UFC London results - Masvidal knocks Till out in second round

Jorge Masvidal blasts Colby Covington after UFC 268, says he will ‘burn’ MMA Masters soon

Jorge Masvidal isn’t too happy with Colby Covington calling him out, as he took to social media to blast the former interim welterweight champion.

After Covington lost a very close decision to Kamaru Usman at UFC 268 on Saturday in Madison Square Garden, he said he wanted to fight Masvidal next. He believes the fight makes sense as the two are rivals and former roommates who now do not get a long.

“I think the most logical step is the heated rivalry with me and my old roommate Street Judas Masvidal,” Covington said at his UFC 268 post-fight scrum. “He should probably pull out of that fight with Leon Scott (Leon Edwards) and we should just run it. Let’s run it in the first quarter of the first part of the year, and let’s do it, man. That’s a heated rivalry. He talks so much sh*t in the media and said so many things about me. Look at what happened when he fought Marty (Usman).

“He got dusted. If he fought me, he would get dusted even worse and it wouldn’t be competitive. I just want to hold these people accountable for the way they run their mouth in the media, and it makes sense,” Covington continued about Masvidal. “If he goes ahead with that Leon Scott fight, then Hunter Campbell, I just pray to you, please God, don’t cut him after that third loss in a row. Save him around and let me be the one that ends his career.”

Now, after Colby Covington called out Jorge Masvidal, “Gamebred” responded saying “Chaos” will burn MMA Masters and won’t pay the coaches either.

“2021-2022 prediction: Colby burns MMA master like he has every gym and every coach he ever had by not paying and talking shit on the way out. Rinse wash repeat,” Masvidal wrote on Twitter.

He then added another tweet that he will be exposing the fake soon.

There’s no question a fight between Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington would be massive. Regardless of whether or not Masvidal beats Edwards at UFC 269.
