The pair used to be very close friends and training partners at American Top Team, but the pair began butting heads as they both escalated to the top of the welterweight division. The relationship eventually turned toxic and now there’s some real needle between them.
Covington’s latest onslaught came of the What the Heck show where Covington claimed that, at this point, he won’t even wait for the fight take place in the cage and will get right to work if he sees Masvidal on the street.
“Me and Street Judas, Masvidal, are 100 percent going to fight before it’s all said and done. We might fight a couple of times, because if I see him in the street, it’s going to be a fade session. He’s going to get put on the concrete, I’m going to drop him on his fucking head and put stitches in the back of his head.
It’s not going to be nice Mike; I promise you that and he knows that, deep down inside he knows. But he’s willing to take a paycheck in the UFC to get his ass whooped because he knows the UFC is going to pay his fucking medical bills. Besides that, if we fight on the street, I’m going to drop him on his fucking head, and he’s never going to be the same person again because he’s going to be concussed, the concrete’s going to mess with him. I’ll probably kick his teeth in too, while I’m at it.”
Covington went on to call Masvidal a “piece of shit” for bragging out dining and dashing in restaurants such as Denny’s as well. “Chaos” then went on to say he has much more to reveal on Masvidal but is saving it all for the build-up to the fight.
With Masvidal strongly rumoured to be the next in line to take on Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title, a beef has started emerging between those two fighters as well. However, Covington believes all of the beef there is purely fake hype just to try and sell the fight more.
“Just because he’s a piece of shit. I mean the guy’s claiming he’s the ‘sucker punch king.’ He’s claiming for being out at Denny’s and being the ‘dine and dash king.’ Dude, you’re a piece of shit. You’re dining and dashing on single mothers that are working at Denny’s because they’re trying to put food on the table for their child and you’re bragging about being proud of dining and dashing on them? The guy’s the lowest scum denominator of earth.
He’s the fakest piece of shit. He turned his back on me for money and his management team. People are going to find out the real truth about him, I mean he’s going to get exposed soon. I know so much about him and it doesn’t make sense to come out yet. When we fight, it will all be built up in the fight but until then, he’s just going to keep being that fake piece of shit.”
