And sharing his thoughts on Colby Covington’s comments, Serra-Longo MMA head coach, Ray Longo hit out at the former, labelling him and his display as “atrocious”.

“I got absolutely no use for the guy (Colby Covington), at all,” Ray Longo said on the Anik-Florian Podcast. “I just don’t. Ever since he threatened you (Jon Anik), he knows where you live, he can go f*ck himself. Couldn’t give a sh*t about that guy. What he did with Leon Edwards I think is atrocious. You know, there’s promoting a fight, then there’s being a total misfit in life and that’s the way I see it with that guy.”

“…And, man, talk about karma, because what a piece of sh*t that fight was,” Longo explained. “I mean, the guy did absolutely nothing. And to be able to take a pro-Colby crowd, and by the end of the fight have the crowd against you – good luck, man man. I hope it was worth the money, the extra 25 percent… I think he cost (Donald) Trump the election, how about that? ‘Oh, Mr. President, Mr. President is here to watch me. Who do you got? The Queen of England.’ This motherf*cker called somebody a dope? I’d love to see this guy’s f*cking college transcripts. He’s a f*cking moron.”
