Jorge Masvidal trashes Colby Covington, calls him “most sensitive guy in UFC history”

UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal trashed his American Top Team teammate Colby Covington, calling him the “most sensitive guy in UFC history.” Despite being teammates at ATT, Masvidal and Covington have been going back-and-forth at each other for months, but this week the owner of ATT Dan Lambert instituted a no trash talking policy between […]

Jorge Masvidal deems Colby Covington ‘the most fragile, most sensitive guy in UFC history’

The beef between Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington is well-documented at this point.

Once friends, the two top UFC welterweight contenders have become bitter rivals. This was most recently exemplified by a tweet posted by Masvidal (35-13 MMA, 12-6 UFC) on Tuesday. In the span of 245 characters, Masvidal blasted Covington (15-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC), calling the former UFC title challenger a “crotch sniffer” and “the most fragile most sensitive guy in UFC history.”

The tweet was a response to a recently implemented policy at American Top Team, the home of both fighters. According to gym owner Dan Lambert, fighters on the team will no longer be permitted to talk trash to one another unless there is a pending bout agreement between them.

In his tweet, Masvidal said he’s still allowed to talk trash to Covington, since he doesn’t consider Covington a fighter. “Can’t kick me out cause this rule was for fighters only,” Masvidal wrote. “Not crotch sniffers that get their jaw broken by other crotch sniffers.”

Neither Masvidal nor Covington has competed yet in 2020. Masvidal defeated Nate Diaz by doctor’s stoppage in the inaugural “BMF” title fight at UFC 244 in November. One month later, Covington lost to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman by fifth-round TKO at UFC 245.

The end results of the two fights sets up a summer showdown between Usman and Masvidal. Where Covington fits in the current 170-pound title picture is yet to be determined.

Jorge Masvidal rips on Colby Covington despite ATT no trash-talk policy

Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal

Colby Covington recently apologized to American Top Team teammate Dustin Poirier after he felt like he went awry of team owner Dan Lambert’s no trash-talk directive. Jorge Masvidal, however, ripped on Covington, proclaiming him excluded from the exclusive club.

Masvidal and Covington were at one time friends, but their relationship has quickly eroded over the past couple of years. Both have shot up the UFC welterweight ranks and could now be on target to eventually face each other. Lamber, of course, is hoping that would happen in the Octagon, not in his gym.

MMA Rumors: Mousasi vs. Adesanya and Masvidal vs. Khabib

Back again for a Monday edition of MMA Rumors. With fight announcements, the odd piece of breaking news and more, we figured we’d change it up and throw some rumours at you. Today’s MMA rumors feature a pair of fantasy match ups. Gegard Mousasi showing interest in fighting Israel Adesanya and a rumor involving Jorge Masvidal and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

MMA Rumors 

Mousasi vs. Adesanya

Rumor: In an interview with MMA Junkie former Bellator middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi expressed interest in fighting UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

 

This fight would be incredible. But, to make this happen we would need to see the UFC and Bellator hold a cross promotion card. Fans would love it, but I don’t see it happening. At the end of the day it all comes down to money, Dana White probably doesn’t want to share the revenue of a fight card with Scott Coker.

Currently Mousasi is scheduled to fight Douglas Lima at Bellator 242 for the vacant middleweight title. Adensenya will most likely be fighting Paulo Costa next after he defended his title against Yoel Romero at UFC 248.

Mousasi claimed that if they were to fight that he of course would win. Do you agree with him?

Masvidal vs. Nurmagomedov

Rumor: Jorge Masvidal answered a fan question on Youtube about potential being interested in a super fight at lightweight against Khabib.

Masvidal has a record of 5-2 at lightweight but he hasn’t fought at that weight division since April 2015. However, he feels like he never got a fair shot as a lightweight. In the MMAfighting.com article Masvidal explains how he only started getting top 5 fighters when he moved up to welterweight.

There is some strange things happening in the world right now so this fight could potentially happen. But both of these fighters have other things on the horizon. Khabib has to worry about fighting Tony Ferguson and Masvidal wants to fight Kamaru Usman for the welterweight championship.
