Colby Covington referred to UFC Fight Night 178 opponent Tyron Woodley as a "domestic terrorist sympathizer" in an Instagram post Thursday night.
UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz supported Covington in a reply Friday, calling Woodley a "terrorist":
Woodley spent his entire press conference for the fight by answering every question with the phrase "Black Lives Matter" while wearing a red hat that read "Make Racists Catch The Fade Again," a play on the "Make Again Great Again" hats worn by supporters of President Donald Trump.
Covington is a Trump supporter and Ortiz has received support from the Trump family as he's tried to jump-start his own political career.
Woodley is a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and told Ben Fowlkes of The Athletic he understands his outspoken opponent is trying to create a political-based storyline around their fight.
