Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal

Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal were once friends, even sleeping on each others couches and building each other up to the media. But that all changed and now these two are one of te UFC's most volatile feuds.

Leading up to their highly-anticipated fight, which took place in March 2022, Covington's trash talk took a new low. For a man who is known for taking the low road, he went lower by mentioning Masvidal's wife and kids.

Their fight was uneventfully expected as Covington used his superior wrestling to dominate Masvidal all rounds and win the fight easily.

But that's not where it ended.

On March 21, just days removed from their fight, Masvidal sucker punched Covington on the streets of Miami. He was later arrested (after admitting to the attack on socia media) and is currently awaiting trial.

Something tells us that won't be the last time we hear from Masvidal and Covington.
