Colby Covington is never far away when it comes time to fire back at one of his detractors.
Case in point on Tuesday when former heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum was flagged by USADA for a potential violation of the UFC’s anti-doping policy.
Of course Werdum has history with Covington after the two were involved in an altercation in Australia late last year that ended with the Brazilian throwing a boomerang at the interim welterweight title contender.
Following news of Werdum being flagged by USADA, Covington was quick to pounce on a response.
“Why am I not surprised that a slime bag like Fabricio Werdum is on the juice and pissed hot?! You do the crime you do the time, you FILTHY ANIMAL!” Covington wrote on Twitter.

Covington has been rather outspoken in his disdain towards Brazilians over the past year, especially after his win over Demian Maia last year.
Following his victory, Covington addressed the Brazilian crowd as ‘filthy animals’ while calling the country a ‘dump’ during his post fight speech.
Covington hasn’t let up on his assault on the country with an upcoming fight against Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos scheduled for June 9 in Chicago at UFC 225.
Obviously Covington never misses a chance to take a shot at a former rival as he proved on Tuesday with his post about Werdum.
