The former interim welterweight champion said, “I was actually hanging out with Jorge Masvidal’s legal wife and the mother of his two children. We were just chatting and catching up, taking a trip down memory lane…”

“The only reason I wanted to fight Street Judas Masvidal is because it’s a serious beef. I hate the guy and he hates me…he’s walking around like he’s the king of Miami. He’s a piece of sh*t person. He cheated on his wife, he cheated on his kids, he lies to his kids.”

“I’m exposing him for the fakeness that he is. He talks about being a great father and caring about his kids. He doesn’t care about his kids. I was just talking to his wife yesterday who he’s still legally married to, and we had a great chat. He doesn’t care about his kids, he’s actually putting them through turmoil right now, he’s making their lives miserable. I feel bad he’s stressing out his wife and his kids, he’s a piece of sh*t person.”

Following Colby Covington’s recent comments, it’s a foregone conclusion that the UFC will target a fight between the aforementioned fighters. Should Jorge Masvidal pull off the upset win over Kamaru Usman, fans will be excited to see the two ex-teammates fight for the strap.
