UFC star Jorge Masvidal isn’t allowed anywhere near fellow MMA fighter Colby Covington.
This comes after a Miami-Dade County ruling that imposed a stay-away rder that doesn’t permit Masvidal from being within 25 feet of Covington. The report comes via TMZ Sports.
According to the report, Jorge Masvidal’s lawyers claim the order comes due to Covington being “scared” of UFC rival Masvidal. This follows a March incident when Masvidal reportedly attacked Covington outside of a Miami restaurant called Papi Steak, dealing two punches before eventually being booked for aggravated battery. Masvidal’s camp, however, maintains his innocence as they pleaded not guilty to the charges.
At the hearing, Masvidal also formally pled not guilty to charges that he attacked Covington outside of a restaurant in Miami on March 21.
While both Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington are fights in the UFC octagon, there’s a keen difference when it comes to dealing blows in real life.
