UFC 272 live blog: Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal


This is the UFC 272 live blog for Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal, the welterweight main event for UFC 272 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

This is a fight years in the making and carrying a tremendous amount of heat with it. Masvidal and Covington were once “best friends” and trained together. However, their mutual success led to animosity that eventually broke their friendship. The two former training partners and “best friends” Masvidal and Covington will finally end their years-long trash-talking.

Covington is the former interim welterweight champion who has lost twice to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, including a five-round decision loss back in November. Masvidal has also fallen short against Usman twice, being on the receiving end of the 2021 Knockout of the Year at UFC 261. Each man is desperate for a victory to remain relevant in the welterweight title picture.
