In the clip, Covington can be heard saying: "He’s over here swinging, trying to come at me, and I ran out the back of the room."
Speaking to Menery, he said: "How would he even know I’m here?"
Menery then tweeted: "All I can say is I’m extremely disappointed in @GamebredFighter as a professional fighter tonight. You let down alot of people tonight bro. Disappointed."

Of course, it comes after Covington outpointed Masvidal at UFC 272.
The Las Vegas clash was billed as best friends-turned-bitter rivals following their time together at American Top Team.
Covington, who still trains in Miami but at MMA Masters, declared himself the 'King of Miami' following his unanimous decision victory.
