Jorge Masvidal on a possible truce with Colby Covington
Masvidal recently appeared at the UFC 272 post-fight press conference, where he answered some questions from the media. During the session, Masvidal was asked if he expected Covington to possibly try to settle the dispute after the fight.
while you reply, Masvidal showed that something like that has no chance, because the two fighters know each other very well. Masvidal expressed that Covington will not take a chance to get close to him where he can beat him again. Masvidal stated that he had no respect for Covington because he slandered his children and his religion.
“He knows me inside and out, you know he would never dare. He wouldn’t come near me under any circumstances or anything like that. He wouldn’t give himself up to a chance for me to bust his ass again. Mostly because he talked about my kids… he does what he does. I can’t respect him in any way‘ Masvidal said.
It’s not impossible to expect covington to forget everything and show respect to his opponents. In his last fight with world welterweight champion Kamaru Usman At UFC 268, the fighter had a conversation with Usman. In that conversation, Covington told the Nigerian Nightmare that all the trash talk was just to sell the pay-per-view and nothing else. But something like this might not happen between Masvidal and Covington as unlike other rivalries, this is extremely real and dangerous.
