There was already a lot of bad blood between Masvidal and Covington before their clash at UFC 272 earlier this month, which Chaos ended up winning overall after Masvidal couldn’t handle his fight.

The two were best friends and even lived together during their time as teammates at American Top Team. They regularly cornered and were seen as close before Masvidal thought Covington wasn’t paying their money properly and that would let Covington leave the gym.

However, in the build-up to their fight, Covington brought the Masvidal kids into trash-talk and not just Gamebred, but the vast majority of the MMA community felt that was a step too far.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has previously slammed Covington for filing charges against Masvidal, believing the welterweight should have been ready to back up his remarks after he insulted Masvidal’s family.

“If you’re stronger than someone inside the octagon, that doesn’t mean you can insult their children. No one has the right to insult someone’s family,” Khabib said. .

“Once you’ve taken this route, be prepared to back up your point. You were attacked by a professional fighter, the same as you, of your size, and you are going to file a complaint against him with the police? »

Covington has yet to say anything publicly about the attack and given that he normally has something to say about everything, that’s probably indicative in itself.
