UFC contender Colby Covington has indicated that Lil’ Wayne will perform “The Sky Is The Limit” as he walks out to fight Kamaru Usman in November.
“I’m definitely going to be having Lil’ Wayne walk me out. My boy, little Weezy. He’s my favorite rapper,” Colby Covington said during a recent interview.
“Yes, little Weezy, my favorite artist and rapper growing up. He’s the best rapper alive. He should be the president. He’s such a great person, has such smart philosophies and ideas, but he’s going to be walking me out, and we’re going to be walking out to ‘Sky is the limit, the limit’. You know, cause the sky is the limit.”
Covington is expected to fight Kamaru Usman at Madison Square Garden this fall for the welterweight title. The two previously fought in December 2019, but Usman was able to stop Covington in the fifth round. After winning three more fights, Usman is expected to enter the fight as a heavy favorite.
We talk about Kanye but Lil Wayne ain't too far behind. Walking out a UFC fighter with a MAGA gimmick against a Black man?
Remember, this is what Lil Wayne said about #BlackLivesMatter:
"Don’t come at me with that dumb shit, ma’am. My life matter, especially to my bitches." https://t.co/tLd0UbRlHb
