Daniel Cormier claims that UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington is dealing with some “serious injuries” from his public attack at the hands of Jorge Masvidal.

Daniel Cormier Claims Covington Suffered “Serious Injuries”

Cormier took to a recent episode of the “DC & RC Show” and praised Covington for winning $50,000 at a poker tournament recently. 

He also said Covington was dealing with “serious injuries” from his “brutal” attack suffered in the streets of Miami at the hands of Jorge Masvidal.

“Colby Covington is dealing with some serious injuries from being brutally attacked on the street by Jorge Masvidal,” Cormier said. (quotes via Sportskeeda)

“Colby Covington needs to stay away from the public eye and doing exactly what he’s doing, and while making money? Hats off to Covington.

“He’s doing what he needs to do, relaxing, playing cards and making money.”

Covington and Masvidal were once best friends. The former American Top Team (ATT) teammates then turned bitter rivals after reaching the top of the 170-pound UFC rankings.

They finally got to settle their differences at UFC 272 back in March. Covington dominated the fight from start to finish with his wrestling.

“Chaos” took home the unanimous decision win. A few weeks after the fight, Masvidal followed Covington to a local restaurant, where he attacked Covington, apparently causing several injuries. 

Now, the pair will engage in another battle – this time, a legal battle as a result of what occurred. Since the attack, Covington hasn’t been as active on social media or been doing as many interviews.
