Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has said in a tweet that other fighters from the welterweight division should refuse to fight Colby Covington.
UFC BMF Jorge Masvidal has been arrested for his recent attack on his arch-rival Colby Covington. Two days back, Jorge Masvidal attacked Colby Covington outside a Miami Restaurant. He was wearing a surgical mask and a hoodie and he landed two hard shots on Colby, one on his jaw and one on his teeth. The Miami Beach Police Department had 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.
The entire saga had started after Colby Covington commented about Masvidal’s ex-wife in the lead up to their fight at UFC 272.
