The American branded Masvidal a "street Judas" and eyes his first title defence against the BMF champion.

Masvidal has pulled no punches when responding to Covington's damning nickname. He took to social media to share two brutal posts aimed at Covington as the former friends continue to stoke their intense rivalry.

"Remember when I used to let you sleep on the couch? #hitemup you were crying cause those Brazilian girls punked you and I put you on. I fed you, clothed you and you sold out for 7 likes sad that's all you got for a title fight. 13th disciple is a bitch #theresurrection," he Tweeted.

In another post, he said: "Remember when your ass got tried on south beach and me and Ike had to save your ass from some real goons fucking you up? When tibau whooped your ass so hard in sparring and you came crying to me asking if it's ok to be scared like a bitch? #thecrucifixion."

Covington spoke about a potential showdown with Masvidal ahead of his UFC 245 bout.

"That's a fight that intrigues me big time," he said. "He tries to call himself 'Street Jesus', but he's really 'Street Judas'. It's an easy fight. He knows what happens when I get my hands on him. I break him.

"We're going to fight one way or another. Whether it's in the UFC Octagon, or a backyard of Dan Lambert's house, or in the parking lot at American Top Team. I just hope that it's in the UFC Octagon, so he can get his medical bills paid by the UFC, and I don't want to go to jail for assault for beating his ass."
