VIDEO | Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington get in heated confrontation at UFC press conference

UFC welterweight standouts Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington got in a heated confrontation at last night’s UFC press conference in Brooklyn.

Usman started by pesturing Covington with insults calling the brash UFC welterweight a “Twitter Thug” which eventually prompted “Chaos” to react.

No punches or strikes were thrown but it was obvious that there is some genuine dislike between the two perennial 170-pound contenders.
