T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV is set to host a battle between welterweight superstars Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal.
Being a main event, the fight is scheduled to take place over 5-rounds. #2-ranked welterweight contender Covington.
Both fighters are coming off of a loss to welterweight champion Kamarudeen Usman, a fact that upset welterweight contender Leon Edwards, as he awaits his chance to fight for the title, “2 bums coming off losses”.
Masvidal and Covington have a history together, not only being former teammates at ATT Florida, but also becoming roommates at one point. In fact, the pair can be spotted cornering one another through out their previous matches. After a falling out happened between the pair, it has been nothing but bad blood ever since.
Before the contract was signed, Masvidal took to Twitter to call out Covington, “They gonna call you and hopefully the 4th time is a charm you ******* coward. Don’t ***** out now @ColbyCovMMA”
Covington had his own choice words delivered in a text to ESPN’s Brett Okamato, “He better ******* show up.”
UFC 272 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 5 and can be streamed on ESPN+ PPV.
