Colby Covington posts Avengers ‘Infinity War’ spoilers because he’s a terrible human being

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender, Colby Covington, desperately wants to be known as the bad boy of the 170-pound division. Instead, he’s cemented himself as a terrible human being.

Since “Chaos” likes to dabble in pro wrestling, we can put this into terms he might understand. There’s heat ... and then there’s “X-Pac” heat. It’s one thing to be the villain, it’s another thing to be universally reviled for being awful.

His latest transgression comes by way of movie spoilers. Avengers “Infinity War” came out last night and it’s chock full of surprises, plot twists, and superhero deaths. Covington was kind enough to post them all on social media.

While it’s no fun to have the movie spoiled, it might almost be worth it just to read the comments on his Twitter page. Safe to say most comic book nerds will be rooting for Rafael dos Anjos when the Brazilian fights Covington in the UFC 225 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event on June 9 in Chicago.
