Massive shockwaves were sent into the world of MMA and the entire combat sports community as well when popular UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal brutally and shockingly knocked out the former Bellator MMA and ONE Championship welterweight champion Ben Askren. It should be noted that Askren is a close friend and training partner of the former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, whereas Masvidal is the best friend and a long time training partner of the former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington. It should also be noted that there is some serious animosity between Covington and Woodley as well.
Thus, when recently photos of Woodley and Masvidal hanging out together surfaced on Twitter, everyone was curious to know what exactly might be going on. Woodley was quick to clarify that he was present to promote a brand there and so was Masvidal, and everything was strictly professional. However, that did not stop Covington from taking a sarcastic shot at Askren and Woodley. He posted Masvidal and Woodley’s picture and captioned it saying that both him and Ben need new friends.
Woodley again was quick to counter and threw verbal insults and shots at Covington. Below are the tweets by both Covington and Woodley:
