For years Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington have been considered as one of the biggest duos in MMA. They train together at ATT and have had a close friendship for a long time. This friendship appeared to flip on it’s head as of late, with Covington trash talking “Gamebred” on Twitter.
Another Teammate Dustin Poirier called Colby a sell out following his heartbreaking loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Jorge went on Ariel Helwanis show yesterday and responded to all the drama. He responded by saying this:
“He knows what f—king gym I’m at and when I’m f—king there. Actually maybe he doesn’t know. I could be at the gym tomorrow, Thursday, whenever you want Colby I can be at the f—king gym and whatever incidents you’re having we can talk about it like f—king men.”
“He had to tell Dana White that I was trying to assault him [at UFC 241]. Dana White came over to me like we’re in kindergarten talking about, ‘don’t give out no three piece and a soda.’ I go, ‘what the f—k are you talking about, Dana?’ He goes, ‘Colby’s telling me you’re trying to f—king assault him. You can’t do that.’ I go, ‘man that’s guys such a b—ch.’ Let’s talk like men. Why are you online doing all this s—t? For a like, for a follow, a fan? That’s how low your soul is?” Masvidal continued.
“Two weeks ago he’s saying I’m his best friend. I haven’t said none of that s—t in a while because this motherf—ker did some s—t I didn’t like to somebody that I adore, and that’s my coach. So since then we haven’t been cool. This dude needs to slow down. He knows better than most who the f—k I am,” Masvidal assured. “So I’ll be at the gym, Colby, if you’re hearing this you little b—ch, cause you will. He acts like he’s not sensitive at all but he’s the most sensitive dude I’ve ever met. He cries when he reads comments.”
Masvidal takes on Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC 244 in Madison Square Garden. Covington expects to challenge Kamaru Usman for the title later on this year or early next year.
