Few years in the past, Jorge masvidal and Colby Covington had been pals. Training companions with the American Top Team (ATT), the 2 males accompanied one another till the fights. Their relationship has since deteriorated and due to heavy tensions with the opposite ATT members, Covington had to go away the room for good.
In an interview with ESPN, Jorge Masvidal returned to the time when he was temporarily excluded: “Colby is that type of individual and I at all times say that, after I see him, it is a free pay-per-view. He is aware of that and that is why he used to make movies saying ‘this man is unprofessional, and he tried to combat me on the streets’. I used to be kicked out of the fitness center for trying to assault him as soon as. “
“I used to go to locations he frequented rather a lot and the police would name me. I do know lots of people suppose, ‘man you are an fool, you are an expert fighter, why would you do this?’ Because I would like to and nobody tells me what to do. It’s extra about loyalty to me. You cannot do one thing unhealthy to somebody I like, it simply will not occur. “
On April 24, at UFC 261, Jorge Masvidal faces Kamaru Usman, for the latter’s welterweight title. Winner of Tyron Woodley in September 2020, Colby Covington has not fought since.
