“All the s— he will have said leading up to that fight, I’ll talk to him when I beat the f— out of him in that Octagon,” Garry said Monday on “The MMA Hour.” “If Trump’s in attendance, I will drag Colby in front of Trump and I will beat the mouth off and say, ‘This is what you created. This is MAGA.’”

Garry vowed to “silence” Covington and “hit him so hard he never speaks again.” He predicted Covington would go back to Miami and “re-think his life choices.”
