In a high energy post-fight press conference after his dominant victory over Tyrone Woodley, Colby Covington blasted the BLM movement, which Woodley is a big supporter of.
“Black Lives Matter is a complete sham,” Covington said “It’s a joke. They’re taking people that are complete terrorists. These are bad people… [Tyron Woodley] is a communist. He’s a Marxist. He hates America.”
