Weird things happen all of the time in mixed martial arts, but we hit peak MMA with an altercation between Fabricio Werdum and Colby Covington on Wednesday night.
The UFC heavyweight and UFC welterweight were involved in an incident outside of the fighter hotel.
In the video above, which is filled with a racist, homophobic NSFW rant, you can see the altercation go inside as Covington continues to jaw at Werdum, who is standing by the entrance. But what was not immediately known was what led to the altercation.
As it turns out, the two mixed things up outside with a boomerang coming in to play.
According to people at the hotel in Sydney, Covington called Werdum a “filthy Brazilian,” which set the heavyweight off. The two men then jawed back and forth before Werdum pulled out a boomerang and threw it at Covington’s head. The two men were then separated.

The incident comes after Covington berated the Brazilian crowd after defeating Demian Maia in his last fight.
