Jorge Masvidal & Colby Covington: What Happened?

Back in March, Masvidal allegedly attacked Covington outside of a restaurant in Miami Beach. The incident occurred just a few weeks after Covington defeated Masvidal via unanimous decision at UFC 272.

Masvidal was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a mask and criminal mischief. He was released on $15,000 bail. Masvidal had been booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

Masvidal has pleaded not guilty on both charges. It’s been said that Masvidal’s legal team will request a medical evaluation of Covington as well as an inspection to determine whether or not he’s truthful about his Rolex being damaged during the incident.
