Colby Covington shocked everyone when he returned to London to weigh in as the backup fighter for UFC 286. He has not been seen since his street altercation with Jorge Masvidal last year. In his return to mainstream media attention, Colby was back in his usual trash-talking style. This time, he trash-talked England.
Colby said, “I can’t say this has been a welcome place. The food sucks, the weather sucks, the girls definitely suck, but I mean, I do come from Miami. I’m the king of Miami. It hasn’t been an enjoyable trip.” It appears Colby is not a fan of England at all.
Colby Covington stayed away from media attention after his altercation with Jorge Masvidal. But now he is looking to fight this year. He has indicated that he wants the winner of Edwards vs Usman 3. With Leon Edwards retaining his title, Colby will indeed look to fight Edwards somewhere down the line.

Brazil rant is still the most iconic moment of Colby Covington
After defeating Demian Maia at a Fight Night event in Brazil, Colby “Chaos” Covington called out the fans and Brazil as a dump and filthy animals. Recently, he attacked England for their food, weather and girls at UFC 286 Media Appearance. But his rant on Brazil is still the most iconic moment of his career.
In the post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier, Colby said, “I should have knocked him out. Brazil, you’re a dump, all you filthy animals suck! I got one thing to say, Tyron Woodley I’m coming for you. If you don’t answer the front door, I’m gonna knock it in and take what’s mine, that welterweight belt.
Colby Covington is looking to fight this year. Leon vs Colby is a fresh matchup now that Leon Edwards has retained the title against Kamaru Usman. They have not fought before, which could also be a fight that excites the fans. Colby talked trash about Champion Edward’s country, and he might look to shut Colby up for the disrespect.
