Jorge Masvidal Branded A "Journeyman" By UFC Rival In Brutal Attack

Jorge Masvidal Branded A "Journeyman" By UFC Rival In Brutal Attack

Colby Covington has savagely branded Jorge Masvidal a "journeyman" and says his legacy won't be defined by fighting him.

Masvidal dismissed Covington as a potential opponent following his defeat to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 251.

And 'Chaos' Covington sounds just as uninterested in fighting 'Gamebred' as he launched a stinging attack on his former American Top Team teammate.

"I could care less about fighting him," he told Submission Radio. "I don't need to prove to fight him to prove my legacy in this organization and my legacy. My legacy won't be defined by fighting journeyman like him."

The former UFC interim welterweight champion continued by expressing his desire to rematch Usman.

"So, I could care less if I ever fight him. I'm gonna get my rematch with Marty Fakenewsman and I will hold that undisputed title soon, and anybody can come get it. I take on all-comers.

"You know, he wants to pick and choose easy fights, 'oh, I want to fight Nate Diaz. Oh, I want to fight Demian Maia, avenge my loss to a f**king 40-year-old virgin.'

"So, I'm not a little bitch like Street Judas, I'll beat everybody in the world, and I don't need to pick and choose my fights like him."

Masvidal, meanwhile, still has plenty of options available to him after suffering his first defeat since 2017, but the Miami megastar has ruled out facing Covington.

Speaking at the UFC 251 post-fight press conference, he said: "The fragile guy with the MAGA hat, definitely not him.

"Cause he got finished by this guy with a full training camp. He had like 12 weeks and he got finished by that guy. That guy's below me and this dude by a lot.

"Six days' notice and I was nowhere near getting hurt or getting put out. The gas tank wasn't the best but I wasn't going nowhere as far as damage goes. Everybody could see that. So definitely not that punk."
