MMA Betting Online Controversy Ahead of FN 121

Posted by: Anthony Yaylor

This upcoming weekend, MMA betting online fans will be able to wager on a matchup that is getting more and more publicity as each day passes. The reason being that Werdum, former UFC Heavyweight Champion who will be facing Marcin Tybura this weekend, has gotten himself embroiled in a controversy starring Colby Covington, the UFC’s newest loud mouth. For those out of the loop, Covington recently faced Demian Maia at UFC Fight Night 119, an event held in Brazil. Since Covington was facing a Brazilian legend in his home country, the Brazilians were less than hospitable to the man taking on their hero. According to Covington, the Brazilians harassed, belittle and threw garbage towards the contender.

After picking up a decision victory over Maia, Covington used his time on the mic to let all of his hosts know exactly what he thought about them by calling them a bunch of ‘filthy animals’. Naturally, the UFC betting community had mixed feelings about this. Some chalked it up as Covington being a McGregor wannabe, while others were quick to call out some pretty questionable comments.

To wrap it up, Werdum recently bumped into Covington and there was obviously going to be some type of altercation. At the moment, it’s mostly hearsay but there was a video of the incident leaked.

While we can’t be sure who initiated the scuffle, we can be sure that this publicity plays directly into Werdum’s hands since he’ll be getting in the cage this upcoming Saturday night. However, this could very well distract Werdum from Tybura, a man not to be taken lightly. Let’s take a look at what kind of odds online sportsbooks are giving Werdum this weekend.
