Dana White gave his views on Jorge Masvidal’s altercation with Colby Covington in Miami last month.
Masvidal was arrested after reportedly attacking rival Covington outside a restaurant in Miami Beach, Florida. In the incident, which occurred on the evening of March 21, ‘Gamebred’ was accused of assaulting ‘Chaos’.
The attack resulted in injuries to Covington’s tooth and wrist. Masvidal has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated battery and criminal mischief.
Appearing on TMZ Sports, White was asked about his thoughts on the situation. The UFC boss made it clear that he condemns the alleged attack:
“I don’t condone guys getting into fights in the street and I hate everything about it. But, again, this is a business where I’m going to fight you and there’s a certain level of what I believe is ‘man code’ where you don’t talk about people’s families. You don’t talk about the kids and you don’t talk about their wives, especially with a guy like Jorge Masvidal.”
Covington and Masvidal were former training partners and close friends who became rivals. They faced each other at UFC 272, where ‘Chaos’ won by unanimous decision.
