UFC strawweight Polyana Viana has been suspended from Twitter following a recent comment about Colby Covington.
Viana picked up a 47-second knockout victory over Jinh Yu Frey at this past Saturday’s UFC Vegas 64 event. Following the big win, Viana took to her Twitter page to post a comment about UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington.
“Colby wanted me to finger him in the a**, but I did not want to. He got upset!” she wrote.
The Twitter post immediately went viral and shocked the MMA community. Almost three days later and Viana appears to have been suspended from the popular social media platform. Polyana’s Twitter biography, as well as every post on her page, has been changed to say the following “@Polyanavianaa ‘s account is temporarily unavailable because it violates the Twitter Media Policy. https://Learn more .”
The comment comes after some history between the pair. Viana and Covington used to be teammates and allegedly spent time together outside of the gym. In a Spring 2021 interview, Covington made some derogatory comments which led to the feud.
“There wasn’t much talks [for the Edwards fight]. I was busy, balls deep in Polyana Viana, so to get me off the couch on three weeks’ notice to fight some Leon guy, it was going to have to be a price tag.” Covington said of Viana.
