- Sean O’Malley thinks things may not end up well for Jorge Masvidal after assaulting Colby Covington
- “Sugar” explained how he thinks Masvidal felt it would be good to do to Covington what he did to Leon Edwards in 2019
A lot has been said about Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington’s infamous altercation in Miami. Masvidal is now facing two charges and is set to appear in court this month. However, the UFC has yet to make its move. Speculating on what could be waiting for “Gamebred” in the near future, Sean O’Malley reckoned it might not be a positive one.
The UFC’s “BMF” could be in trouble
Speaking on “This Past Weekend w/ Theo Von,” O’Malley said that what appeared to be publicity at first has gone way out of hand. And now, Masvidal could be facing the consequences of taking things too personal.
“There’s a fine line between entertainment and making it personal and some people are on different lines,” O’Malley explained. “Colby was on the entertainment line. Jorge was on the personal line. I think Colby was on the personal line, too, but I don’t know. It’s not a good look for Jorge.”
Masvidal thought “people will love it”
This wasn’t the first time Masvidal assaulted a fellow UFC fighter outside the octagon. It can be recalled that in 2019, “Gamebred” also attacked Leon Edwards backstage at UFC London after their respective fights.
O’Malley also assumed that since the altercation with Edwards gained popularity at the time, Masvidal could’ve thought that it would also be a big hit if he does the same to Covington.
“People loved it when he did it to Leon. Boom, boom, boom – pieced him up right there. (People) loved it,” O’Malley added. “People f*cking loved that. Maybe Jorge thought, ‘I’m going to go do it to Colby – people will love it.’”
Masvidal has pleaded not guilty on all charges and will have his next trial on April 21.
