Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal recently had a match in which Covington was better and eventually won. Previously, a few months ago, Colby Covington had called out Jorge Masvidal and used harsh words at the expense of his family, and seemed ready to do anything to provoke Masvidal.
It was an additional motivation for Masvidal in the ring, but it was as if the 'pressure' destroyed him, and that due to strong desire he could not show his full potential and what he really can. Covington likes to 'play mentally' with his opponents, and this time Covington's tactics turned out to be successful.
However... Jorge Masvidal did not forget all those harsh words that Covington addressed to him, and there was an incident in a bar in Miami. Colby Covington was sitting at a bar with a friend. After a few moments, Masvidal appeared, after which there was a fight between the two of them.
TMZ came across the video, which shows Covington and the police officers around him.
According to available information, Jorge Masvidal gave Covington two punches, and Covington lost his tooth.

Masvidal was arrested last night, and could now find himself in big trouble, as he faces a hard prison sentence, which could be as long as 10 to 15 years.
This case could seriously damage Jorge's career. The 37-year-old fighter is certainly on a downward trajectory with three consecutive defeats, but the question is what impact the court ruling will have on his career.
'' My case is open and so I shouldn't talk about it yet, but I guess what you're referring to. I’m in conflict with another fighter right now and I can’t talk much about it. If we could postpone the license decision, that would be great.
I would like to say that I am honored to be licensed in Nevada. I have been fighting in Las Vegas for over 10 years. Everyone knows that it is the main martial arts city in the world, and this is the most organized commission in the world.
I’ve fought all over the world, and promoters and fighters are nowhere as good as Las Vegas. It would be my dream to get a license in Vegas still, '' Masvidal told the commission.
