Colby Covington wants to end the career of ‘Dirtbag’ Jorge Masvidal

It didn’t take long for previous UFC interim welterweight champ Colby Covington to absolutely no in on his next challenger after his 2nd loss to promote Kamaru Usman in the UFC 268 centerpiece on Saturday.

Throughout the UFC 268 post-fight interview, Covington set his sights on previous colleague and good friend Jorge Masvidal. The 2 have actually ended up being competitors recently. Masvidal is set up to deal with Leon Edwards at UFC 269 on Dec. 11. Covington believes Masvidal ought to take out of that battle.

“I think the most logical step is the heated rivalry with me and my former roommate ‘Street Judas’ Masvidal. He should probably pull out of that fight with Leon ‘Scott’ and we should just run it,” Covington stated. “That’s a heated rivalry. He talked so much sh*t in the media and said so many things about me.”

“I just want to hold these people accountable for the way they run their mouth in the media, and it makes sense.”

Covington wants to deal with the No. 7 ranked Masvidal even if he loses to No. 3 ranked Edwards. A loss to Edwards would put Masvidal on a three-fight losing streak. He’s coming off back-to-back losses to promote Usman.

“If he (Masvidal) goes ahead with that Leon ‘Scott’ fight, Hunter Campbell, I just pray to you, please God don’t cut him after that third loss in a row. Save him around and let me be the one that ends his career,” Covington stated.
