Colby Covington confirmed that he believes that former Full Send Podcast member Bob Menery set him up when he was attacked by Jorge Masvidal outside of a Miami restaurant.

Last year, Masvidal attacked Covington outside of Papi Steak Miami after having dinner with Menery and the Nelk Boys.


Colby ate dinner on Monday night with the Nelk Boys inside of the restaurant — and we’re told Masvidal did NOT eat at the restaurant.

Sources say as Colby was leaving the restaurant after dinner … Masvidal allegedly attacked him outside.

In our video, you can hear Colby appearing to describe the alleged attack, saying, “He’s over here swinging, trying to come at me, and I ran …”

Colby can later be heard on the footage asking social media star Bob Menery, “How would [Masvidal] know I’m here?”

Menery was later accused by his former co-host Kyle Forgeard of setting Covington up to be ambushed by Masvidal.

“Bob Menery actually set Colby up. So I did see him texting Masvidal while we were at dinner with Colby. So now that I think about it, something really isn’t adding up. So I don’t know. I think Bob set him up.”

Over the weekend, Colby made an appearance at UFC 286 in London and spoke to the media about Menery.

“I don’t know what to believe with that guy (Menery), I think he set me up…I think he’s a fake guy
