Colby Covington has claimed he knocked Jorge Masvidal out the last time they sparred at American Top Team.

Covington and Masvidal were long time teammates until very recently. ‘Chaos’ decided to leave the Miami based gym after becoming embroiled in several spats with teammates including Masvidal, Dustin Poirier, and Joanna J?drzejczyk.

Speaking after his loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 Masvidal appeared to rule out any possibility he would fight Covington next. ‘Chaos’ believes ‘Gamebred’ is avoiding a fight with him because the last time they sparred he was knocked out, he said.

“He has no chance to last five rounds with me, and he knows that deep down inside that I have a different level to my game than Marty Fakenewsman. He knows that deep down inside. That’s why he’s not gonna step in the octagon with me. Last time we trained, he got knocked out unconscious with a high kick. I faked a takedown, came up. So, he knows who his Daddy is. I’m Jorge Masvidal’s father. That is my son. I’m the King of Miami. I’m Miami’s King, and anybody can come get it. I ain’t gonna pick and choose easy fights and try and say who I’m gonna fight, I’m gonna take anybody, cause I’m the best in the world and that’s what the best in the world does.”

While Masvidal seems uninterested in fighting his old teammate the same can’t be said for Covington who wants the fight with ‘Street Jesus’ so bad he’d even do it for free, he explained.

“Dude, I’ll fight with that guy for free. That’s the easiest money fight I could ever get. We used to fight in the living room, in the bathroom, in American Top Team at the water fountain to see who’s gonna get the water first. But, of course, you know the father always goes before the son. So, you know I got my water first. But, dude, man, I’ll fight that guy for free. And it’s such an easy fight, dude. I don’t need any money to fight that guy. So, of course I’ll accept that fight. I wouldn’t be able to sign the contract before the ink dried, that’s how fast I’ll sign it. Of course, he’s already making excuses. He doesn’t want to come fight America’s champ, he doesn’t want to come fight Donald Trump’s favourite fighter. You know, he’s trying to bite off my stuff and act like he’s on the Trump train now. But before he was like, ‘oh, fuck that MAGA kid, fuck MAGA, Latinos, blah, blah, blah, all this bullshit’. And now he’s trying to jump on the bandwagon cause he knows Trumps are a bunch of winners. So, I just think that’s funny. It just shows how fake he is and exposes the coward that he is.”

Colby Covington has slammed welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman for his “pathetic” performance against Jorge Masvidal in the UFC 251 main event.

Usman picked up a unanimous decision win against Masvidal who stepped up on six days’ notice after Gilbert Burns was forced out of the 170lb title fight due to a positive coronavirus test. The fight itself was pretty lackluster. Usman controlled the bout up against the fence, attempted takedowns and land short strikes in the clinch for much of the bout.

Speaking to Submission Radio former title challenger Covington has ripped Usman for his performance against Masvidal, he said.

“The way the fight played out, I think UFC has a new name to it. It’s called the Ultimate Footsie Championships. So, it was a pathetic performance. It put me to sleep and it put all my friends to sleep as well. So, Marty Fakenewsman, just like I said, he’s boring as fuck and he had a shitty fighter in Street Judas to make it even more less entertaining.”

“I called it. Who called it? I said it was going to be a boring fight, that he was gonna ragdoll him, he was just gonna take him down and it was going to be boredom.”

“He’s playing footsies out there, it’s the Ultimate Footsies Championship. He’s stomping on his foot the whole time, just hugging him up against the cage, whispering stupid shit in Street Judas’ ear the whole time. I mean, who wants to see that shit? I feel bad for all the people that purchased their pay-per-view.”

Masvidal looked good in the wrestling exchanges and prevented Usman from taking him down for most of the fight at UFC 251. This is something Covington has taken confidence from should he rematch Usman, he explained.

“That’s why I’m a little upset that I didn’t wrestle him the first time, cause I know he’s not on my level wrestling. But I wanted to prove a point in that fight, I wanted to knock him out unconscious. But seeing that fight and how much he struggled to take down the Street Judas, I mean, that’s pathetic. Street Judas was taken down by lightweights, by featherweights, by bantamweights in Assuncao. He’s been beat by everybody under the moon with double digit losses, like 15 losses from people you’ve never heard of. The fact that Marty was struggling so much in the takedowns – and I’ve trained with Street Judas before, I know how bad he is with wrestling. You can blow wind at him and he’ll fall over and be taken down. So, to see Marty struggle so much, showed me how bad Marty is at wrestling. There’s a reason he was D-2 and I was D-1, and when I fight him in the next fight, he’s gonna be exposed and I’ll expose his wrestling.”

4 Ways Jorge Masvidal Can Beat Kamaru Usman at UFC 251
