Earlier this week UFC BMF Champion Jorg Masvidal was arrested for allegedly hitting an ex-teammate and friend Colby Covington in front of a steakhouse in Miami, Florida. Masvidal, 37, has pleaded not guilty to the aggravated battery but reportedly fractured Covington’s tooth and damaged his Rolex during the encounter.
The former street fighter-turned-UFC BMF champion is said to have been waiting covington outside the infamous Papi Steak Restaurant while ‘Chaos’ was filming with the one podcast Carnation guys. After Covington exited the restaurant, Masvidal, who was reportedly wearing a blue surgical mask and hoodie, approached Covington and landed two punches in his face. By 2020, Covington and the former interim lightweight champion were teammates. However, Dustin Poirier lobbied his friend Jorge Masvidal and condemned Colby’s choice of words.
Colby Covington on Dustin Poirier’s family
Colby Covington explained his beef as he didn’t have any beef with him Dustin Poirier until Poirier spoke out against him. He brought up the incidents when The Diamond publicly stated that he would attack Colby “on-sight.” During the podcast, Colby Covington opened up about why he doesn’t think parenting Dustin Poirier’s family members is a bad move. The King of Miami said:
“That’s the thing, I don’t think there’s a line with that when you reveal that self and put that self out there. For someone like Dustin who openly puts his wife first and says he’s a good father and this and that, that’s what he portrays. He uses them as props. If you use someone as a prop, I can say something about them.”
