Colby Covington SLAMS “street Judas” Jorge Masvidal: “He’s a piece of sh*t”
What ever friendship has existed between Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal now seems completely gone.
The two trained and even lived together in Florida for several years. However as both began rising through the UFC ranks, the tone shifted from friendly to antagonistic. Most are in agreement that Covington was the first to start berating Masvidal, calling him a journeyman amongst other things. Now there is a flat out hostile tension between the two, and that hasn’t changed thus far.
In fact, Covington decided to take a scorched earth approach towards his former friend when speaking out in a recent interview. Masvidal has been announced as the next title challenger to Kamaru Usman’s title reign. However Covington doesn’t think the fight will materialise.
“I mean, I think the plan is pretty clear, I wait for my rematch because that’s what I rightfully deserve,” Covington told BJPenn.com. “I don’t think it’s going to come to fruition because I think Journeyman Jorge Masvidal AKA Street Judas—If you guys know who Judas is from the Bible—he’s not going to sign the dotted line because he’s going to want to wait for that Conor fight. He’s going to want to wait for big money fights. He’s not going to want to fight Marty Fake Newsman and risk losing all the hype that he has, because that’s all Journeymen Jorge Masvidal is right now, hype.”
It’s hard to discount Masvidal’s massive success and rise in popularity, however Covington discounted this. In fact, the controversial welterweight decided to get extremely personal. He brought up how Masvidal is as a person, and even began commenting on on Masvidal’s family.

“Let me tell you that he hit lightning in a bottle,” Covington said. “Big fucking deal. The dude’s got 15 fucking losses on his record. He sucks at fucking fighting. He’s a piece of shit fucking person. You know. This is coming from someone who used to live with him and knows all the ins and outs about him. He’s a fucking dirtbag and there’s a reason, fucking, a lot of his family doesn’t even talk to him anymore. So I don’t think he’s going to sign the dotted line against Marty Fake Newsman (Kamaru Usman), and then I’m getting my fucking rematch. That’s going to be that.”
If there’s one thing that was made clear leading up to and after Masvidal’s 2019 fight with Ben Askren, it’s that the former takes things personal. He felt disrespected by Askren ahead of their bout, and took it out on Askren violently. Even after Askren was visibly stiff from being knocked out, Masvidal dealt two extra, vicious shots before being stopped by the referee.
There is very real bad blood between Covington and Masvidal.
