UFC Star Colby Covington Taunts Hip Hop Legend 50 Cent
We’re huge MMA fans and tend to watch all the PPV UFC bouts live. Given the main card begins at 3am and ends around 5.45am, it can ruin a Sunday, but live is live.
There’s been a steady flow of articulate fighters coming out the UFC. Chael Sonnen was the king of smack talk some years ago. They tried to paint him a racist and many comments he made could be considered antagonistic, but we didn’t believe the man was a racist.
The same pattern is emerging today with Colby Covington. The man they all love to hate and a character everyone wants to see get destroyed. Their wish was granted recently at UFC 245, where Kamaru Usman knocked him out in the fifth round of the title bout in Las Vegas.
Social media was lit-up in following days but Colby has focused in on 50 Cent. A rapper that has ties to boxing promotions and tries to instigate celebrity boxing matches between rappers. 50 Cent spends a great deal of time trolling certain folks such as undefeated world champ Mayweather. He even threw a few jibes at Conor McGregor who closed him down at a Press Conference.
50 Cent began mocking Colby and called him a racist. This didn’t go down too well with the fighter, Colby has put $1 million up to fight the rapper with one hand tied behind his back. It sounds like a joke but Colby is serious abut the offer. It would be the quickest million bucks he ever earned. Although the fighter has promised all winnings to the troops. We didn’t find a reaction from the hip hop star at time of posting.
