Colby Covington attacks Black Lives Matter campaign and brands Woodley a ‘communist’ after brutal fifth-round TKO

COLBY COVINGTON piled into the Black Lives Matter movement as he labelled slain rival Tyron Woodley a 'communist' after his brutal fifth-round TKO in the early hours of UFC Fight Night.

The Californian branded The Chosen One in his post-match interview.

Covington completely dominated the much-anticipated bout between the two bitter rivals in Las Vegas.

He claimed Woodley was a communist: “Because he is standing up for lifelong criminals.

“You know the Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It is a joke. They are taking these people. They are complete terrorists.

"They are taking these people that are criminals. You know, these aren’t people that are hard working Americans. Blue collar Americans.

"These are bad people. They are criminals, you know, and they shouldn’t be attacking police.

"You know if you are breaking the law and you are threatening the cops with weapons. You know, you deserve to get what you get.

“Law enforcement protects us all. If you don’t have law enforcement it would be the wild wild west.

"So you know, people need to go and give a pat on the back to law enforcement every single day and thank them for keeping us all safe.

"Otherwise you know all these criminals would be running the streets wild and none of us would be safe.”

The Donald Trump fan added in an interview with “You know he is a communist. You know, he’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”

Californian Covington took his record to 8-1 in his last nine UFC fights as he crushed Woodley.

He had him down in the first and fourth before the referee stopped the fight after 1min 19 sec of the fifth when the Missouri man had suffered nasty rib damage.

It was a third defeat for 38-year-old Woodley.
