    Colby isn't selling tickets so I'm assuming all of his pandering to the president and his fanbase isn't paying off. Ergo the MAGA hat wearing fucks must be outside of the mainstream mma audience that would tune in to watch him fight for free.

    If he wins the title and the president keeps tweeting him his popularity will grow. If he was exciting it already would have. IMO

    I'm just not sure the crossover is there. Look at us for example. 90% of us here hate trump and despise colby as a byproduct.

    We are a unique community in that respect. I dislike Trump, but wish we had some more of the other side. I know those fans are out there, they just aren’t here.

    Let's not go crazy when comparing twitter followers. You know it's possible to BUY followers. I would say the least likely to do so in that list would be Nate Diaz and he has by far the biggest.

    There is a place you can check this you know

    The only trumpers I know that watch mma do so at sports bars and contribute more to alcoholism than ratings and buy rates.

    Maybe the disconnect is that the majority IS anti trump but he turned them off from watching his fights?

    I'm not sure really. Just spitballing ideas as to why controversy didnt create cash in this instance. Especially with such high profile subject matter.

    Maybe Covington is so unlikeable it crosses demographics and political parties. Maybe this is what our country needs to unite it. A mutual need for Covington to get KTFO.

    I know I need to see it. Not just knocked out but broken down and finished khabib/Conor style.

    I wish someone close to him made a 5 minute documentary on how the hell he got here. It's been like watching a train crash in slow motion for months. What in the hell is he thinking?

    Anybody hear Jorge's interview where he says Colby ripped off his coach. Apparently there's been bad blood for a while.

    Colby Covington loyal to ATT, but acknowledges he might have to leave
    Jorge Masvidal says Colby Covington ‘didn’t pay’ his coach which started beef

    Would be awesome if the UFC cut him and he had to go to Bellator and fight for 16/16!

    I feel like the Masvidal/Colby beef is just a work to stir up interest in the potential match up. When Masvidal said they hadn't spoken in about a year or so it confirmed it for me cuz after Masvidal ko'd Askren, Colby was in the back and gave him a hug when Masvidal walked backstage.
