UFC Welterweight Colby Covington is one of the most controversial fighters in MMA today, and not only does he know it, but his agent does too.
That’s why Covington’s agent has hired armed security guards for him at all UFC events.
Convington told MMA Junkie:
Luckily, my agent, Dan Lambert, has all the money in the world. He’s already hired a full security guard team, (and) whenever I go to events or anything related to the UFC, I will have armed security guards with me.
Colby Convington is notorious in mixed martial arts for his harsh comments about Brazilians, once referring to them as “animals.”
Despite his notoriety, he has the skills to back up his words. Covington has only lost once in his professional MMA career, and he is currently riding a five-fight win streak.
He will be taking on former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos for the interim UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 225, scheduled to go down on June 9th.
