‘Chaos’ Covington laid into Masvidal when he described training with him at ATT. He also was confident that a potential bout would play out much to his favor.

“You know we sparred 100 plus rounds and he’s never made it out of round 1. I honestly don’t see him making it out of round 1. He’s got no heart, he’s got no knockout power. I mean he has lighting in a bottle”.

“Everyone knows he can’t wrestle. He got upside down triangles by Toby Imada, he got beat up by lightweights, featherweight, and Bantamweights. I mean he got beat up by Assuncao, a little 35 pounder”.

Covington went on to say, “The guy has been beaten every single way possible. The guy is a jobber. Everyone knows when we train together, they give me him when I need easy rounds. After I’ve gone like 10 rounds and then it’s his first round, that’s when I go with him. I give him any type of advantage and it’s still not enough”.
