Last month, UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, his manager Ali Abdelaziz, and Colby Covington got into a scuffle at a Las Vegas casino buffet. The incident took place after Usman’s welterweight title win at UFC 235, which Covington was in town for. Covington caused quite the stir that week, and was able to get UFC President Dana White to guarantee him the next title opportunity.
TMZ has now released some new footage from the scuffle. Things start out with Usman seemingly trying to persuade Abdelaziz to not go after Covington in the buffet line. His attempts were unsuccessful, and all hell broke loose. All three men were banned from the hotel after the incident.
Check out the new footage here:
Things between these three likely aren’t over. Once Usman and Covington is officially announced, they will certainly cross paths again. Abdelaziz has been very vocal about his dislike for Covington, and “Chaos” isn’t one to bite his tongue either. It will certainly be interesting to see how things play out between them as their eventual fight approaches.
