Coby Covington who needed some extra security to get out of the arena last time he fought. Says that he has hired armed personal guards for his next bout.
Covington takes on former champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225. RDA and Covington fight for the interim welterweight title.
UFC scheduled this bout for UFC 224 in Brazil but they reach it after Covington took some verbal shots at Brazilian People. This for Covington’s own safety.
“Luckily, my agent, Dan Lambert, has all the money in the world. He’s already hired a full security guard team, whenever I go to events or anything related to the UFC, I will have armed security guards with me.”
Covington doesn’t only need security from the fans but from the fellow fighters as well. We all remember Fabricio Werdum threw a boomerang at Covington in Australia and Covington got into a heated argument with Kamaru Usman earlier this month in a press conference at Brooklyn.
