UFC welterweight Colby Covington has pressed charges against Jorge Masvidal for breaking his $90,000 Rolex in the altercation the duo had outside the restaurant in Miami. Jorge Masvidal recently attacked Colby outside a restaurant in Miami while wearing a surgical mask and hoodie. The Miami Beach Police Department then opened an investigation into an alleged physical altercation between UFC fighters Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington following reports and the video of the incident that occurred Monday night outside a popular restaurant. Now according to the latest reports, Jorge Masvidal has been arrested.
According, to the latest Police reports, the officers responded to a battery call outside the restaurant at 10:54 p.m. local time. There, they met the “victim,” who fractured a tooth and suffered a wrist abrasion, alleging Masvidal ran up from his left and punched him twice in the face (once in the mouth and once on the left eye) upon leaving the restaurant. Masvidal allegedly said, “You shouldn’t have been talking about my kids.”
The victim which was Colby Covington described a group of “three or four other unknown males approaching him in an aggressive manner. Police said that, at that point, the victim “pushed one of the unknown makes away and separated himself from the attackers and ran back into the Papi Steak restaurant where he contacted police.”
