You can hate him or love him but he brings attention wherever he goes. With his MAGA heat and UFC champion belt over his shoulder Colby Covington entered the building and the whole arena went crazy screaming “YOU SUCK”.
After the fight, at the press conference, Dana White said that even some of the fighters wanted to get into the fight with Covington. Security asked him to remove Colby from Arena because it could be trouble, but Dana did not had extra seat for him, so he went there to the area where most of the fighters were asking them to calm down.
Dana also said, whatever Colby is doing it moves the charts to the top, so he is unpopular but still very popular.
Colby Covington just walked in and this entire place erupted in boos. Nuclear heat. Never heard anything like that.

Colby Covington chegou com toda pose perto de Tyron Woodley, que se levantou e chamou o desafeto em tom de desafio. Então: O boné vermelho, encoberto, e sentadinho, é o Colby depois do chamado de Woodley. #ufc241nocombate pic.twitter.com/aOpje4vZoi

Wow, entire crowd starts chanting 'Colby Sucks' after they show Covington (@ColbyCovMMA) on the big screen. Stronger reaction to him than I would have guessed, honestly. It was loud and immediate. #UFC241 pic.twitter.com/EQBJ1AnBJG
