Warlley Alves Calls For Rematch With Colby Covington, Following Latter’s Controversial Comments About Brazil
By FCF Staff
Warlley Alves already holds a victory over Colby Covington, but following the latter’s controversial comments about his nation of Brazil, the welterweight wants a rematch.
Alves and Covington fought back in 2015, and the Brazilian submitted the American with an opening round, guillotine choke. More recently, Covington outraged many throughout the MMA community, particularly Brazilian fans and fighters, by referring to the city of Sao Paulo as a “dump”, and Brazilian fans as “filthy animals”. Covington made the comments after he earned a decision win over Demia Maia.
Since then, Alves told MMA Fighting the following:
“I will beat him up. I want to beat him up,” Alves said. “He will try to take me down, I will stop his takedowns and punch him in the face. My hands will be raised in the end. I’ll have the Brazilian flag with me, and he will realize he can’t say what he said about Brazil.”
Most recently, Alves scored a decision win over Salim Touahri at UFC Fight Night 118 last month.
