Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington were involved in an alleged altercation at a Miami restaurant


Just weeks after facing each other at UFC 272, Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington got into an alleged altercation outside a restaurant in Miami Beach, Fla.

Multiple sources have confirmed that MMA Fighting was involved in an incident which ended with officers responding to the restaurant. However, it does not appear that any arrests were made.

Afte the incident, TMZ got video of Covington being surrounded by cops while speaking with Bob Menery, a member of The Nelk Boys. Menery has been a frequent guest at UFC events.

In the video, Covington can be heard saying “how would he know I’m here?,” which seemingly references Masvidal.

Menery posted video of Covington earlier in the evening while they were eating dinner. The altercation outside took place before Menery.

Miami Beach Police has not yet commented on the matter.

Fox Sports 640 radio personality Andy Slater first reported news of the incident on Monday night via Twitter.

After the altercation happened, Masvidal released a video on Twitter where he appeared to address the situation.

“Call it the “show your face challenge”, Masvidal stated. What’s the matter? I am from Dade county. You talk that s*** you’ve got to back it up. That’s how my city rolls.”

Masvidal also linked to another account on Instagram for a friend who was apparently with him with the altercation happened. Suleiman Yousef wrote a note on that account saying “For everyone in my DMs, ask Colby to take a photo right now .”


Masvidal’s manager Malki Kawa also weighed in on the alleged incident.

Covington and Masvidal have been engaged in one the most vicious rivalries of recent years, having previously been friends and trained partners at American Top Team in Fla .


After their friendship became volatile Masvidal claimed that Covington and the team split after he refused to pay one his former UFC interim champion welterweight champion coaches for helping him at a training camp. Although Covington denied the claim, Masvidal’s escalating feud with him has only made matters worse.

The rivalry eventually culminated in a fight with Covington earning a unanimous decision over Masvidal at UFC 272. Afterwards, Masvidal promised that his bad blood with Covington was far from settled and he intended to continue their war on the streets the next time they ran into each other.

“He is still someone that I think if I see him on the streets, I will give my best to him to get his f **** jaw broken,” Masvidal stated at the press conference after the fight. “It doesn’t matter if I lost wrestling scrambles tonight, I still think he’s a f***** p****, you know?”

MMA Fighting will provide more information as soon as possible.
