This one is personal. Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal were once great friends and training partners. Now, they have become enemies due to money.
Covington refused to pay Masvidal’s striking coach. He then made comments about Masvidal and his family, ultimately leading to both fighters getting kicked out of their gym. Masvidal was eventually welcomed back.
There is no love lost between these two. They both want to knock each other out. Masvidal should come out aggressive and look to put the lights out early. Covington is the better overall fighter and likely would like the fight to go into the later rounds. However, he will be aggressive and put pressure on Masvidal from start to finish, so there will be big strike opportunities for both fighters.
