Surging UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington is not afraid to get into it with his naysayers on Twitter. The latest person to find himself on the receiving end of Covington’s Twitter trash talk is former UFC title challenger and current analyst Kenny Florian.

It began when Covington responded to a Tweet from UFC on Fox, during which UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley discussed the title picture.

This Tweet prompted a response from Florian, who accused Covington of uttering gay slurs and implicating people with disabilities in his trash talk.

This then generated return fire from Covington, who unleashed one of the most savage Tweets you’ll ever see, trashing Florian for his history of plagiarism, his multiple failed attempts to capture UFC gold, and the strength of his opposition.

Who do you think came out on top in this heated Twitter beef?
