Fabricio Werdum tired of trash talk culture with Conor McGregor copycats

SYDNEY – Former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum has a main event on his hands this weekend, but everyone’s talking about an altercation he had with a guy 70 pounds below him.

Werdum (22-7-1 MMA, 10-4 UFC) fights Marcin Tybura (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in the UFC Fight Night 121 main event on Saturday. But Wednesday, he ran into UFC welterweight Colby Covington (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) in Sydney, and things got ugly.

In the buildup to his recent fight against Demian Maia in Brazil, Covington put himself out there as MMA’s latest infamous Brazilian insulter. After he beat Maia, his verbal assaults continued.

Werdum is Brazilian. When Covington allegedly had some insults to lob, Werdum lobbed back, both verbally … and with a boomerang. (They’re in Australia, after all.)

“The guys think you can say whatever you want, and it’s not like that,” Werdum told MMAjunkie after a Wednesday workout session for the media. “He didn’t respect Brazil his last fight. He said a lot of bad things, and it’s not good.”

UFC Fight Night 121 takes place Sunday (but airs live on Saturday in North America due to the time difference) at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. It airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Werdum thinks a lot of this trash talk culture comes from UFC lightweight
