Jorge Masvidal rips ‘lying piece of sh*t’ Colby Covington for accusing UFC 296 judges of being anti-Trump

Jorge Masvidal jumped on the opportunity to pile on rival Colby Covington.

Covington (17-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to welterweight champion Leon Edwards at UFC 296 – a fight he thought he won. Covington claimed the judges were against him because of his support of former U.S. President Donald Trump. Covington also shared an X-ray that later revealed he broke his foot in Round 1, which hampered his performance.

Masvidal, who’s also an adoring Trump supporter, went off on Covington for using Trump’s name to make excuses.

“For starters, I never met such a f*cking hoe in my life, such a b*tch, you know?” Masvidal told BroBible of Covington. “He doesn’t know anything about politics. He literally just attaches his name to Trump, hoping that Trump will one day tweet his name or maybe show up to a fight and things like that, but the guy literally knows nothing about politics, knows nothing about immigration laws knows, nothing about 401(k)s, about foreign policies, domestic policies. He knows nothing. All this guy f*cking does is throw his money away, f*cking gambling on poker and pay for prostitutes to be in his f*cking video.

“So for him to go out there and involve Trump’s name so much and then say, ‘The judges don’t like me because I roll with Trump, and they robbed me because of Trump,’ you’re a f*cking piece of sh*t. Now you’re blaming the f*cking greatest president this country has ever seen. You’re blaming your f*cking sh*tty ass loss (on him). You didn’t do a damn thing and everybody says – even your mom f*cking says – you’re a f*cking bum. You’re going to blame that on Trump because you’re such a f*cking bum. You’re a piece of sh*t. It just shows who he is, and of course now he has a broken foot. Guy’s a f*cking cheating, lying piece of sh*t, cop-calling motherf*cker, and I can’t wait to see his ass.”

Masvidal’s disdain for Covington comes as no surprise. Masvidal lost a lopsided unanimous decision to Covington in March 2022, but their beef didn’t end there. Shortly after the loss, Masvidal was arrested for attacking Covington outside a Miami restaurant.

This past November, the former BMF champion pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge as part of a plea deal to have two felony charges of battery and criminal mischief dropped.
