The guys a gimmick, he's doing what he needs to do to get to the top and its his commitment to the gimmick thats won me over this past year.

I don't think it's all a gimmick, he is a fan of Trump, and he is a douchebag Conservative type.

Jordan Breen's article on Covington infers that it isn't a gimmick. Full article here - https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2019/8/5/20754091/on-offense-and-offensiveness-ufc-espn-5-editorial-colby-covington-matt-hughes-train-comments-trash



He’s always been a wild child. He lettered one year at Iowa Central Community College’s* wrestling program before being booted for disciplinary issues. He got hit with a fourth-degree assault charge, with a blood alcohol level of 0.255, over three times the legal limit. Like Alfred E. Neuman – “What, me worry?” – he just transferred closer to home, enrolled at Oregon State University, and won a Pac-10 wrestling title.




Colby Covington isn’t a gimmick. He truly, really, actually believes all of this, and has no compunction about saying anything that floats through his brain—or whatever soul he may have.

Combat sports breeds all kinds of strange bedfellows, some of whom we might not to want to share any space with. But Colby Covington has taken things to another level. That level is hate. And all of us snowflakes just gotta try to not melt over it.

Yeah, he's not playing a character as an actor would in a movie, what he's doing is the old "crank up the personality to full blast" when the cameras are on. He's not going to be as loud and crazy in everyday life as he is on camera, but he's more than likely a proper arsehole.
