By now it’s clear that Colby Covington will say something to increase the lifespan of his ever diminishing relevancy. He’s informed us all that he’s enjoying a personality, however that doesn’t imply he’s not as huge of a jerk as he’s pretending to be.
Just lately he confirmed off simply how callous and infantile he’s by making demeaning and sexual feedback about UFC fighter Polyana Viana, which won’t be repeated (or linked to) on this submit.
Sadly, the feedback have been extensively reported (and shared throughout social media) sufficient that Viana has felt the necessity to converse on the matter. On Twitter she posted a brief message, blasting the feedback from Covington as ‘revolting’.
“I’ve by no means given room for any form of remark or judgment about my private life, however it isn’t for me to guage the particular person’s perspective. I really feel sorry for individuals who act so low to attempt to promote themselves. It’s revolting.”
Sadly this isn’t the primary time a male UFC fighter has made inappropriate or sexual feedback relating to girls on the UFC roster. Much more sadly, because the UFC has by no means punished such incidents, this in all probability received’t be the final time both.
Viana is presently on a two battle successful streak within the UFC’s strawweight division. Final outing, at UFC 258 final month, she scooped Efficiency of the Evening honours along with her first spherical submission win over Mallory Martin. Previous to that win she armbarred Emily Whitmire at UFC Struggle Evening: Smith vs. Rakic.
These two wins broke a 3 battle shedding skid wherein Viana was submitted by Veronica Macedo and decisioned by Hannah Cifers and JJ Aldrich. Viana made her UFC debut in 2018 with a submission win over Maia Stevenson.
Earlier than becoming a member of the UFC Viana had a 10-1 file on the Brazilian scene, which included a KO win over Amanda Ribas.
Famously Viana fought off a mugger in 2019, leaving that particular person a bloody mess for police to remove.
