Covington said. “There’s one guy who got his jaw wired shut and it wasn’t me. It was 50 Cent. He’s a little b*tch. I want to fight 50 Cent next. I think we should do a celebrity charity boxing match. I’ll put up $1 million of my dollars and it’s going to go straight to the troops. He’s a broke b*tch so he probably doesn’t have a million dollars but he can go as one of his f*cking sponsors to put it up and we can do this.

“I want one hand tied behind my back. I will let him pick which hand to tie behind me back. Left or right, whichever one you want, 50. Be a f*cking man. You want to talk sh*t about me on Instagram and you want to talk sh*t out there? What did you ever beat, 50 Cent, besides your defenseless spouses in Hollywood. You ain’t beat sh*t motherf*cker. I’m a real f*cking fighter. I’m the best f*cking fighter in the world.”

While he’s not trying to box O’Donnell in the ring, Covington didn’t bite his tongue when he blasted the “League of Their Own” actress for her post-fight comments.

“Rosie O’Donnell? What the f*ck has Rosie O’Donnell ever done?” Covington said. “She’s losing 10-8 rounds to obesity. She’s losing 10-8 rounds to Donald Trump on f*cking Twitter. Who is she to talk about Colby “Chaos” Covington? She’s never f*cking fought. She hasn’t done sh*t.

“The only thing she’s fighting for are all the women who are leaving her because they’re trying to come to me and they’re sweating me on Instagram. So f*ck Rosie O’Donnell, that fat pig.”
