Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington had a brief confrontation at UFC 241 last year, which marked the beginning of the former friends’ falling out with one another.

The UFC had to separate them and switch up their seats. Nobody knew what Masvidal and Covington had said to one another during their confrontation in California. However, Masvidal recently did a special interview with Submission Radio, and revealed exactly what happened, and why UFC president Dana White had to come speak with him.

“Dana definitely did have a talk with me. I mean, (Tyron) Woodley was a witness to it, my manager was a witness to it,” Masvidal said. “There was rumors. Max Holloway was right next to me. And I see Colby there, and he’s been talking shit already for months online about me, about teammates. I go, hey, let’s talk like men, address me like a man. Mind you, he had just said that he called me and told me, hey, do a flying knee for the Ben Askren fight.

“Then when we start fighting he said we haven’t talked in two years. The guy’s just a habitual liar, and I’d love to just put it out there now. So, he hasn’t talked to me in about a year and a half, though he’s telling everyone he just talked to me to give that Ben Askren thing, and then you’re saying all this stupid shit. I go, hey, let me talk to you, man. He goes, ‘man, be a professional’, and he turns around.

“I go, yo, let me fucking talk to you, stop talking shit online, I can’t hear nothing, let’s go outside and talk. And he said, that’s cool bro, I’m a fucking pro, I’m not going to be doing that, and he just kind of turned his back and starts kind of walking away, like, gets a little further for me. I said, alright, whatever. Before I know it, Dana White’s calling me over here trying to be funny – ‘Masvidal, I don’t need you giving out no three pieces and a soda’.

“I go, fuck, what’re you talking about, man? I’m just here watching the fights, what are you talking about? He goes, ‘I got Colby over here telling me you’re trying to fuck him up, don’t do nothing’. Alright, fucking snitch.”

Covington would go on to challenge Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title at UFC 245, losing a fifth-round TKO to “The Nigerian Nightmare” after having his jaw broken. Masvidal just wrapped up a tremendous 2019, and is looking to kick-off 2020 with a bang.

What do you think about Masvidal’s comments on what happened with Covington at UFC 241?

Anthony Pettis Suing USADA Over Hand Injury Before UFC 241

Anthony Pettis reveals that he was fighting “compromised” against Nate Diaz at UFC 241.

Anthony Pettis reveals that he was fighting “compromised” against Nate Diaz at UFC 241.

Pettis spoke on “The Ariel Helwani MMA Show” this week, and revealed he’s suing the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after suffering a cut during their testing process before fighting Diaz. USADA requested a second test sample from him before the fight after his first was too diluted, due to recent rehydration. Pettis waited over an hour to provide the second sample, and was cut by the edge of the bottle. “Showtime” said he had to fight like an “amateur” against Diaz. (H/T MMA Fighting)

”I had to fight compromised,” Pettis said. “I gave USADA a chance to make it right, but right now, we’re going through the court. I’ve got to sue them.”

“Showtime” has hired anti-doping attorney Howard Jacobs to represent him, as he has represented the likes of Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar in the past. Pettis’ manager, Abe Kawa, has also revealed that both the UFC and bottle manufacturers are being named in the suit. The decision to sue USADA came after representatives allegedly stopped responding to his team. Both USADA and California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) head Andy Foster have declined comment.

Pettis went on to lose to Diaz via unanimous decision, despite pleas from his longtime coach, Duke Roufus, not to go through with the fight.

”I wish he wouldn’t have fought, because it showed in his performance, unfortunately,” Roufus said. “Here’s the thing, when it happened, it affects you making a fist and also affects you grappling, because you need your thumb to grab things.”

Anthony Pettis Admits He Was ‘A Little Down’ After Nate Diaz Loss

Anthony Pettis hasn’t had a win streak since 2014. That didn’t change last year when he fought Nate Diaz at 170 pounds in the UFC 241 co-main event.

Anthony Pettis hasn’t had a win streak since 2014. That didn’t change last year when he fought Nate Diaz at 170 pounds in the UFC 241 co-main event.

Pettis was bested by the Stockton native after three rounds of fighting, and was nearly finished in the contest as well. Now, Pettis is gearing up to make his return to action at lightweight against Carlos Diego Ferreira. The action all goes down from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 18 at UFC 246.

“Showtime” spoke to UFC News prior to the matchup, and was asked about his loss to Diaz last August. Pettis admits that he was “a bit down” after the defeat, but is ready to bounce back next week. (H/T MMA Junkie)

“I don’t make excuses,” Pettis said. “Diaz fought his ass off, great fight. I hit him with some big shots, he took them. I did get a little down after the Diaz fight, like, ‘What the heck’s next,’ and, ‘What the heck is happening,’ and I just went back to having fun. I’m blessed.

“I’m blessed to come in here and do this job, and it’s not like I get paid more to be on the main event or co-main from these guys, so for me, it’s like, whoever’s next is next.”

Now, he’ll take on Ferreira, who will certainly test Pettis’ ground game should the contest find its way to the mat. But with submission wins over the likes of Michael Chiesa and Charles Oliveira, perhaps Pettis isn’t too worried about the grappling exchanges after all.

Daniel Cormier’s recent loss hurt everyone at American Kickboxing Academy, including UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Cormier appeared to be on his way to winning his UFC 241 rematch with Stipe Miocic earlier this month. However, Miocic persevered and went on to knock Cormier out in the fourth round to regain the heavyweight title.

Things were made worse when Cormier’s father passed away a few days later. It only added to what were a couple of days to forget for everyone at AKA.

“When DC loses, it was a very sad moment for us,” Nurmagomedov said during the UFC 242 media conference call (via MMA Fighting). “Same time, Cain Velasquez lost his mother and after a couple of days, DC lost his father. It was a little bit hard week for all AKA team but it is what it is. When God wants something, nobody can change this. Losing the belt is nothing when you lose your father or mother. When you lose belt, of course DC is sad but when you lose your father, it’s completely different.

“We feel bad for him but we know how DC is a competitor, how DC is strong. I want to wish him good luck. We just talked with him a couple of days ago. We talked with him about my fight, we talk about his fight, about his father, but I just try to give him good energy. Right now he’s having a hard time in his life but time changes everything. I know he’s going to be good.”

Many wondered if Cormier would ponder retirement following the loss. For Nurmagomedov’s part, he hopes “DC” decides against it and fights Miocic one more time.

“I really want him to fight with Stipe Miocic rematch and finish his career,” Nurmagomedov added. “This is what I want.

“I don’t know about his plan but honestly I want him to fight maybe February or March, fight with him last fight and then finish.”

What do you think Cormier will do?
