Kamaru Usman humbles MAGA 'studio gangster' Colby Covington

UFC 245's welterweight title fight tonight is between champion Kamaru Usman and challenger Colby Covington. Covington's loud, divisive and abrasive Donald Trump-supporting character isn't real. At risk of being offloaded by the UFC, Covington developed the pro wrestling type character and has become a draw because of it. The political spin has added to the fight's drawing power. Some will cheer for the 'MAGA' white Covington because they support Trump. Others will cheer for Usman because he is 'against' Trump and black.
Kamaru Usman sent a bloodied Colby Covington to the ground for a second time and then leaped on him to work on his badly injured face. He battered his dazed opponent with hammer fists until the referee mercifully intervened. Covington, in Trump-like fashion blamed the referee for his loss. Instead of congratulating his heart (he sustained a broken jaw in round 3) many gloated about his deserved comeuppance.
