With UFC 272 basically a week away, the trash talk is HEATING UP immensely.

Former best friends and teammates Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington are nine days away from fighting in the main event of UFC 272 in Las Vegas. We already knew the build up to the fight would be vile, and they would be swinging below the belt, and they are not disappointing.

Masvidal Says Covington Cried Over Comments


On Thursday, Masvidal dropped a Q&A type video on his personal Youtube channel, and he revealed some interesting things about his former roommate. When asked to tell a story about Covington being sensitive, ‘Gamebred’ unleashed some behind-the-scenes stuff.

“How about he used to read comments and literally would start to bawl up in tears about to cry. I would have conversations with him like ‘bro, you don’t know who the fu*k these people are, you can’t care what people say.’ In his interviews back when he was the nice guy when he used to wrestle guys, people would shit on him left and right. I had to mentor him through it,” Masvidal said

“Personally, comments don’t make or break my day, you know. This dude? I would have to talk with this man, like ‘hey, don’t cry, it’s people you don’t know.’ That’s why he shut off the comment section numerous times after fights. He really cannot take that critsism when it’s truly over the top and people are talking shit, he truly breaks. He acts like doesn’t.


Masvidal would then say Covington has facial herpes that he tries to hide with his glasses when he gets nervous.

“When he starts to get nervous, he gets mat herpes so he has to wear glasses because his facial herpes break out. It’s f*cking disgusting. That’s why he wears glasses in indoor places. Crazy right? F*cking pig.”

Yikes. STD accusations thrown into MMA trash talk? That’s a first for us. 

Covington has yet to respond to these claims, but he’s not going to have to wait very long as fight week is next week, and he will have all of the spotlight on him, including a press conference that will be fireworks.

Covington vs. Masvidal goes down March 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
