Dana White keeps Leon Edwards away from Colby Covington

[

LAS VEGAS – UFC 296 takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena and on Friday all 24 fighters including its headliners paired off and squared off one last time before fists fly.

During Friday’s ceremonial weigh-ins at MGM Grand Garden Arena, UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards (21-3 MMA, 13-2 UFC) and Colby Covington (17-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) squared off – again, with a heavy security presence.

While trash talk has long flowed between the two top welterweights, things were taken to a new level when Covington took a verbal dig at Edwards’ deceased father during Thursday’s pre-fight news conference. The insult caused Edwards to become irate, as he chucked a water bottle at Covington’s head before security intervened.

Check out the Edwards vs. Covington ceremonial weigh-in faceoff in the video above.
