We haven’t heard much from Jon Jones since his failed drug test was revealed in August, but the ugly incident between Fabricio Werdum and Colby Covington in Australia was enough to get the former UFC champion going on social media.
Werdum on Thursday was charged with assault for allegedly throwing a boomerang at Covington outside the Hilton Sydney, which is serving as the host hotel for UFC Fight Night 121.
Parts of the encounter were caught on camera, including Covington’s live stream. By the time Covington’s video starts, he’s already hurling expletive after expletive at Werdum, including a homophobic slur, before turning the camera on himself and uttering this message to his followers:
“F*ck Brazil. F*ck Fabricio Werdum. Little b*tch ass. “F*ck Brazil. A bunch of filthy animals. And they wonder why they get talked to like that. Because they’re a bunch of animals.”
That message essentially continued Covington’s anti-Brazil remarks in Sao Paulo following last month’s win over Demian Maia at UFC Fight Night 119. And it was enough for Jones to start chiming in on Twitter.
Jones wasn’t done there. He went nearly 12 hours before starting up again on Covington, who was his former roommate in college. It’s worth noting that Covington recently went on a tirade calling Jones a “piece of sh*t dirtbag.”
And here’s what Jones had to say in response:
