- Nelk Boys member Kyle Forgeard claims ‘Full Send Podcast’ host Bob Menery contacted Jorge Masvidal during the night the altercation with Colby Covington happened
- Masvidal pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial next month
Colby Covington was partying with the Nelk Boys on the night he had an altercation with Jorge Masvidal and his crew. Now, a member of the Nelk Boys is accusing his another member of setting up “Chaos.”
“Something really isn’t adding up”
In a short video clip taken moments after the altercation, Covington was seen outside the Papi Steak restaurant surrounded by the cops. He could be heard asking Bob Menery of the Nelk Boys, “how would he know I’m here?,” referring to Masvidal.
Menery then appeared to have a logical response and answered Covington with, “You’re all over the internet.”
However, Menery’s Nelk Boys co-member and podcast co-host Kyle Forgeard, who was also at present when the incident happened, recently revealed that “something really isn’t adding up.” According to Forgeard, he saw Menery “texting Masvidal” while they were having dinner with Covington in the restaurant and it’s beginning to appear to him that probably a set up.
“Just a little disclaimer for all the UFC fans, I know you guys saw what happened with the whole restaurant shit with Colby [Covington] and [Jorge] Masvidal,” Forgeard said in a disclaimer on The Full Send podcast. “Bob Menery actually set Colby up. So I did see him texting Masvidal while we were at dinner with Colby.”
“So now that I think about it, something really isn’t adding up,” he continued. “So I don’t know. I think Bob set him up.”
Many fans have pointed Menery out as a ‘hater’ of Covington. This was due to Menery and Covington ‘butting heads’ on the latest episode of the podcast. You can watch their argument below.
Covington pressed charges and Masvidal has now been charged with aggravated battery resulting to great bodily harm, which could possibly reach the criteria for a second-degree felony. The UFC’s “BMF” presented a written plea of ‘not guilty’ on Thursday and is scheduled to appear in court for trial on April 21.
Covington and Masvidal both swore that their feud did not end at UFC 272. Apparently, the two top UFC welterweight contenders said it like it is.
