Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal are once again beefing in public.

Last year Masvidal was arrested for allegedly sucker-punching Covington at a Miami restaurant weeks after their fight at UFC 272.


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?”

During a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Masvidal said that he planned to “legally murder” Covington in the Octagon before his career is over.

“I didn’t get him that time [we fought], but I promise you before my career’s over I’m gonna f—king murder Colby in the cage. Legally,”

“Allegedly a lot of things happened [illegally], bro. I don’t know they’re saying a lot of things, but it’s all allegedly, cous. S—t, man. I don’t know what they’re talking about, man. But legally, in the cage, in the UFC, I’m gonna f—king snatch his soul one way or another.”

Colby has since fired back at Masvidal during an interview with Mike Gunzelman on Outkick.

“I mean does anyone believe anything that guy says anymore? He’s freaking delusional. He’s gotten beat up, smacked around this whole entire life by me. He knows I’m big brother, there’s nothing he can do… I sent him down to the prelims [after he defeated him].”

“I know him. I lived with him for 7, 8 years. Shared a lot of memorable times at the time together, so I know him deep down inside. I’ll tell you one thing Gunz, he’s a broken man. The things he says, I promise you – that guy is completely broken.”

If Colby and Masvidal win their upcoming fights it’s almost a certainty that they’ll fight each other later this year.
