Colby Covington ROASTS Tyron Woodley following second loss

"Let’s start off by having a moment of silence for Woodley’s career..."

Always eager to play spoiler, Colby Covington dug into rival Tyron Woodley after his second straight loss, slamming his rival. 

While most rivalry in MMA is purely about sport and get settled inside the cage, the same can not be said for all cases. There are feuds that will remain hot for a long time to come, however. One that was recently brought to light was that between welterweights Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley. The two have gone back and forth several times, calling each other out and despite being on a collision coarse, have not faced off in the octagon.

Woodley competed at UFC Apex this weekend, losing a clear-cut, one-sided decision to Gilbert Burns. It was a devastating loss that may have been the nail in the coffin in regards for Woodley’s title hopes. Former welterweight champ Woodley now holds two straight losses, both dominant decision losses.

Covington decided to rub salt in Woodley’s wounds, in a recent interview with Submission Radio.


“Let’s start off by having a moment of silence for Woodley’s career,” Covington said, pouring his drink on the ground. “That’s Woodley’s career going down the drain. Just like I told you guys, he’s washed up, he don’t want to fight no more. He’s TMZ Woodley. He’s out there rapping, making songs about me, hurting people’s ear drums. You know who called it? I said he was washed up, I said he was a 40-year-old virgin. He doesn’t want to fight anymore. All he did was show up for a pay check. So, I figure we have a moment of silence for him, and I pour out a beer for his career, because cause just like his career, it went right down the drain.”

Covington is coming off of a TKO loss to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 245, and currently doesn’t have a fight booked. Woodley’s path is uncertain at the moment. This loss has certainly put him at a crossroads in regards to his career. It remains to be seen how he proceeds from here.
