Covington: If I see Masvidal on the street, ‘I’m gonna drop him on his f-cking head’

“He’s gonna get put on the concrete, I’m gonna drop him on his f*ckin’ head and put stitches in the back of his head.”

Jorge Masvidal might be the ‘BMF’ champ but Colby Covington has warned the 35-year-old that he will ‘drop him on his f-cking head’ if he comes across ‘Gamebred’ on the street, which is a likely possibility considering both men train at American Top Team (ATT).

Speaking to Mike Heck in a recent interview, ‘Chaos’ confirmed that he and Masvidal are still avoiding each other at ATT and that it’s only a matter of time until their rivalry spills onto the street.

“Me and Street Judas are 100 percent gonna fight before it’s all said and done,” Covington said of his ex-friend and roommate (h/t Alexander K. Lee). “We might fight a couple of times, because if I see him in the street, it’s gonna be a fade session. He’s gonna get put on the concrete, I’m gonna drop him on his f*ckin’ head and put stitches in the back of his head. It’s not gonna be nice, I promise you that.

“And he knows that, deep down inside he knows. But he’s willing to take a paycheck in the UFC to get his ass whupped because he knows the UFC is gonna pay his f*cking medical bills. Besides that, if we fight on the street, I’m gonna drop him on his f*cking head, and he’s never gonna be the same person again because he’s gonna be concussed, the concrete’s gonna mess with him. I’ll probably kick his teeth in, too, while I’m at it.”

Covington then explained why Masvidal still hasn’t fought Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title despite both men’s mutual interest in the matchup.

“You remember at the Super Bowl when they tried to manufacture that fake hype?” he said. “They pushed each other at the Super Bowl. Come on, what was that, in February? If they wanted to fight, they would have fought. Let’s be honest, that was February. February, March, April, May, that’s four months.

“You’re telling me all that manufactured hype, ‘Oh, we’re gonna fight each other. ‘Marty Fakenewsman’ vs. ‘Street Judas’ Masvidal for the world title,’ which everybody knows is the fake title, it’s the corrupt title, because I was cheated out of the real title and everybody knows I’m the real champ. If they wanted to fight, they would have fought. But they don’t want to fight. Marty’s looking for that easy payday. I don’t blame him, keep looking.”

Covington has also vowed to expose Masvidal for ‘dining and dashing on single mothers’ and preying on the vulnerable, labelling his teammate ‘the lowest scum denominator of earth’.

“Just ‘cause he’s a piece of s*it,” Covington said of Masvidal. “The guy’s claiming he’s the ‘sucker punch king.’ He’s claiming for being out at Denny’s and being the ‘dine and dash king.’ Dude, you’re a piece of s*it. You’re dining and dashing on single mothers that are working at Denny’s because they’re trying to put food on the table for their child and you’re bragging about being proud of dining and dashing on them? The guy’s the lowest scum denominator of earth.

“He’s the fakest piece of s*it. He turned his back on me for money and his management team. People are going to find out the real truth about him, he’s gonna get exposed soon. I know so much about him and it doesn’t make sense to come out yet. When we fight, it will all be built up in the fight. Until then, he’s just gonna keep being that fake piece of sh*t.”

Covington hasn’t fought since his title loss to Usman at UFC 245, which saw Usman TKO Covington in the fifth round to retain his welterweight title. The bout earned Fight of the Night honors and was considered one of the most entertaining title fights of 2019.
