They don't call it "Chaos" because it's so kind.
The number one welterweight contender of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Colby Covington, was available for the UFC 241 pay-per-view event (PPV) last weekend in Anaheim, California, but apparently he was not well received by the other fighters in attendance.
I can't imagine why.
Indeed, things have become so unstable at some point that security has been forced to convince the promotion president, Dana White, to abandon his post to intervene. And since the event was sold out, transferring Covington to another section of the arena was not an option.
"Everyone in that section continued to fight with Colby," White said during the post-fight press conference (see here). "So security continued to come to me 50 times to get him out of there. And I said, "No, everyone has to start acting like fucking professionals because I don't have another place in this whole building. The whole section has to stop starting fights with Colby."
Unfortunately for White and Co., it doesn't take much noise like Covington to set off a fight during a live event. Just ask longtime rivals Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov, or even defending welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.
"Just when I got there too, Masvidal was working his way up," said White. "Holloway had moved from his seat so Masvidal could get in his place … that fucking game you play at was just going on there when I went there. So I asked those guys to listen to me: "We had a great night here. We have a big fight. I don't need a fight with you. Stop it. & # 39;"
Covington managed to escape the unharmed UFC 241 event and move on to face Usman at some point by the end of the year. As for Masvidal, he could be lining up for a meeting of Nate Diaz after being called for a "gangster" fight at the end of this year.
