UFC welterweight Leon Edwards is not fan of Colby Covington or his politics.

On Saturday night, Covington dominated Tyron Woodley for four rounds until the fight was stopped when Woodley appeared to injure his ribs.

After the fight, Covington blasted Woodley for representing everything he hates which includes standing for the “Black Lives Matter” movement and being a “communist” who “hates America”.

Following his tirade at UFC Vegas 11, a couple of prominent black fighters including Edwards and Kamaru Usman stepped up to say that they were waiting to knock out Covington for his “racist” comments.

Usman, who is currently the UFC welterweight champion after beating Covington last December, has been critical of Covington’s political commentary in the past.
