In an interview with ESPN’s Dan Le Batard Show, Jorge Masvidal accused Colby Covington of ripping off Masvidal’s coach, which is what soured the relationship between the two fighters.

He said: “He ripped off my coach, that was his coach. We were with him until his title fight. After he won the title, he owed (our coach) a certain amount of money, didn’t pay him. I said if you don’t pay him I’m going to f— you up. My coach got in between it, it doesn’t have to be like this, let it slide, since then, I ain’t talked to the dude. It’s been about a year and some change. It is what it is. All these words they do have consequences because this guy used to sleep on my couch, used to eat off me cause I was the one with the sponsors. He was just still relatively an amateur and I was helping this guy out. It hurts that he would do that in a way just for a like on Facebook, just for a retweet on Twitter, he’s doing that, to get you and me talking about him.
