From best buddies and training partners to enemies, Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington’s personal relationship has gone sour. These days, the two fighters have nothing but tirades to throw at each other.
During the recent UFC Q&A fighter panel ahead of UFC 245, Covington once again put Masvidal on blast, as he now says they would likely cross paths next.
“As the people’s champion, I’d like to ask the people who they’d like to see me fight next,” he said. “Should it be journeyman Jorge Masvidal? Should it be GSP? Should it be (Khabib Nurmagomedov) ‘Kabob?’
“Looks like it’s going to be ‘Street Judas; Journeyman Jorge.’”
“Gamebred” was never a fan of Covington’s schtick from the get-go, which eventually led to their falling out. While not dropping any names, the “BMF” champion thought it would be fitting to remind “Chaos” about their past through a series of tweets.
Remember when I used to let you sleep on the couch? #hitemup you were crying cause those Brazilian girls punked you and I put you on. I fed you, clothed you and you sold out for 7 likes sad that’s all you got for a title fight. 13th disciple is a bitch #theresurrection— Jorge Masvidal UFC (@GamebredFighter) December 12, 2019

When tibau whooped your ass so hard in sparring and you came crying to me asking if it’s ok to be scared like a bitch? #thecrucifixion— Jorge Masvidal UFC (@GamebredFighter) December 12, 2019
Masvidal also went on to reveal where Covington’s persona likely came from.
