Jorge Masvidal Savagely Trolls Colby Covington After American Top Team Implement New Rule
Jorge Masvidal has aimed a brutal swipe at former friend Colby Covington after American Top Team (ATT) implemented a "zero tolerance' policy in the gym.
ATT owner Dan Lambert laid down a new trash-talking policy, a "gag order" on talking about people at the gym unless you have a fight booked against that person.
And the baddest motherf**ker of the Octagon wasted no time in responding to the gym's new rule by savagely poking fun at Covington on social media.
"F*ck coby. The most fragile most sensitive guy in ufc history. Can't kick me out cause this rule was for fighters only. Not crotch sniffers that get their jaw broken by other crotch sniffers. @AmericanTopTeam we all know that dude is no fighter," he wrote on Twitter.

Speaking to MMA Fighting about ATT's trash-talking policy, Lambert explained: "It's gotten personal, and I think I was wrong.
"I think I made a mistake. I think I should have nipped it in the bud, and it's gotten to the point where it's trickled down where it affects coaches, it affects training partners, it affects vibes at the gym, and as a result, we've adjusted and come up with a new policy.
"Unless you have a bout agreement to fight someone, in which case there obviously needs to be some promotion, there's a gag order on talking about people at the gym. If that's something a fighter chooses they need to do, then they have to go train somewhere else."
Masvidal and Covington are currently without fights amid the coronavirus crisis.
But the Miami native has been linked with a fight against UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman for the promotion's International Fight Week event in July, while 'Chaos' wants a showdown with ex-title holder Tyron Woodley, whose bout with Leon Edwards fell through due to the global pandemic.
