As reported by mmafighting Colby “Chaos” Covington 13-1 MMA (8-1 UFC) and Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum 22-7-1 MMA (10-4 UFC) were caught on video in a very tense situation.
Werdum is scheduled to face Marcin “Tybur” Tubura 16-2 MMA (3-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 121 on November 18th in Sydney. The video took place at a hotel in Sydney, Australia and was captured by UFC’s Dan Hooker. It appears to show a boomerang being thrown by Werdum that hits Covington.

Covington has his own video in which he accuses Werdum of hitting him.
UFC released this statement:
” The UFC was made aware of the altercation between Fabricio Werdum and Colby Covington at the organization’s host hotel in Sydney, Australia.” “The organization will conduct a full investigation to determine if the Athlete Conduct Policy was violated before taking any further action on this matter.”

Will this have any implications on Werdums main event bout this weekend?
