Jorge Masvidal may be forced to watch from the sidelines until his legal problems are resolved, but he believes he will return to the UFC before 2022 is over. In the aftermath of his alleged attack on Colby Covington, he is currently coping with the fallout.
Masvidal is accused of assaulting his former friend and partner outside a Miami Beach steakhouse on March 21 following their grudge match at UFC 272, which Covington won by majority decision. Covington has claimed that the assault left him with a brain injury.
With regards to his next potential bout, Jorge stated, “There are options, but the first thing that matters is me — to be in the best condition of my life, to improve the fight. Everyone knows that I can throw the hands, the kicks, the knees. People know that they can’t beat me with their hands, that they have to throw me into the fight. It’s something that I have to improve and find the formula for.”
