Daniel Cormier says Colby Covington “not a street guy”, unequipped to handle situation with Jorge Masvidal
While in conversation with Ryan Clark on the DC & RC show, the former two-division champion opined that ‘Chaos’ was the farthest thing from a street fighter. Per Cormier’s assessment of the feud between the two UFC welterweights, Covington crossed the line as far as his long-standing beef with Masvidal is concerned.
Claiming that Covington is not equipped to deal with such a situation, Cormier said:
“Colby Covington is not a street guy. Colby Covington is a guy that likes to talk and fight. The shtick may have crossed the line and now it’s gotten him into a situation that he is not really equipped for. That is why, Ryan, he didn’t have anybody in place with him to make sure that it didn’t cross the line.”

Masvidal subsequently took to social media to echo the same sentiment the day after the incident. He took a subtle dig at Covington in a post on Twitter, writing:
“Good morning to everyone except those that think talking about someone’s kids is cool”
According to police reports, Masvidal runs the risk of facing felony battery charges following his attack on Covington.
