Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington, two names, two of the biggest draws in UFC roster right now, are tied together in possibly the baddest rivalry of all time and you know it when you see Masvidal raising his voice and losing his temper vocally. Masvidal and Covington last fought a title fight against the reigning defending welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and have come short against the pound for pound king so far twice.

However, this fight between Covington and Masvidal taking place on March 5, 2022, at UFC 272, might probably lead to an assurance that they might go in a trilogy against the champion. Before their title fights, both the fighters have been on a notorious run over the UFC Welterweight division. Masvidal had his time of year in 2019 when he won back to back fights and became the first and only holder of the BMF title made only for one fight in UFC history. Covington so far has been considered the toughest competitor Usman has fought so far.

As Masvidal was giving his interview in a split-screen format opposite Covington organised by ESPN MMA and hosted by Stephen A. Smith, Masvidal was recorded by his manager Abraham Kawa and man did he look all fired up to beat Covington on sight.

Watch this clip below as Masvidal asks Covington the PPV sales of the latter’s last fight against Usman that happened at UFC 268 back in November 2018 at Madison Square Garden, New York. Masvidal retweeted Kawa’s video with the caption: “My man @stephenasmith had more fun than me…. Maybe #therealisback

What do you make of this clip and Masvidal getting furious over the screen looking at Covington? Who do you think wins this fight between the two? This can be called a relatively striking heavy fighter in Masvidal going against a grappling heavy fighter in Covington, but you never know what tricks may both pull of each other and therefore it becomes even more feasible that maybe Covington would want to stand and bang in aggression and Masvidal might want to take Covington down and ground and pound until someone breaks the two apart.
